On Tuesday, Kenyans were treated to free political circus with Deputy Prime Ministers Musalia Mudavadi and Uhuru Kenyatta as the featured clowns.
Mudavadi, the de facto leader of UDF, convened a press conference where he revealed that his TNA counterpart, Uhuru Kenyatta, had agreed to shelve his presidential ambitions in his favour, but failed to honour his word.
But in a tough rejoinder, Uhuru claimed he was "coerced by evil forces" into that move, which has since been denounced by his party’s delegates.
President Mwai Kibaki: Although State House has denied that it is not behind the Jubilee Coalition melee, credible sources indicate the president is deeply involved in the search for his. It is alleged that Kibaki is using his close relatives to force Uhuru to step down in favour of Mudavadi
Prof. Nick Wanjohi: A former chancellor of University of Nairobi and Personal Secretary of President Kibaki, Wanjohi is the man behind Mudavadi’s Presidential bid. He told Uhuru point-blank that Kenya cannot afford his presidency because we will be locked out of the international community.
Brigadier Michael Gichangi: This former Air Force Commander is currently the director of National Security Intelligence Service (NSIS). He is a close confidant of Prof. Nick Wanjohi and the two, according to Miguna Miguna's book Peeling Back The Mask: A Quest for Justice in Kenya, are powerful underground government operatives whose effects are enormous. The two are perceived to be working on a Mudavadi candidature hence he is often referred to as their “project”.
At this point, the name of the former President Daniel Arap Moi comes up but to what extent, we are yet to verify.
A fortnight ago, Uhuru’s foot soldier Rachael Shebesh revealed that some powerful forces in State House are pressuring Uhuru Kenyatta to shelve his Presidential ambitions in favour of Musalia Mudavadi.
State House has denied being involved, but seeing the bungling and confusion with which events are unfolding, it's not rocket science to see Kibaki's hand in all this.
