Is this the parting of ways between Ndii and Raila?

Nasa strategist David Ndii appears to be the latest key political figure to have fallen out with opposition leader Raila Odinga, in the face of realignments in the Kenyan political landscape.

On Wednesday, via Twitter, the outspoken economist suggested – without substantiating – that the recent union between Mr Odinga and Kiambu Governor Anne Waiguru was a ‘KANU’ affair.

Odinga and Waiguru recently closed ranks following a bitter past where the duo would barely see eye to eye, instead preferring to settle their differences in court.

Critics of Kenya’s independence party KANU generally associated it with political dynasties and patronage in leadership.

While commenting on the same thread, Ndii also gave the impression that he had been shortchanged by Odinga.

If indeed the case, this will mark a complete turnaround in the relationship between the two.

As recently as in 2017, Ndii, alongside exiled lawyer Miguna Miguna and former Kakamega Senator Boni Khalwale were among those who vocally defended Odinga during the murky electioneering period.

At some point, Ndii and Miguna were arrested for their political stand.
