Uhuru: I want people who will not fight my agenda

What you need to know:

  • Mr Kenyatta’s leadership is winding down and three things appear on top of his mind: his record, his legacy and national unity.
  • Mr Kenyatta looks at the ‘handshake’ as part of the Jubilee Party agenda of uniting the country and ending the winner-takes-all mentality.

President Uhuru Kenyatta is a brilliant politician. Perhaps not in the same calm, furtive and massively cerebral fashion as retired President Mwai Kibaki, or former Prime Minister Raila Odinga’s cheeky smile, rally theatrics and relentlessly pragmatic deal making, or even Deputy President William Ruto’s discipline and famed monumental capacity for the hard slog of politics.
