While being interviewed by BBC’s Sophie Ikenye, the longtime opposition leader Raila Odinga reiterated that although President Kenyatta will be retiring from August after completing his two terms in office, he will still have a significant role to play in Kenyan politics.

Raila Odinga who had recently consolidated top flight political parties in Kenya to come up with the Azimio La Umoja movement in his bid to win the 2022 presidential elections, has revealed that the current President Kenyatta will be given responsibilities by his potential government, which may involve foreign diplomacy or economic advisor.

“Yes, he will be an advisor just as I have done in his government. He can also focus on helping us with advice on the economy and he can take up roles such as mine in foreign diplomacy. There are many roles President Kenyatta can do after his retirement,” stated Mr. Raila Odinga.

According to the Jubilee political party leaders, President Uhuru Kenyatta has a very significant part to play before and after the power transition after the 2022 presidential elections and the overall party’s political agendas.

The Jubilee leaders have decided that Mr. Kenyatta will continue to serve as the party leader even after his presidential tenure has ended, in order to form the next government as an ‘Anchor Partner’. This has been an aim by the Jubilee Parliamentary leaders to further Kenyatta’s legacy.

“The Jubilee Party will seek to get into a coalition with like-minded parties and support a presidential candidate with whom we share common ideals, who will treat us with respect, and with whom we can form the next government as an ‘Anchor Partner’, to continue with the work done during the last 10 years,” read the Jubilee Party statement.
