Samson Cherargei, the Nandi County Senator has stated that the US will not “in any way influence” President William Ruto’s government to reach a handshake agreement with Raila Odinga.
On Sunday, Cherargei referred to Odinga’s decision to travel the world in an effort to draw attention from abroad and damage the reputation of his nation as terrible.
Cherargei emphasized that the country is on a positive trajectory and debunked Azimio’s assertions that it is in a crisis.
“Despite the presence of Senator Coons – USA shall NOT in any way influence H.E Dr William Samoei Arap Ruto and Kenya kwanza administration into a handshake/nusu mkate with Tinga/Azimio-OKA. Period!” he affirmed.
The Azimio coalition’s efforts to open dialogue with the Ruto administration would not be met with ease, the Nandi Senator continued, warning them to brace themselves for a difficult road ahead.
“Azimio-OKA / Tinga walambe glucose safari bado ni mbali.” (Azimio-OKA should lick glucose as the journey is just beginning).
Prior to the start of bipartisan negotiations, Odinga spoke with US senator for Delaware Chris Coons on Sunday.
Coons, who came in the nation on Saturday, is recognized for negotiating the 2018 Handshake agreement between Odinga and former President Uhuru Kenyatta.
The bipartisan discussions team now has five members each that have been nominated by Azimio La Umoja and Kenya Kwanza.
