Reactions After Uhuru Finally Shakes Hands With Ruto Today

Deputy President William Ruto and President Uhuru Kenyatta have for the past years been having bad relationship and they have literally been avoiding each other both in public and private. Their differences became so open during the death of Mzee Mwai Kibaki where Ruto had arrived at the KICC to welcome President Uhuru Kenyatta to mark the public viewing of the body of Kibaki. In what most termed as unfortunate, President Uhuru avoided to shake DP Ruto's hands and surprisingly when he entered inside, he shook hands of the family of the late Kibaki.

The same reoccurred at Othaya during the burial of Kibaki when Uhuru yet again avoided Ruto's handshake. Today, while at the National Prayer Breakfast at Safari Park Hotel, things seems to have changed when Uhuru and his deputy shook hands. This new gesture has exited many who were not sure whether the two will ever shake hands following their messy fallout.

While reacting to this, Kenyans from all political divide has expressed their opinion with most saying that it was a sign of political maturity and a show of goodwill as the country gears towards the general elections. Below are some reactions:
