Who are the strategists?

For the uninitiated, Presidential elections are won or lost at the strategic boiler rooms where the best brains brood over data and strategies 24/7.

Sample these:
#Donald Trump campaign was in a free fall until he brought in respected data cruncher Kellyann Conway. Conway, the first female manager to spearhead a winning presidential campaign in American history, went on to instill discipline in Trumps campaign.

#David Axelrod, a respected communication guru, is credited with the success of Obamas 2008 winning presidential campaign. He is the one who came up with the slogan, YES WE CAN!

#George Bush Jr won the US presidency twice on the strength of the brilliance of renowned political strategist Karl Rove.

#Bill Clinton’s improbable win in the 1992 US presidential elections is credited to two greatest political strategists of their time: Paul Begela and James Caville.

And the question that begs for answers is this: Who are the strategists for Raila Amolo Odinga and Uhuru Muigai Kenyatta?
