Mutahi Ngunyi predicts a Kirinyaga take over by Martha Karua

The tyranny of numbers man, Mutahi Ngunyi, is at work again, this time predicting that Martha Karua will be the next governor for Kirinyaga County.

This even as former devolution cabinet secretary Anne Waiguru, whose ministry awarded Mr Ngunyi a tender, is eying the same Kirinyaga governor position.

Mr Ngunyi in his usual self also predicted that Ms Karua will be Deputy President William Ruto’s running mate come 2022.

Jubilee coalition during its inception in 2012 hinted of a four-term presidency starting with President Uhuru Kenyatta followed by a Mr Ruto tenure.

The political analyst, who is famed for his “tyranny of numbers” theory that predicted Jubilee’s victory in 2013, made the statement through his Twitter account on Thursday.

Ms Karua on Thursday asked Kirinyaga residents to vote for President Kenyatta in the next year’s general elections.

The move was a great shift of allegiance from her political friend Cord leader Raila Odinga with whose coalition she has in the past held joint press conferences to fault the Jubilee government.

The political analyst’s prediction was met with mixed reactions from his Twitter followers.
