Opinion: Is President Uhuru Grooming This Mt Kenya Politician Behind The Scenes to be His Successor?


The Mount Kenya Region is still in confusion on who is the right leader to replace President Uhuru Kenyatta as the region's spokesperson. This is mainly because the region lacks political unity. The Central Kenya region is very vital when it comes to national polls bearing in mind that this region has produced 3 out of the four presidents Kenya has ever had

However, there is one leader that President Uhuru Kenyatta seems to grooming behind the scenes as the right person to succeed him. This is none other than Dennis Waweru who has his roots from the great Central Kenya. To start with, Dennis Waweru won his first political seat as the MP for Dagoretti South thanks to the massive support from President Uhuru Kenyatta

Prior to this elections, Dennis Waweru was a professional investment banker for 20 years before he was allegedly adviced by President Uhuru to join politics in the same year President Uhuru won his first presidential seat. When Governor Mike Sonko was recently impeached, Jubilee had already cone out to indicate that Dennis Waweru was to fly the party's flag in the by elections not until Anne Kananu was sworn in.

Recently, President Uhuru Kenyatta has evidently put his trust on Dennis Waweru whereby he has been put as the chairman of Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) to represent President Uhuru Kenyatta together with Junet Mohamed who is set to represent Raila Odinga.
