NASA might not take Kenyans to the promised land if they win- judging by recent utterances

Opposition principals

The National Super Alliance (NASA) five principals are not honest with their pledge of giving the country a desired different set of transformation leadership but are simply lining up to have a test of the nobility that comes with being in power.

This is due to the fact that however good the leadership of their candidate for the presidency would turn out to be if they are lucky to win against President Uhuru Kenyatta, they will still endeavor to make him bow out.

They will definitely argue that it is them who will have helped him rise to power making him a likely transit leader, a Joshua who no matter how energetic he will be on reaching Canaan will be made to be an onlooker with little to do.

Wiper party leader Kalonzo Musyoka during their rally in Ukambani urged the residents to overwhelmingly vote for Raila Odinga as they had agreed it is him they would leave the coveted seat for in 2022.

This means to the leaders it is not how good Mr Odinga will be, if a win is anything to go by, that will determine the tenure. To them it is them helping him clear the way for them as they realised he stood a better chance to defeat the incumbent.

In the event Kenyans decide to vote in the Jubilee leadership for another term or the other way, those backing Mr Odinga for presidency will seek to make 2022 their time.

The reason behind Senator Wetangula, Musalia Mudavadi, Kalonzo Musyoka dropping their bids for the top seat is clearly because they knew they had lesser chances to wrestle Jubilee out of power.

Now, surprisingly they want things easier for them by making Mr Odinga start his journey to statehouse with an assurance that he will let all the doors and windows open for them to get in after a five year term.

This makes it much given to the ODM party leader and the expected is extremely vast. If NASA does not win in the August election, clearly both Kalonzo and Wetangula will have to again prepare for a fight against the Deputy president William Ruto.

At this time they might not enjoy the Raila political rhythm that has over the years been the center of the Kenyan politics.

In August, it might not be easy for the five to sit and agree that they have lost fairly, yet it is the condition they have put forward if they have to accept an unfavorable outcome.

Whether it will be Mudavadi or Kalonzo after Mr Odinga, we will wait and see, but can’t Kenyans be allowed to decide if one deserves more time to lead?
