Raila Odinga has been living large since the day he shook hands with President Uhuru and nowadays, he enjoys State Power more than the days of Nusu Mkate.
The Opposition doyen life has drastically changed and regardless of the fact that he does not hold any Government post, he enjoys power both in Kenya and Internationally.
He is accorded VIP treatment by State agencies and according to close sources, he receives briefing on a regular basis from Cabinet Secretaries regarding policy announcements.
Raila operates from his capital offices and receives guests on a daily basis from Government and international delegations and also assists Uhuru in some consultation issues.
Raila is the key figure to watch in 2022 if referendum can kick off as anticipated as he will be the man that can swing the western and Nyanza votes to the candidate who will vie for the Presidency.
If he is given a green light to vie for the big post, it will be an uphill task for Ruto as he may not command majority votes from western, Nyanza and Coast region. Raila will have an advantage due to the fact that Kikuyu’s will not overwhelmingly vote Ruto the same way they did to Uhuru and due to split votes, Raila will definitely win the 2022 elections if only they will be free and fair.
