There were uncertainty and uproar in ODM party over what was alleged to be a betrayal by President Uhuru Kenyatta. On Saturday, Siaya Senator James Orengo and his Riareda counterpart Otiende Amolo raised the political controversies surrounding the handshake.

And on Sunday the ODM had summoned its supporters for a declaration meeting in Kamukunji grounds in Kibra, Nairobi. It is with less doubt that the meeting was meant for protest against the scheme to undermine Raila's Presidency.

However, it's reported that Raila Odinga cancelled the much-publicised rally at the last minute amid efforts by President Uhuru Kenyatta. As established by the Standard, President Uhuru reached out to the ODM leader hours after it became noisy.

ODM had threatened to bolt out of the handshake following speculations that government officials surrounding the President were allegedly trying to pin down Raila's Presidency by meddling with the BBI.

The publication further reveals that the Makadara Member of Parliament, Hon George Aladwa conveyed Raila's message after failing to show up at the rally.

“I have a special message from Raila…. because he was supposed to be here today and we were expecting him,” the MP is quoted.
