Over the few days, President William Ruto and Opposition leader Raila Odinga’s political dalliance has left many speculating that something might be cooking between the two leaders.
The two nemeses shared a podium during the funeral of Mukami Kimathi in Nyandarua County on Saturday and in what signals a new dawn, they flew straight to Kasarani stadium to witness the finals of the Kipkeino Classic.
On Sunday, the two former allies turned bitter foes were seen together during a match between Gor Mahia and AFC Leopards at Nyayo Stadium.
However, speaking from State House on Sunday evening, the Head of State put to rest rumors that he had met Raila before he called off anti-government protests claiming that he only met the former Premier on Saturday in Nyandarua, for the first time in many months.
They were once close allies during the 2007 elections under ODM’s Pentagon but later fell out and have never worked together ever since, and have been harsh critics of each other with their close allies digging at each at every opportunity.
These latest moves have, however, sent tongues wagging about their real intentions even as they signal the thawing of their ties.
Do you think the three meetings in a span of two days is a signal that the two leaders might be ready to bury the hatchet?
