The meeting seem to have been interpreted by many as an attempt by the president to clip the wings of ODM leader Raila Odinga with unconfirmed reports that Uhuru is supporting the formation of a coast based Political Party.
And now, Central organization of trade unions secretary general Francis Atwoli has emerged to break his silence on the tense atmosphere that many kenyans now believe exits between the two handshake camps.
In a report by The Standard, Atwoli has come out to rubbish claims that president Uhuru Kenyatta is out to clip the wings of former prime minister politically.
He argues that the head of state does not have any plan to undermine the political authority of Raila Odinga saying he is fully training his eyes on the building bridges initiative.
“I don’t think Uhuru has any plan to undermine anybody, his focus now is on the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI). The problem we have is that there are people who want immediate results. Politics is not like that. It is like rainfall, when it pours, the water will find its on course,” he says.
Reports had also indicated that president Uhuru Kenyatta supports the one alliance between Kalonzo Musyoka, Moses Wetang'ula, Musalia Mudavadi and Gideon Moi with the alliance seemingly at loggerheads with Raila Odinga.
