DP Ruto, Orengo, Mbadi and Junet Captured Sharing Some Light Moments in Parliament

In politics, there are no permanent friends or foes. This statement was clearly explained on Tuesday at the parliament buildings, during the state of the nation address by president Uhuru Kenyatta.

Moments before the president arrived in parliament, the deputy president was captured sharing some light moments with legislators who are believed to be his fierce rivals.

William Ruto was seen greeting the Senate minority leader, James Orengo, and also the National Assembly minority leader, John Mbadi. After the greetings the leaders went on to hold a brief talk and they could be seen laughing together.

The second in command proceeded to salute Suna East MP, Junet Mohammed, and again they were captured having some brief talk. The two leaders could be seen laugh as they held hands on each other.

This was an extraordinary experience to most Kenyans who thought that the leaders cannot share the same table. Orengo, Mbadi and Junet are all loyalists of ODM party which is led by the former prime minister, Raila Odinga.

Raila Odinga is expected to face William Ruto in the presidential race come 2022. The gesture by these leaders should serve as a major lesson to Kenyans, that politicians are not enemies.
