Opinion: Moments That Prove Politicians Are Not Enemies

For decades now, some people have held on to the belief that politicians are enemies and on the idea that they detest each other.

However, that isn't true. Yesterday during the 58th Mashujaa's day celebration, Kenya's top politicians made their way to the Wang'uru Stadium in Kirinyaga County in one peace.

The event was packed to capacity and in attendance was President Uhuru Kenyatta, his Deputy William Ruto, former Prime Minister Raila Odinga and former Vice President Musalia Mudavadi who are perceived to be on different political sides and are viewed as political enemies ahead of 2022 elections.

During their brief interactions, it was evident that they are not at all at loggerheads with each other and that whatever political differences they may have it does not affect their friendship in any way.

One of the key moments which proved that these politicians are just competitors and not actual is the moment when the President and his deputy exchanged greetings and soon afterwards they dived into a brief conversation. We could all witness the two of them laughing like nothing is amiss between them.

The President and his deputy have never met publicly for over a year now. The two political giants have been seen fighting politically and this has made their followers get the impression that might be are enemies.

As citizens, we should not make enemies with our friends and colleagues just because we are on different political sides. This will only affect us but not the politicians we are fighting for. Thank you for reading. Please share and comment on your thoughts in the section below.
