Embakasi East Member of Parliament Babu Owino and his Gatundu South counterpart are always known to be on each other’s neck politically often calling each other out on social media with contradicting political opinions.

Attending K24’s Ciru Muriuki’s birthday party, the two leaders surprised many as they wined and dined before emulating the famous handshake between President Uhuru Kenyatta and NASA leader Raila Odinga.

The leaders documented their handshake with photos and shared them with their followers on social media.


Among those who weighed in on the Babu Owino-Moses Kuria handshake was embattled lawyer Miguna Miguna. The lawyer called on the Embakasi East ODM MP to stop playing silly games with Kenyans insinuating that Babu’s move was political prostitution.
