Things move from bad to worse for the handshake duo of President Uhuru Kenyatta and ODM leader Raila Odinga after the Jubilee party tabled yet another new demand threatening the bromance between the two leaders and subsequent party relationships.
This is after details emerged of ODM leader Raila Odinga being in a dilemma on whether to owner new demands tabled by President Uhuru Kenyatta’s ruling Jubilee outfit on their handshake deal.
President Uhuru Kenyatta wants the two parties to sign a formal agreement detailing everything from their previous gentleman’s agreement.
The duo agreed to work together after the disagreement over the contentious 2007 general elections that resulted in tension in the Country.
The gentleman’s agreement has seen a number of projects unveiled under the Kenyatta regime with the BBI birthed in the process and relative peace being enjoyed in the country currently.
Reports indicate that the Jubilee party wants a formal agreement after the Odinga led party had tabled a demand to be handed the position of the Nairobi County Deputy Governor.
The Odinga led party tabled the demand after they played part in the former Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko ouster, which led to Kananu ascending to the position currently in an acting capacity.
ODM party refused to enter into a deal with the ruling outfit in June 2020, after Isaac Ruto’s Chama Cha Mashinani and Kalonzo Musyoka’s Wiper Democratic Party had entered into a pact with them.
Yesterday Raila led a team of ODM leaders in a closed-door crisis meeting to discuss the new demands tabled by the Kenyatta led party.
“We don’t need to have a formal agreement with Jubilee. All we need is to trust each other,” ODM Chairman John Mbadi said, later on.
