The Tuesday 18th by-elections held in different parts of the country have sparked a series of reactions which have led to various debates on different platforms.
The Tuesday polls have opened up a debate on the famous March 2018 Handshake between Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party leader Raila Odinga and President Uhuru Kenyatta.
Raila has stated that the peaceful co-existance that has existed in Kenya since the Handshake is being taken for granted by a few rogue elements who want to confuse and erode the Handshake which brought fourth a number of liberties.
"The peaceful co-existence post-2018 must NOT be taken for granted by some rogue elements wanting to confuse the HANDSHAKE for an excuse to ERODE our hard-earned liberties!This must STOP!" Raila said.
The Former Prime Minister has added that the events witnessed in the by-elections in Bonchari and Juja depict an abuse of police powers and an arrogant display of impunity by a few overzealous and bellicose government functionaries.
