Jomvu MP Badi Twalib has asked leaders opposed to the historic handshake between President Uhuru Kenyatta and opposition Chief Raila Odinga to go slow.
Twalib said the handshake was important for the future of country and said those opposed to it are people hell-bent on pursuing divisive politics to the detriment of development.
He said the historic handshake will lead to unity between the diverse communities and development across the country.
“The handshake is for the benefit of all Kenyans and all right thinking Kenyans should support it,” he said, adding that it was a step forward for the country.
He said what was now important is for all Kenyans to support the unity process for it to make meaningful progress.
The legislature rubbished early 2022 general election politics saying that it is likely to burry development agenda.
According to the Jomvu MP, it was too early for political leaders to discuss 2022 politics at the expense of development.
“Kenyans are not happy with what some of our colleagues are currently doing, barely eight month after last year’s general elections and we are on 2022 race already, it is a shame,” he noted.
He as however said that he will fully support the steps NASA leader Raila Odinga will take and appealed to fellow politicians to focus more on fulfilling their promised to their electorates.
