Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) Secretary-General Edwin Sifuna has finally spoken to allegations doing round social media platforms that the former Prime Minister Raila Odinga’s led ODM party is planning to end the handshake partnership between President Uhuru Kenyatta and their party leader.
Reports indicated that the ODM party is planning to end the famous handshake in 2018 that birthed Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) as the contentious report’s implementation process takes a fresh twist.
Now the new debate about the controversial report is believed to be due to Deputy President William Ruto’s bold stand that the document has to be amended before it is passed
Reports also indicated that the President and his deputy closed-door meeting on Wednesday 18 could have resulted in the postponement of the signatures collection exercise to steer referendum.
After the National Secretariat on BBI announced that the exercise has been postponed, a section of netizens took to the internet to express their reactions where it emerged that the ODM party is now ‘feeling cheated’ on the process to amend the 2010 constitution.
A post emerged alleging that ODM Secretary General Edwin Sifuna stated that the party is now feeling impatient with the head of state taking the internet by storm.
”We have every reason to believe Uhuru’s lack of concern and disinterest on BBI is because of his Deputy. The President needs to stop fearing what his Deputy thinks or feels and focus on his handshake partner. We are getting impatient with him,” read the now deemed fake report.
However, Sifuna has now come out to clear the air on the matter rubbishing the reports stating that the news is fake and is being spread by malicious people.
