The political handshake between President Uhuru Kenyatta and opposition leader Raila Odinga brought the two leaders very close. It was a replica of how their fathers, Mzee Jomo Kenyatta and Jaramogi Oginga Odinga, were once friends
When the two were friends, the members of the Kenyatta family and the Odinga family were very close. This was confessed by Raila's sister, Ruth Odinga. In a previous interview with The Standard Newspaper, former Kisumu Deputy Governor Ruth Odinga mentioned how close she was to Uhuru Kenyatta during their childhood.
Ruth Odinga said that they first met young Uhuru Kenyatta when Jomo Kenyatta visited Jaramogi in Kisumu and have been friends ever since despite different political ideologies. Their friendship grew stronger while they were in high school, where Ruth Odinga was in high school in Kenya while Uhuru Kenyatta was at St Mary's, where they could meet at many school functions.
Ruth Odinga mentioned that she knew many lovers of Uhuru Kenyatta who had been educated at Kenya High, so Ruth Odinga even introduced Uhuru Kenyatta to some girls that Uhuru loved but was afraid to approach her.
Friendship is a gold ,do you have real friends whom you can keep for long period?
