William Ruto has come to the rescue of the former prime minister Raila Odinga after President Kenyatta intervened for him to be given the constitutional mandate to discharge his opposition roles. Details indicate that Uhuru advised Ruto to do the same after Ruto sought his guidance on how to tame Raila Odinga whose age may not allow him again to vie in 2027 and beyond.

The President has instructed Kenya Keanza MPs to table a bill at the national assembly that will give the opposition a constitutional mandate to lead the opposition, and address parliament once a year, and the opposition leader receives cars and security from the government including salaries.

The move by President Ruto comes amid threats from Raila's side that they are determined to lead demonstrations across the country and make the country ungovernable. Ruto and Raila have been having talks through Uhuru and Ruto has decided to yield to Raila's demands.
