Days after President William Ruto was given a warm welcome by Nyanza locals, it is now becoming clear that the gesture wasn't random but rather part of a premeditated event that would end with the former prime minister and the head of state shaking hands.
In a report by the Nation, political analyst Hon. Macharia Munene argued that Kenyans should now anticipate a handshake, either private or public, between Raila and Uhuru because doing so will shield Raila from being perceived as a leading opponent of development.
Additionally, Macharia informs Kenyans that despite the truce between Raila and Ruto perhaps improving Ruto's prospects of winning re-election, Ruto will have nothing to lose because Raila has no immediate plans to run for president.
According to sources in Mr. Odinga's camp, he has instructed local leaders to create detailed lists of the projects they want the federal government to carry out as part of his push for development in his strongholds.
