Uhuru Kenyatta Contemplating Resignation As Kibaki Return Awaited

In his Facebook statement soon after the ICC bombshell, DPM and Finance Minister Uhuru Kenyatta promised to issue a "more comprehensive statement" in the next few days but with his continued silence and William Ruto taking it upon himself to announce joint thanksgiving rallies with his co-accused in Eldoret and Kiambu, sources close to Uhuru intimate  that the DPM is actually contemplating resignation from government.
---------------------------------------
---------------------------------------
Following an emergency family gathering called by family matriarch Mama Ngina Kenyatta, a resolution was passed that Uhuru should take a sabatical from politics, forego presidential ambitions and instead work to defend himself at the ICC and restore the good name of the late Mzee Kenyatta for the sake of younger Kenyatta siblings.

TeamUhuru.co.ke which was previously very active on twitter and facebook has hardly sent out any updates for the last 48 hours.

Interestingly, Uhuru is now deemed internationally as the most prominent indictee in Africa going by the prominence his name and that of his late father has received in global coverage including BBC, CNN, NYT, FT, FORBES and others since the announcement of the pre-trial chamber decision. BBC World Service even featured Kenyan case on its popular 'Have your say' talk show which has the widest reach of any radio talk show in the world and is very popular with African listeners.

Some Kenyatta family members are upset that Uhuru continues to take the flack and bear responsibility for a presidency which Kibaki is enjoying and apparently enjoying ICC immunity from despite having been the one who issued orders for co-operation with Mungiki. The hostility being shown towards Kibaki by some Kenyatta kin is understable given Uhuru has always been the favourite and heir apparent of the Kenyatta sons.

Sources also inform us that the Kenyatta family is apprehensive about a possible asset freeze of the extensive Kenyatta estate by the ICC for purposes of  compensating post elections violence victims. Having already profiled the assets of all suspects and now Uhuru reportedly being advertised as the wealthiest Kenyan in the world, the ICC indictment could not have come at a worse time for Kenyatta family. Uhuru's personal wealth was subject of close courtroom examination my ICC prosecutor Moreno Ocampo during the hearings in 2010.

The Kenyatta family takes the threat of asset seisure by ICC seriously and would rather fight to defend the family wealth than finance another unbankable presidential bid by Uhuru in 2012 against an opponent like Raila Odinga. Some Kenyatta family members have even suggested sending an olive branch to the ODM supremo given the history between their fathers and that the senior Odinga actually gave up the presidency of Kenya to Kenyatta during independence.

Meanwhile, Kibaki was this morning reportedly addressing members of EA Legislative Assembly in Kampala, Uganda and his return is currently unknown but Uhuru is said to be weighing his options following stern orders from Mama Ngina as he await Kibaki return.

Let the truth be told Phil! Ruto fought for Raila and Uhuru fought for Kibaki! now both are experiencing the aftermath of being loyal and obedient foot soldiers while the two "principals (sic)" sit pretty in State and BP Shell House watching as their lieutenants catch the flak for them? not fair at all!

Chris,

You are a genius

seems that "Kenyattas" feel betrayed by Kifaki.

That is how we should see from Nation newsper-their editorial and serialisation of the ICC judgement!

Nation has always been accused of being pro-establishment. No more

O mundhu kwa mundhu.

Kumethuka

Kifaki is no longer safe-lets wait for full hearing and as Muthaura's statement stated,he will not deal in paper staments but "Real paper"

Are we watching a Bashir or a Bagbo unfolding in our lifetime?

Mto manta is Kibaki's undoing.VERY GREEDY CHARACTER INDEED.

SIKU YA MWIZI NI FORTY

All things taken into, Uhuru Kenyatta may emerge as one of the most preferred contenders for the presidency in 2017, if he conducts himself with class while the ICC's heat is on, as well as pucblic scrutiny is focused on every move that he makes, every words that he utters, and the type of company - be it political or personal - he decides to keep.

If I were Uhuru Kenyatta, and I hope his close advisors are really going to help him out in a variety of strategic matters, I would start planing on safely distancing myself from anything everything and whatever William Ruto, his so-called comrades-in-times of need (opportunists) and company from his backyard are doing and plan to do from now henceforth.

The is a moment to concentrate his energy and resources on the legal defense team rather than trotting around the country peacking ideas and crowing about his presidential bid.

I hate to sound so cliche, but a temporary slow down along the way is in no way tantamount to a derailment of his political dreams come 2017.

This - 2012 - would be the opportune moment to hand the robe over his political opponents like Raila Odinga, Kalonzo Musyoka, George Saitoti, et al and let them hang themselves in one way or another in their desperate search for a place at the State House during the general elections.

People from different political camps will be irritated with my word of advice to Uhuru Kenyatta; a wise general always withdraws for a later attack.

Uhuru Kenyatta should not pay too much attention to the many political, ethnic, class and personal tags that have been attached to his name by many individuals as well as groups of people who still have tons of axes to grind and multitude of unresolved issues with his late father, Kiambu Mafia and anyone who-was-who in the Kenyatta administration - December 1963 - August 1978.

Uhuru Kenyatta and his family will continue to be scapegoated from every ... that went wrong and still goes wrong in Kenya of 2012, and the best medicine is to develop a thick skin.
