Last week Wycliffe Oparanya made a statement which caught the ears of many Kenyans. His statement made many Kenyans to question if he was planning to dump his party leader Raila Odinga. Today Close allies to the deputy President William ruto circulated photos of the governor with the DP. It is said that the DP had a strategy meeting with his team in one of his ranches in Maasai Mara.
We all know that in politics nothing happens out of mere coincidence. So what many Kenyans are asking is what is Oparanya's game plan for 2022? In this article today I want us to look at why Wycliffe Oparanya was present at that meeting.
From the photos, there was Rashid Echesa. It can not be coincidence that Echesa and Oparanya are both present. Wycliffe Oparanya might be thinking of joining the DP's camp. Another photo showed Mwangi Kiunjuri also present. This must mean that these guys are working on a forming a coalition.
In my considered opinion I believe probably Oparanya was present either to represent Raila Odinga in that meeting or he is joining William Ruto's camp and that's why those photos were circulated. Probably they want to tell Kenyans that Oparanya is joining the deputy president.
Many governors and legislators fear joining the deputy president because of the reaction they will get from Raila Odinga and the president. Therefore Oparanya might have opened the doors for others to also move. But I believe this meating was largely intended at discussing 2022 politics and the building bridges initiative. I don't know what you think but that's my take. Do you think Oparanya wants to join the deputy president's camp? Leave a comment below and remember to click the follow button.
