Bahati Member of Parliament Kimani Ngunjiri seems to have declared war on a legion yet he is all alone.

On Tuesday, the latter staged a defiant walk in the streets of Nakuru Town in protest to President Uhuru Kenyatta's 'Washenzi' (fools) remark in Mombasa, Monday.

The President was apparently responding to Ngunjiri after the lawmaker on Sunday bashed him over his silence as some of his (Uhuru) troops attack Deputy President Uhuru Kenyatta.

And though he is apparently trying to either prove his point and stand with the DP or attempting to elevate his political life by being popular, Ngunjiri is more likely to be the loser.

The vocal lawmaker hails from a region completely allied to the President and coming out as a rebel could see his political life cut short and replaced by a more friendly person.

This is because though he is in close touch with the people of Bahati, the Jubilee party leader can easily pull his strings and have him ousted in the approaching polls just to put him in his place.

Kimani will also have it harder working with Uhuru going forward, thus snubbing the President's functions.

With time, he will come out as a rebel, making it easier for more friendly politicians to win both the party ticket and the main seat in the approaching polls.

Finally, he will soon land into rows with Uhuru's lieutenants and die hards over his growing defiance, and could with time be isolated.
