Reprieve For Raila As Ruto Agrees To Giving Powerful Seat To The Office Of The Official Opposition.

The president's party, the UDA, and the larger Kenya Kwanza side of politics have agreed to support efforts to create a stronger and more active opposition because of the need for a government that is committed to providing better services to the populace and an active opposition to check many government policies and practices.

According to the Raila-led Azimio movements, the office of the official leader of opposition needs to be acknowledged and not only acknowledged but also anchored in the Kenyan system of government. Additionally, they have pushed for it to be given a slight boost in power.

The Daily Nation also reported that there doesn't appear to be any opposition to the matter because the UDA, the country's ruling party, is now on board with it and would support Azimio's proposal if it were to come before the house floor. If it does, Raila could be the first to benefit from the adjustment and receive a respite.

The same question and issue, however, had been raised by President Ruto when he was the Jubilee party's deputy during a discussion of their inclusivity agenda on the Uhuru and Raila-led Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) at bomas and was quickly rebuked by the men who are pushing for the same.
