The new working relationship between President Uhuru Kenyatta and Opposition leader Raila Odinga must be handled in a way not divide the Jubilee Party.
Kajiado Governor, Joseph Ole Lenku, claimed on Sunday the handshake was meant to fast-track development especially the implementation of the Big Four Agenda but that it is now “counter-productive”.
“The anticipated gains of the political truce could be counter-productive if it leaves Jubilee Party broken into pieces. The truce should help deliver on development and not disenfranchise some players in the Jubilee party,” claimed Lenku.
He said if Jubilee splits in the middle, the overall impact of the handshake would be diluted. “We need to fully support the President on development because that is the direction he has clearly given us,” added Lenku.
He was speaking during a Sunday Service at Dominion Chapel Ministries in Kiserian, Kajiado West when he said the direction the handshake is taking is not “pleasant”.
The Church’s Presiding Bishop Peter Mankura gave a sermon on forgiveness.
The service was also attended by Matapato South MCA, Hosea Toshi, who has been recovering from a grisly road accident early in the year.
The governor, thereafter, participated in a fundraiser in support of expanding the church.
