Cabinet minister Raila Odinga has warned of a revolution in Kenya if President Daniel arap Moi imposes Uhuru Kenyatta, the son of the countryâ€™s first president, to succeed him, reports Reuben Olita.
Odinga, the energy minister, is leading a faction in the ruling Kanu party opposed to Moiâ€™s plan to install Kenyatta as president when he retires this year.
Kenya Television Network on Sunday night quoted Odinga as warning that a revolution would break out if Kenyatta was imposed on Kenyans.
The station also quoted him as saying he did not fear being sacked from Cabinet for his stand against Moiâ€™s preferred choice.
Odinga, who also announced plans to vie for presidency, is Kanuâ€™s secretary general. He dissolved his National Development Party(NDP) on March 18 to merge with Kanu.
