Ruto hints at Working with Raila

Ruto hints at Working with Raila


President William Ruto hinted at offering former Prime Minister Raila Odinga a role in his government if he fronts himself to undertake state duties. 

Speaking on Monday, the president noted that he would be willing to give the Azimio la Umoja Presidential candidate a role to play in his government if it serves the best interest of the country and aligns with his development agenda.

"When Raila Odinga decides to retire, and I think there are roles he can play as a Kenyan leader, he can support the country in other initiatives may be in the Great Lakes Region, he can work with us as an elder statesman, it is not for me to choose.

"It is a decision to be made by Kenyans. As president, I would deploy all the resources that we have for the good of the country and If Raila Odinga came by, I would find something for him to do but not in the handshake arrangement," Ruto told BBC News Africa.

 The president however reiterated that handshake would undermine the opposition's role in his government.

"The handshake arrangement was the biggest fraud on the people of Kenya. It should not have happened. Once you compromise the opposition you are headed in the wrong direction, many wrong things will happen as it did," he added.
