It is exactly two years since President Uhuru Kenyatta and his former rival Raila Odinga shook hands at the steps of Harambee House ushering an end to hostilities and heralding an era of peace and calm in the country.
The momentous event put a lid on the two leaders’ long-lasting vicious feud.
On March 9, 2018, Uhuru and Raila met with the intention to end the impasse that had followed the 2017 disputed presidential elections and the tension that came with it.
Since last year, particularly soon after the launch of the BBI report, the relationship between the President and his deputy William Ruto has been anything but cordial.
Claims of betrayal started to emerge from Ruto’s wing of the party.
Team Tangatanga, associated with Deputy President William Ruto has become very bold and overt in their opposition to Uhuru.
Observers anticipated these turn of events but the abruptness and rapidity of the deterioration came as a shocker.
However, on Saturday While addressing residents of Thika during the Azimio la Umoja held at Thika Stadium, ODM leader Raila Odinga finally exposed what Deputy President William Ruto did to President Uhuru Kenyatta that led to the handshake.
The former Premier minister alleged that DP William Ruto had held President Uhuru Kenyatta a hostage as he was not in a position to do anything forcing him to go for a handshake so as to come out of the bondage.
