Miguna advises Raila Odinga to form shadow cabinet to oversee President Ruto


Lawyer Miguna Miguna has called on Azimio leader Raila Odinga to shift his focus from holding rallies across the country to overseeing President William Ruto’s administration.

Miguna’s advice comes in the form of suggesting that Raila form a shadow Cabinet with appointees assigned to specific ministries and departments to keep a check on the Kenya Kwanza administration.

The move, according to Miguna, will help Raila prepare for the 2032 elections while keeping a check on the government’s performance.

He advised Raila to stop wasting his time holding rallies and instead focus on having his strong men oversee key ministries.

However, Miguna and Raila have been at odds since the latter’s handshake with retired President Uhuru Kenyatta.

Miguna has criticized Raila’s anti-government rallies, and their relationship has not been on cordial terms.

Meanwhile, Raila has been busy holding opposition rallies across the country protesting the high cost of living and calling for electoral reforms.

He has held over 10 rallies in different counties, and recently gave Ruto a 14-day ultimatum to reduce the cost of living.

Should Ruto fail to do so, Raila has promised to stage the “mother of all demonstrations.”

The call by Miguna for Raila to shift his focus comes at a time when the political temperature in Kenya is rising, with the country gearing up for the 2027 general elections.

The call for electoral reforms has been a key issue in the opposition’s agenda, with Raila leading the charge.

Whether Raila will heed Miguna’s advice and form a shadow Cabinet remains to be seen.

However, the call for the opposition leader to shift his focus from rallies to overseeing the government’s performance will undoubtedly continue to spark debate among Kenyan political circles.
