President Ruto Forges a New Friendship With Raila 

Former Prime Minister Raila Odinga and President William Ruto have discussed their new friendship dynamics. Ruto hailed Odinga as a longtime ally.The President referred to Raila as “his person” while giving a tour of Mfangano Island in Homa Bay County, signaling a fresh understanding between the two.

He went on to say that his victory in the 2022 general election was advantageous to him, Raila supporters, and every other Kenyan, and that he would work with all politicians to make sure he left a lasting legacy. The president of state reminisced his political experience with Raila before their fallout following the 2007 General Election, much to the joy of the audience.

In the 2010 Grand Coalition Government led by the late President Mwai Kibaki, he allegedly lobbied for Raila to be chosen Prime Minister. “Who sought out that position for him in order for him to become a former prime minister? Is it not true that I, along with others, battled for it?

“I was a Raila person at the time. However, Raila has become my person ever since I was elected president. Is that problematic in any way? He declared.He allayed any worries that the Nyanza would be excluded from his development plan, however, by stating that all Kenyans will be regarded and served equally under his government.”

I want to assure the people of Nyanza that the government will look out for them just like it does for other Kenyans. No portion of Kenya will be treated differently based on its political allegiance.”We shall strive for all Kenyans because Kenya is one. Nobody in Kenya is in the opposition; opposition ends with the elections, he said.

The President spoke out against claims that  his  administration’s supporters own the  government  on Friday, October 6. In contrast, his deputy, Rigathi Gachagua, has  consistently asserted that the  aforementioned people are government  stockholders  and should be given top  attention.

In previous media appearances, the head of the opposition, Raila Odinga, also  criticized Gachagua, saying that those in positions of authority should work  to bring  people together rather than divide them.

Before Ruto visited Nyanza, Raila made it clear that he was not opposed to the  President visiting his home region and that all Kenyans deserved to have their  needs met by the current administration. He did, however, believe that the trips shouldn’t be utilized as a means of pressuring  the area to join Kenya Kwanza.

“I don’t want to predict how these National Dialogue Committee discussions will turn up. Let’s wait and see,” the ODM leader said in a KTN News interview on October 4th. Gachagua, who had worked as Uhuru Kenyatta’s personal assistant, has been attempting to make peace with him as well.

Additionally, the DP urged his men to stop attacking the President as he worked to bring the nation together. After the start of the bipartisan talks intended to bring Ruto, Raila, and Gachagua together, political experts claim that the three appear to be reading from the same script.

Uhuru Kenyatta has not yet responded to Gachagua’s request for a cease-fire to end their conflict, though. In his speech on Saturday, embattled Jubilee Secretary-General Jeremiah Kioni pleaded with Gachagua to refrain from discussing Uhuru  and focus instead on other issues. He claimed they had ingested the Jubilee Party, right? Let them go and leave the party alone,” said Kioni.
