Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) leader Raila Odinga will continue with his opposition leadership role even after the ongoing happenings, Nandi senator Samson Cherargei has announced.
Ruto has since yesterday been on a tour of Raila's Luo Nyanza backyard, raising suspicions of a possible truce between him and President William Ruto, with whom they are political enemies.
But Cherargei has held that Raila will not get anything even after the tour and will remain in the opposition, maintaining that it in no way means that any sort of truce is on its way between the two.
"Ruto shall not leave any part of Kenya in terms of unity and development regardless of their political affiliations/voting. This does not anyway mean a handshake but the opposition shall continue playing their rightful place. Maturity in democracy!" the leader, a close ally of Ruto, said on Saturday.
Ruto has received a warm welcome in the lakeside region, something that would not have happened before, with reports indicating that Raila met his area allies earlier and told them to receive him.
Cherargei now echoes what both Ruto and his deputy Rigathi Gachagua have announced since yesterday, that the government has no favourites and will not leave any part of the country behind.
They have held that even Nyanza, which totally rejected Ruto in last year's general election and voted almost to a man for Raila, will enjoy the goodies the government will be dishing out.
“I want to assure you that together with President William Ruto, we are committed to serving all Kenyans and this can be demonstrated by the number of leaders including a CS and a PS from Nyanza region who are presently serving in our government,” Gachagua said in Homabay yesterday.
