NASA principal Raila Odinga at the University of Cambridge on Tuesday expressed that his handshake with President Uhuru Kenyatta was put under threat from what he termed as “selfish politicians.”
Raila made the sentiments while addressing the University of Cambridge in the UK where he gave a speech on the unification process that he has allied alongside President Uhuru Kenyatta.
The NASA chief stated that most of the aggregators of historical injustices have since joined up to destroy his handshake with President Kenyatta.
Raila Odinga was, however, hopeful that the unity deal would amount to something and serve as a good example for other African countries that have experienced divisive politics over the years.
“It is our hope that the handshake could inspire other African nations struggling with problems similar to those of Kenya.”
“There will be opposition and resistance because the issues we want to tackle go to the core of how Kenya has been run over the past five decades,” he stated.
President Uhuru Kenyatta has also in the past accused some undisclosed persons of attacking the unity deal.
Addressing mourners at the funeral of multi-party pioneer Kenneth Matiba, Uhuru requested anyone with problems concerning the handshake to speak it up directly with him or with Raila Odinga.
