Dr. Willy Mutunga, former Chief Justice of Kenya, has finally had a handshake with his long-time rival, Kalonzo Musyoka. The handshake comes almost eight years after the 2013 Supreme Court ruling that denied the Coalition for Reforms and Democracy (CORD) the presidency. Mutunga took to social media to share a photo of the handshake, with a caption that read in Kiswahili which loosely translates to: this handshake is for Senior Counsels.
The handshake between Mutunga and Musyoka has been seen as a symbol of reconciliation between the two political heavyweights, who have been at loggerheads for years. The 2013 Supreme Court ruling was a significant blow to CORD's presidential ambitions, and since then, the relationship between Mutunga and Musyoka has been strained.
Mutunga's post also thanked Musyoka for his speech in response to his own on the state of the planet. This gesture of gratitude is an indication that Mutunga is keen on fostering a positive relationship with his rival, despite their past differences.
The handshake between Mutunga and Musyoka is also significant, as it comes at a time when the country is grappling with political divisions and tensions. The two leaders coming together is a sign that even amid political differences, it is possible to find common ground and work toward a shared goal.
The handshake is also a reminder of the power of forgiveness and reconciliation. Despite their past differences, Mutunga and Musyoka have shown that it is possible to put the past behind them and move forward. This is a crucial message for the country, which has a history of political violence and ethnic tensions.
