Does Francis Atwoli talk secrets with President Uhuru Kenyatta regards to 2022 succession? Atwoli appears to be changing minds, revealing the person who Uhuru will hand over power to after he retires in 2022.
Over couple of months, Atwoli and the Jubilee Vice Chair Mr. David Murathe have been in the front line drumming up support for the ODM chief, Raila Odinga as the country’s next CEO.
The duo had been seen in the BBI rallies declaring that Raila Odinga best fit to succeed Uhuru Kenyatta in 2022, something that many couldn’t believe one day Atwoli would change his minds for a different presidential candidate.
In a video that’s going viral online, Francis Atwoli reveals that Uhuru Kenyatta already has his man in place who will succeed him after he retires in 2022.
This is unbelievable utterance as all around the public domain is that the COTU boss initially knew and believed in one presidential candidate who will take over after Uhuru. This came after Atwoli claimed that William Ruto will not be on the ballot.
I’ve read with amusement how people can take casual banter to ridiculous levels of seriousness. The talk with my guests yesterday was not a serious forum meant to discuss anybody or anything serious, least of all Uhuru’s succession. My guests were just excited by the home welcome

According to Atwoli, Uhuru Kenyatta is in for Baringo senator Hon Gideon Moi who is the son to the late President Daniel Toroitich Arap Moi.
Atwoli may be right as no one knows the secrets that the late President Moi shared with Uhuru Kenyatta after the latter’s visit to Moi’s Kabarak home. Could there be something that Atwoli, Gideon Moi and Uhuru know that William Ruto and Raila Odinga don’t know?
This may be true as Atwoli is a known long term KANU loyalist and who may have stole some succession secrets. And if this will happen, where is the place for William Ruto in Uhuru’s heart? Is Uhuru playing a game against his deputy?
What about Raila Odinga, does he see hope in the 2022 succession? Does Uhuru know that he should respect the late president and hand over power to his son, Gideon Moi?
