President Kenyatta has right to offer political direction, Peter Kenneth says

Former Gatanga MP Peter Kenneth has defended President Uhuru Kenyatta’s position in succession politics, claiming that he has the right to give advice.
Kenneth announced in Nyeri that President Kenyatta will lead the Jubilee Party on a countrywide popularization tour.
“As the leader of this country and the kingpin of central Kenya, Uhuru has the right to marshal his troops in the way he wishes, so no one should criticize him for taking this stance; we are confident that he will resist any UDA influence,” Kenneth stated.
Kenneth dismissed Deputy President William Ruto’s alleged presidential lead, claiming that he had been running alone, but that now that additional contenders had entered the race, the genuine front runner will be exposed soon.
He further downplayed any United Democratic Alliance (UDA) influence in central region saying the euphoria is a mirage and the jubilee party will erase any gains.
“Before we as jubilee have been working for the nation time for politics is up we are sure to beat any opposition to Azimio in this region,” he said.
He further indicated that people should wait for the jubilee National Delegates Convention (NDC) where the president will give direction but he said that he supports the candidature of Raila Odinga in the presidential race.
Kenneth who is being taunted as possible successor of President Kenyatta in the region said that Ondinga has every right to choose who he wants as his running mate adding that he is equal to task.
At the funeral, Mama Ida Odinga stayed clear of politics but said that the church has a huge role to play in the democratic space in the country,
