Prof Makau Mutua has stated that Orange Democratic Movement leader Raila Amollo Odinga will cease being the Luo Kingpin if he does not make it to the presidency in 2022.
While speaking to Citizen TV’s Jeff Koinange Live, Makau maintained that the Opposition leader will lose his relevance not only in Nyanza but also in the entire country shall he miss to get the top seat.
At the same time, Makau Mutua said that even the former NASA principals will likely be rendered irrelevant if they don’t get substantial posts in the oncoming general election.
Specifically, Mutua cited Amani National Congress leader Musalia Mudavadi and Wiper Democratic boss Kalonzo Musyoka. According to him, these two leaders will also suffer a similar fate.
Prof Makau Mutua also took a swipe at the newly appointed Chief Justice Martha Koome for going to the statehouse to attend the swearing in ceremony of the 34 judges.
According to him, it was wrong for CJ Martha Koome to attend the swearing in ceremony of the 34 judges knowing very well that 6 had been left out. Besides, Makau argued that even the 34 judges who were sworn ought to have refused to go to the statehouse in a bid to stand in unison with the six.
His sentiments were reiterated by city lawyer Mohamednasir Abdullahi who castigated president Uhuru Kenyatta for going against the law by failing to appoint the remaining 6 judges.
