The recent reunion of President Uhuru Kenyatta and NASA leader Raila Odinga has opened the lid on many behind the scenes maneuvers that took place since last year’s controversial presidential poll.
Details are emerging that President Uhuru Kenyatta was frustrated by the opposition and viewed it as just out to cause problems to the country.
Kenyatta was first shocked by the outcome of Supreme Court and felt he had been cheated.He also reportedly felt power was gripping out of hand through dubious ways by the opposition.
“At one point, he contemplated disregarding the court order.
He was however advised that doing that would be falling into the devil’s plan,” a source said.
After winning a repeat, which his rival Raila boycotted, sources said Uhuru could not wait to be sworn in and ‘fix things’.
It is after he was sworn in that he promised to crackdown on all dissents.When the Opposition threatened to swear themselves in, ‘young’ advisers are said to have been of the view that all those involved should ‘face the full force of the law’.
“They felt that opposition supporters would only make noise for a few days and then tire up.
There was a feeling too that only a small portion of supporters was disturbing the country,” the source said.
It took the intervention of National Intelligence Service boss Philip Kameru to change the president’s heart.
The plan was to arrest all those who had pushed for the swearing in and then go for Raila himself.
Kameru, described as a quiet but sharp, has the president’s ears due to his experience in military intelligence.
He advised against arresting Raila.
