SUMMARY

The handshake, however, has done more harm than good to Deputy President William Ruto

The handshake has also left many Kenyans in limbo on what lies in wait for DP William Ruto

As Kenya marks the first anniversary since the famous handshake between the two foes-turned-friends, President Uhuru Kenyatta and former Prime Minister Raila Odinga, a myriad of questions have continued to arise.

Is there a concealed agenda behind the political ceasefire between the duo? 

Since the March 9, 2018, handshake at Harambee House, the duo have buried their political differences and merged to promote peace, security and economic development in the country. 


The handshake, however, has done more harm than good to Deputy President William Ruto who has since then felt a stranger in the Jubilee government. 

On the same note, political leaders allied to the former premier say that the truce is a God sent gift that will answer Raila's presidential bid.

According to them, the new ‘romance’ between the President and the NASA leader will go a long way in catapulting ‘Baba’ to the top seat/

The handshake has also left many Kenyans in limbo on what lies in wait for DP William Ruto.

The armistice has ironically fanned new suspicion within the ruling Jubilee party.

Some leaders allied to Ruto have read mischief in the duo's camaraderie with many saying their handshake was meant to oust Ruto from the 2022 Presidential seat.
