What you need to know:

  • Kenya has to be less hubristic and more strategic to put before the Africa heads of state its best and ablest candidate in 2025.
  • A frenzied Kenya-style ‘Soko Mjinga’ campaigns at roadside markets, media and political spaces is a crude tool that is cutting messily.
  • Certainly, the country has no shortage of able and experienced candidates for the powerful AU seat.
