For the past few days, speculations have been rife of a possible alliance between deputy president William Ruto and former prime minister Raila Odinga. A local daily last week noted that President Uhuru Kenyatta’s 2022 choice might force Raila and Ruto into a reunion. That is if he denies either of the two his endorsement. Lately, Amani National Congress (ANC) party leader Musalia Mudavadi has been floated as Uhuru’s most likely candidate for 2022.

In parliament, politicians allied to DP Ruto and those allied to Raila Odinga have ignited a hot debate following their recent bromance. This is according to the Star. The daily reports that members of parliament have been left in shock after former enemies turned friends.

The Ruto-allied lawmaker and the Raila-allied legislator who previously could not see eye to eye are now the best of friends and have since been hanging out together. They have been spotted enjoying tea in the parliament restaurant among other places.

Some MPs who have been keeping a close eye on the two were recently overheard asking themselves what could have brought together two former sworn enemies.

One of them commented, “Maybe their bosses are also planning to work together.”
