ODM leader Raila Odinga’s recent handshake with Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru elicited mixed reactions from Kenyans.
The two were caught up in a serious fall out in 2015 after Raila directly linked her to the loss of Sh791 million at the National Youth Service (NYS) and demanded that she be held responsible further accusing President Uhuru of ‘shielding’ her.
She even resigned claiming Raila’s accusations had stressed her and that her doctor had recommended lighter duties and subsequently filed a defamation case against the Opposition chief.
Talking to Twitter, Waiguru dropped the defamation suit in the “spirit of national cohesion and reconciliation” and left the NYS matter to investigative agencies.
Information emerging is that the Waiguru-Raila truce was a Presidential directive and that Cabinet Secretary without portfolio Raphael Tuju and Jubilee Vice Chair David Murathe were tasked to organize the meeting.
Political pundits have tied the ceasefire to the 2022 succession politics.
Waiguru who has been fronted as a is possible running mate of Deputy President William could now be warming towards a possible team up with Raila.
A day after meeting Raila, Waiguru also met former Machakos Senator Johnstone Muthama and Siaya Senator James Orengo at Milimani Courts for the withdrawal of a defamation case she filed against Muthama and former Kakamega Senator Bonnie Khalwale for derogatorily associating her with the First Family.
