Hours after President Uhuru Kenyatta made a phone call to ODM leader Raila Odinga amid reports of fallout, National Assembly majority leader Amos Kimunya has talked.
Speaking to a local radio station, the Kipipiri Member of parliament talked about the recent concerns raised on the talks raised around the shortchanging of handshake member Raila Odinga.
The former finance minister said that the claims were unfounded and unfortunate, adding that they had been picked by some of the former premier’s allies.
Kimunya continued that the said group never believed the BBI was going anywhere, and as result was planting insinuations and smear tactics to paint ODM the wrong way.
“There are people who got shocked because they thought BBI would not go anywhere. They are now planting insinuations to rub ODM the wrong way. Unfortunately, some people within ODM may have swallowed the bait,” he stated.
This is after Siaya senator James Orengo and Rarieda legislator Otiende Amollo over the weekend talked on the alleged plot to frustrate the handshake.
‘’I want to warn some top civil servants paid by taxpayers’ money to desist from meddling in the country’s political leadership,’’ Orengo stated.
The two leaders are alleged to have had Odinga’s blessings before proceeding to make the new developments public.
Following new developments, DP Ruto allies have reacted to it in different ways with nominated Senator Milicent Omanga stating that the betrayal was imminent.
‘’All along, I knew the handshake was founded on quicksand. I’m therefore surprised that some of us are surprised that it’s coming down like a house of cards. Let’s enjoy the spectacle,’’ Nominated Senator Milicent Omanga said.
Former jubilee party deputy secretary-general Caleb Kositany was not left behind, with the Soy legislator throwing a jibe at the ODM.
“Do not take us back to the battle streets. If you feel that something has not gone right, do not mourn more than the Bereaved,” said Kositany who appeared to mock the ODM brigade.
“Do not feel that you have been betrayed by Jubilee more than us who voted for Jubilee, ” added Kositany.
