Progress On The Handshake is Kept Secret To Wade Off Saboteurs- ODM Chair John Mbadi Says

Suba South MP John Mbadi has said the opposition has even expecting Uhuru Kenyatta’s State of the Nation Address set for 2nd May at the Parliament.

“The State of the Nation address is a constitutional requirement …we are going to break for a month-long recess from May 4 to June 4, according to the House calendar,” he said.

The ODM said the delay to make public the outcome of the handshake committee’s progress was tactical to insulate the talks from interference.

“There are too many saboteurs, including those who were a bit apprehensive and those who were very excited. This has to be managed and the lawyers are managing it until the time to announce those details is ripe,” he opined.

Uhuru and Raila Odinga are likely to unveil a road map of their unity pact during this year’s State of the Nation address.

It is during the address that Uhuru would unpack the contents of the dialogue that has been going on for a month now.

Nairobi Senator and Deputy Majority Whip Johnson Sakaja – a close ally of Uhuru – affirmed that the President is likely to make public the committee deliberations during the State of the Nation address.

President Uhuru Kenyatta has also  set the record straight on what his peace agreement with  Raila was all about, amid confusion and intense debate on what it actually entailed. The president unequivocally stated his handshake with the former prime minister had nothing to do with the raging 2022 politics and was about bringing Kenyans together.
