Deputy President (DP) William Ruto has accused opposition leader Raila Odinga of plotting to divide Jubilee Party through the handshake.
Mr Ruto claimed on Sunday that Mr Odinga is using his handshake with President Uhuru Kenyatta to bring “conmanship, confusion and hypocrisy”.
President Kenyatta and Mr Odinga shook hands on May 9 and announced that they will work together for the sake of national unity and development.
Mr Odinga, the leader of the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) has been termed a traitor by his supporters and some members of the National Super Alliance (Nasa) but he has asked them to trust him.
The DP alleged that the plot is to see him leave the party “the way they did way back when I was in ODM”.
“I was in ODM …that is where they started summoning me like what they are doing to [Malindi Member of Parliament Aisha] Jumwa and [Msambweni MP Suleiman] Dori.
They ensured that I left the party and even took me to court. That is what they want to bring in Jubilee but I want to tell them that will not happen,” he said.
