Former Prime Minister Raila Odinga has for the past few months been viciously fighting tooth and nail to retain his visibly diminishing influence in the national political colloseum.
His predicament that shoved him into his first quagmire began with the courts dismissal of the BBI’s validity, terming it a unpopular bill chipped illegally into the canvas of constitution.
Critics observe, that this sudden move robbed the obviously overconfident Mr Odinga of an almost lubricated and extremely smooth rise to the helm of power, had the BBI sailed through; a feat hardly witnessed in the pages of Kenyan history.
His battles has revolved around a fiery trade of accusations and rejoinder with the Deputy President William Ruto some weeks back, each accusing the other of gross corruption scandals.
Then before the dust settled,came NASA principal Kalonzo Musyoka who contrary to his humble and meek nature, suddenly threatened to pull out of NASA while vehemently refusing to be a water boy ever again in any general election.
Then true to his words, he convened a meeting to pull out of his former coalition expressing confidence that his newly hatched party OKA will sail him through his political journey with him as the Captain come 2022.
Taken aback and now sure of his breaking influence, Odinga hastily convened a truce meeting to lure his parting allies back to his ark, agreeing to share the contested political funds,a move he was initially so vehemently opposed to.
Many political analyst have opined that should Raila snobb forming a coalition with anyone from in his former coalition and choose to fight by himself, his chances of Clinging the presidency will have shrunk down anaemically.
They claim his cards lacks any Ace left,Albeit, Mr Odinga is a seasoned politician.
Often revered to by his admirers as a man who never lacks a plan B.
Now question is, this time around, will he be like the infamous Amalinze the Cat of Things fall Apart, that his back may never touch the political grounds?…or in his skit,will he just run out of luck and suddenly slip to his end?
