Just a day after the political wing of the United Democratic Alliance party made it clear that there’s absolutely no arrangement between the Kenya Kwanza Alliance and the Azimio La Umoja One Kenya Alliance Coalition Party, the latest statement from the party’s secretariat has now made the situation more complicated.
The ruling party’s Secretary General Veronica Maina was speaking while making an appearance on K24 in an interview that was hosted by the station’s presenter Ankey Dorice. Alongside Veronica in the studio was prominent city lawyer Danstan Omari.
Omari said that what is feasible and preferable from Raila and Ruto is to create an environment where the opposition has a legal and conducive space to operate within, and not a Handshake. While in total agreement with this, Veronica said that as a matter of fact, the suitable name for the arrangement is “Wakenya Kwanza” since it seeks to find a way to put forward the needs of Kenyans.
Over the weekend, Siaya Governor James Orengo asked President William Ruto to work with Azimio leader Raila Odinga.
Orengo was speaking in Asembo during the homecoming ceremony of ICT CS Eliud Owalo.
“Mr President, I ask you, not in the spirit of the handshake, but in the spirit of togetherness. I urge you to sit together on the table of brotherhood with your brother Raila Amolo Odinga.”
The governor said that the elections are over and the country needs to be united moving forward.
He reminded the President of their time in the Opposition when he (Ruto) was relentless in defending Raila, alias Agwambo.
Orengo informed Ruto that Raila had spoken to him and welcomed him to his home county, Siaya.
He pointed out that the leaders in both the Opposition and the government had, at some point, worked together.
Orengo reiterated that the move, if taken, will ensure that the nation is not divided.
“For the good of Kenyans, I urge you that we should come together on the table of brotherhood to move together as a nation, so that we don’t divide people.”
