President Uhuru Kenyatta’s speech on the succession politics has sparked reactions after he championed for the leadership of the elder leaders. Speaking in Nakuru on the inauguration of Nakuru to be the 4th city of Kenya, President Uhuru Kenyatta said that politics is not for sprinters but for the marathoners.

While making his remarks, the President said that those doing sprint politics might end up loosing to the marathoners. The speech looked like the Head of the State was referring to his Deputy William Ruto who has been on the run for campaigns of his Presidential bid in 2022.

The President advised youths to reduce their speed noting that leadership is not about sprinting. He also added that the Elder leader might come slowly in the marathon way to outshine the sprinter.

“Vijana punguzeni speed, uongozi sio sprint, ni marathon. Mzee atakanyaga pole pole akupite ukiwa bado kwa barabara,” he said

President Uhuru’s speech has raised questions where a number of Kenyans believed that he was drumming up support for the former Prime Minister Raila Odinga. President Uhuru and ODM Leader have been severally seen dining on the same table since the handshake.

On the other hand, the President and his Deputy seem to have parted ways as they’ve been believed not to be in good terms.

It’s only 250 days remaining for the country to have the general elections.
