Political analyst Mutahi Ngunyi has theorised a ploy President Uhuru Kenyatta could be using with the recently amended Electoral Law to bring down CORD leader Raila Odinga.
The professor notes that President Kenyatta was aware that the amendments, which were hastily made amid protests by ODM leaders, would irk Mr Odinga in the wrong way, prompting him to take drastic action.
According to Mr Ngunyi, the former Prime Minister who has already called for mass demonstrations in January, is being set up by the Head of State.
The political scientist highlights that riots in Kenya will give Kenyatta a good ground to taint Mr Odinga as a warmonger, which in turn could cost him votes in the much awaited 2017 General Election.
“Is it possible that Uhuru has set Raila up over this Electoral Law? That Uhuru knows Raila’s reaction to this law will be violent mass action and he wants Raila to get violent to depict him as a warmonger?” Ngunyi questions.
