March 9, 2018, will go down in Kenya’s history books as one of the many defining moments when the country witnessed an unexpected event.
On this day, on the steps of Harambee House, the building that houses the President’s office along Harambee Avenue in Nairobi, President Uhuru Kenyatta and Raila Odinga shook hands after months of tension following a disputed presidential election that saw the Supreme Court order for a repeat of the same.
The symbolic event is a contrast to a few months prior when the two were firmly rooted on opposing sides of a hotly contested presidential race.
The now famous ‘handshake’ was a public declaration to cease all hostilities, and instead find common ground in the interest of moving the country forward economically, politically as well as socially.
Jubilee vice chairman and close confidant of president Uhuru is leading a ‘stop Ruto movement’ that seem to be gaining momentum each day.
