Wiper Senator Tells Off Ruto Ally Over His Comments Concerning Raila & His Handshake With Uhuru

Wiper Movement party nominated Senator Sylvia Kasanga on Tuesday December 7 hit out at Kimilili MP Didmus Barasa over his remarks during an interview with K24 TV where both of them were part of the panel.

Barasa who is a close ally of the DP from Western Region claimed that the former Prime Minister is to blame for the chaos and the violence that took place after the 2017 presidential election result were announced where President Uhuru Kenyatta and his Deputy President William Ruto were declared the winners.

"In 2017 there was a resurgence of violence in the country and lives were lost, Raila Odinga made a bold move to Harambee house and engaged in a handshake with Uhuru Kenyatta and suddenly there was peace in the country, what does that tell you? It tells you that Raila and violence are inseparable," posed Barasa.

This did not sit well with Kasanga who stated that Barasa's sentiments were unfortunate and that every Kenyan took pride in the peace that emanated from the handshake.

"The remarks he has made about Raila are careless. I have to call you out on that. You are hurting many Kenyans by saying so. The act of Honorable Raila Odinga going to shake hands with the President was actually an act of statesmanship, it is not easy to see an African leader doing what Raila did," she said.
