VIDEO: Moses Wetang’ula Calls For Ruto, Raila ‘Handshake’

Ford Kenya leader Moses Wetang’ula has urged Azimio presidential candidate Raila Odinga to shake hands with president-elect William Ruto for the sake of peace.

In a video seen by Star on Friday, Wetangula said the purpose of the handshake will not be to share government but only to ensure peace prevails.

“We want to advise our brother Raila Odinga, this is not the first time you have not won an election, this is in fact the fifth time. Accept that things happened the way they did shake hands with us, not to share government but to bring peace in the country,” Wetangula said.

Wetangula said if that happens, it will help in moving the country forward instead of dwelling on one matter for a long.

He however said Raila will forever be remembered for the important roles he has played in this country.

“We will give Raila his respect as a former prime minister, as a man who has walked length and breadth of our country playing politics and in life, it can be so near and yet so far. Unfortunately for you my brother,  it has been so near yet so far,” Wetangula said.

His statement comes after Raila said he will go to the Supreme Court of Kenya to challenge the presidential results.

“Let no one take the law into their own hands. We are pursuing constitutional and lawful channels to invalidate Chebukati’s illegal and unconstitutional pronouncement. We are certain that justice will prevail,” Raila said.

Raila came second after William Ruto in results announced on Monday by IEBC Chairman Wafula Chebukati.

His legal team is exploring seven crucial grounds to overturn Ruto’s win at the Supreme Court.

The lawyers have been meeting in Nairobi’s Lavington area to beat next week’s Monday 2 pm deadline for filing of a presidential petition.
