Despite the rather innocent explanation, there were heavy political undertones in the Kabarak “handshake”.
Mr Odinga was accompanied by close political allies including Vihiga Senator George Khaniri and Mvita MP Abdulswamad Sharrif Nassir.
Nassir was recently awarded the powerful position of Chairperson of the Pbublic Investments Committee while Khaniri has been in Odinga’s good books over his active role in the January 30th swearing in ceremony.
He has equally lauded IEBC Chairman Mr Wafula Chebukati for sending home Commission CEO Ezra Chiloba on a three month compulsory leave pending investigation into flouting procurement at the Commission.
Mr Musyoka, jetted out of the country Sunday evening to monitor the presidential election in the Eastern European Republic of Azerbaijan and he was leading the observer mission from Africa, under the umbrella of Centrist Democrat International (CDI).
