Tuesday November 19, 2019 - Kitutu Chache South MP, Richard Onyonka, has lashed out at leaders opposed to the handshake between President Uhuru Kenyatta and ODM leader, Raila Odinga.
Speaking during an interview yesterday, Onyonka said that the African Union Special Envoy is not hungry for power contrary to people’s perceptions, especially Deputy President William Ruto and his allies.
He rubbished speculations that Raila wants to use the handshake to rise to power come 2022.
"Raila is not hungry for power contrary to what people think.”
“Raila has made Kenyans ask questions and look at what we can change," he said.
Onyonka also said that there is need for reforms in Kenya's leadership and other African countries.
He argued that most of these nations are yet to achieve their goals because of the loopholes in the structure of governance.
The legislator affirmed that Raila has good plans for Kenyans, adding that he stood with Uhuru for the sake of peace and economic empowerment of the people.
Onyonka warned leaders opposed to the handshake against peddling lies about the opposition leader.
"There is need to rethink and reinvent our political systems in Africa," he said.
Sentiments by the lawmaker come after Uhuru said he is not working on forming an alliance with Raila before 2022.
