What CS Owalo & Orengo Challenged Ruto To Do With Raila Odinga During His Tour In Nyanza

On the final day of the Head of State's trip of the Nyanza area, President William Ruto and opposition leader Raila Odinga made calls for unity.

While pledging to collaborate with political rivals, President Ruto made a call for an end to animosity and tribalism in order to realize a united country.

In addition, he pledged to make sure that all regions receive equal development from the government, regardless of how they participated in the tight 2016 presidential election.

Siaya Governor James Orengo started the cries for unity by urging President Ruto to sit next to Mr. Odinga in order to bring the nation together.

"I want you and your brother, Raila Odinga, to sit together. Now that the elections are done, the country must move forward as a unity" Mr. Orengo stated.

While Kenyans are still waiting for services to be provided, the governor of Siaya criticized some "irresponsible leaders" of planning to start talking about 2027.

Following Mr. Orengo's example, Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua gave Mr. Odinga's followers the reassurance that the Kenya Kwanza administration will treat the ODM leader with the deference that a senior statesman requires.

He also gave the Luo community members his word that they wouldn't be forgotten even though they didn't support the Kenya Kwanza administration.

"Your people have been appointed by President Ruto to important posts, and there will be many more in the future. As we approach the general election in 2027, let's establish a close working relationship, he remarked.

Musalia Mudavadi, the prime cabinet secretary, added that it is the president's duty to treat all Kenyans equitably throughout the nation.

On the other hand, President Ruto was urged to be accepted as the only leader of the nation by Speaker of the National Assembly Moses Wetang'ula.

"To ensure a united nation, President Ruto needs to be supported since the crown has been placed on his head. Let's go together," Mr. Wetang'ula suggested.
