"Ruto's Entry To Nyanza Doesn't Mean Handshake But Raila Will Continue With His Role" Cherargei Says

President William Ruto yesterday made a grand entry into Azimio la Umoja One Kenya leader Raila Odinga’s Nyanza backyard, commissioning Sh3.2 billion projects.

He began by establishing inexpensive houses in the county of Homabay.

They said the government has lined up several projects for the region. “Now that campaigns and politics are behind us, I am ready to work with your leaders. It’s time to develop the country,” the President said.

Ruto has initiated some development projects which are aimed at opening up the region economically and improving the living standards of the residents.

Politicians, however, are now viewing the visit from a variety of perspectives. Some believe that the president is using it to entice Raila Odinga and other Nyanza leaders to shake hands with him.

Now, according to our source, Senator Samson Cherargei of Nandi, improving Nyanza does not entail shaking hands with the opposition, according to President William Ruto.

Cherargei said in a statement on Saturday that the opposition would keep up its scrutiny of the government duties."Ruto shall not leave any part of Kenya in terms of unity and development regardless of their political affiliations/voting. This does not anyway mean a handshake but the opposition shall continue playing their rightful place. Maturity in democracy!" he said.

His sentiments come after President William Ruto and his Deputy Rigathi Gachagua got a warm reception from residents and leaders in the region.
