  • Deputy President William Ruto secretly met ODM Deputy Party Leader and Kakamega Governor Wycliffe Oparanya at the Olare Motorogi Conservancy on Thursday, April 8.

    The DP was accompanied by former Agriculture CS Mwangi Kiunjuri and his former Sports counterpart Rashid Echesa.

    Governor Oparanya hinted that the DP wanted them to form an alliance, predicting that both United Democratic Party (UDA) and ODM could work together in the future.

    “It was a chance meeting. Being a politician, the DP asked if we can work together and I told him that such a decision had to be made by the party,” Oparanya told Nation.

    On his part, Echesa alleged that members of the UDA party were holding a meeting when they were joined by Oparanya.

    Recently, the Kakamega governor made remarks that seemed to be contradicting those of his party leader Raila Odinga. He had wanted the BBI referendum pushed to next year so that available resources could be used to deal with Covid-19.

    “If there is no money at the National Treasury, there is no need of pushing to have the referendum this year. We should plan to hold the referendum next year when our economy has stabilised and Covid-19 contained,” he said.

    The handshake between President Uhuru Kenyatta and Odinga has in recent days been put to test with the latter’s allies suggesting that the BBI secretariat offices had been closed and Interior PS Karanja Kibicho allegedly threatened the unity of the handshake.

    However, a night meeting between the handshake duo affirmed that the referendum was still on.
