During a church service in Roysambu on March 12, Nairobi Governor Johnson Sakaja accused President William Ruto of being surrounded by individuals who do not promote unity, with some of his allies urging him to maintain a hard stand towards the opposition.
Despite acknowledging that nobody wants a handshake, Sakaja emphasized the importance of hearing the concerns of all leaders, adding that it was time to make tough decisions for the country’s prosperity.
The Governor also promised entrepreneurs in Nairobi that there would be peace and stability during the mass action scheduled for March 20.
However, Sakaja agreed with Ruto that the government needed more time to fulfill its promises to Kenyans.
Meanwhile, Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua urged Ruto not to enter into any handshake deals that could ruin his regime, but he stressed that the final decision rested with the President.
