Another Imminent Handshake That Could Significantly Shift Political Power Ahead of August 9th

The general elections, scheduled for August 9th, are less than three months away. Kenyans are counting down the days till a new political generation takes government for another five years.

After storming out of Azimio, Wiper party leader Stephen Kalonzo Musyoka tossed his hat into the ring, the presidential contest has suddenly become a three-horse race.

Despite the fact that Raila and Ruto are fierce rivals, Kalonzo's entry may jeopardize their prospects of winning the election outright, forcing a runoff.

While Kenyans debate what will happen on August 9th, new information has surfaced that might drastically alter the political landscape.

Kalonzo's long-time buddy, Makueni MP Dan Maanzo, argues that all is not lost between his boss and Raila Odinga. Before the elections, the shrill Legislature predicted that the two would reconcile.

As a result of their recent handshake with Kalonzo, this possible handshake could be a watershed moment in the forthcoming presidential election, giving Raila an advantage against Ruto.
