In an address delivered from Karen while being hosted live on Royal Media Service's Inooro FM today, the former Prime Minister Raila Odinga had a number of issues to talk about among them being the birth of handshake, the state of the nation, the Building Bridges Initiative and corruption.

One particular issue on which he set the record straight is that the allegations that the opposition had joined government and wasn't doing its job like how it used to do prior to March 9th 2018.

The former PM affirmed that "we are still in the opposition and are doing our oversight role like how we used to do but this time in a better way."

That he's never gone silent whenever there are suspicious activities going on in the Government especially those in which public resources are likely to be lost just like how he used to do in the past.

He also revealed that thanks to the handshake, he can directly report dubious activities to the president himself instead of taking to the press like how he used to do in the past.

"Whenever I suspected that there was graft going on in the past, I used to do my own investigations then call the press to reveal what's happening.

After handshake, I can now pick my phone and directly call President Uhuru to inform him whenever I suspect something.

On the same note, I normally inform my parliamentarians to check into the issue like how I did in the Arror and Kimwarer dam scandals.

I even called the president and revealed to him about Itare dam and as you know action was taken with the project being stopped," he said.
