I do not believe in handshake stories- Ruto dismisses any chance of him working together with Raila

President elect Dr. William Ruto has dismissed any chance of him working together with Raila Odinga who has emerged second in the presidential election 2022. Talking after the declaration of the results by IEBC chairman Wafula Chebukati, Ruto said that he believes in the rule of law and looks forward to working with Raila but as the opposition leader.

Kenya has already witnessed two handshakes since she attained her independence with the first being between Raila Odinga and Mwai Kibaki to end the 2007/08 post election violence and the other being between Raila Odinga and Uhuru Kenyatta to end the 2017/18 National Resistance Movement.

“I never believed in the handshake stories. I believe in democracy. I believe in a government that has checks and balances. When you have a government that does not have the opposition, you have the very high risk of having a government that is not accountable, precisely what we have seen over the last four years." Ruto said in an interview published by Citizen TV.
