It is a significant decision that former President Uhuru Kenyatta has made, and that is to back former Prime Minister Raila Odinga in the elections that have just been completed. During the final year of his presidency, Uhuru demoted his deputy, William Ruto, and on occasion made him look foolish in front of the people.
In spite of this, Ruto was successful in his bid for the presidency and is presently serving in that capacity. Since he was elected president, numerous politicians, including his deputy Rigathi Gachagua, have called for Ruto and Uhuru to come to terms with one another and reconcile their differences.
However, the most recent attempt to bring the two leaders together has been met with resistance from both Camp Ruto and Camp Uhuru.
Jibril Kagomba, a member of parliament for Gatundu South, claims that the citizens of the Central Region have acknowledged DP Gachagua as the new political king.
The leader also pointed out that the majority of individuals advocating for reconciliation were actually Uhuru supporters, who had spent the majority of their campaign attacking the president.
"Those who have been striving for this reconciliation have Uhuru's apologies on their shoulders. They ignored us during the campaign when we predicted that Azimio would not win; therefore, there is no reason to pay attention to them at this point. The Elders have not begun their discussion as of yet."
