Trouble looming? DP Ruto's call to Uhuru Kenyatta may spark unending conflict in the government ahead of 2022. Today Ruto bow down to the pressure while addressing delegates at his Karen residence to accept reconciliation with the president.
DP Ruto bows down to public pressure and calls from religious leaders seeking handshake between the two readers to shape Uhuru's legacy before retirement.
Handshake brother, and father of BBI - which parted ways between Ruto and Uhuru, Raila Odinga is in dilemma following Ruto's call to president wanting to settle their political differences.
What does it mean to Raila Odinga
If there is one person against Uhuru and Ruto reconciliation is former prime minister Raila Odinga; the return of Ruto will be a blow to the ODM party leader.
A good relationship between the two Jubilee Party leaders would mean the end of the handshake era, and the rebirth of the 'Yangu Kumi, Ruto kumi' political narrative in the country.
Raila is working inside handshake agreement - which is concisely assumed to be making him president 2022, and introduction of DP Ruto would spoil all plans hence conflict from Raila's camp.
Will Ruto reconcile with Uhuru?
Uhuru and Ruto reconciliation will be determined by Raila's camp; the biggest card player in the 2022 general election is the former prime minister.
Uhuru Kenyatta has to seek advice from the ODM party leader before declaring his reconciliation with his deputy president; however, it is unlikely Raila to accept the incident happen.
Ruto must play it safe; it is very unlikely to get back to Uhuru Kenyatta considering that he has fetched a good number of followers outside government.
Ruto's reconciliation with Uhuru will create more trouble than goodies; tangatanga sided MPs and MCAs who have been castigating the government must collide with Uhuru's right-hand men.
However, with Uhuru's camp yet to respond to DP Ruto calls, Kenyan is keeping an eye on the unfolding of the politics before 2022.
