While addressing mourners during the burial of ANC party boss Musalia Mudavadi’s mother in Mululu Vihiga county, President Uhuru Kenyatta hinted at the possibility of backing his successor from outside the Kikuyu and Kalenjin communities in the next General Election.

He further told off his critics saying he was fully in charge of the country and his silence on political happenings should not be mistaken for weakness.

They are talking and saying people are tired with the leadership from this or that family. Well, let them be. Remember it is the voter that decides at the ballot” he said.

“If that is your argument I can also stand and say there are two communities that have ruled this nation, maybe it is time to give a chance to the other tribes to lead because they also have people.

“When you see a lion that has been rained on, do not mistake it for a cat. Everything has its timing. I am in charge of this government and I am in control of what goes on in there. I don’t want someone to lecture me. I know where I am and I am very clear about where I am going.”

The president’s sentiments were sparked by calls from Kakamega Senator Cleophas Malala, Siaya Senator James Orengo and COTU Secretary General Francis Atwoli who asked Uhuru to go bare knuckles and crack the whip on errant troops in his party and government.

While expressing his anger at the dynasty versus hustler narrative, Mr Kenyatta said he might be pushed into working on a counter-narrative that two communities have led the country since independence and should pave the way for others.

Most of leaders allied to DP Ruto took to Twitter to condemn the utterances made by the President
