The Handshake - Where Does Kenya Stand in Opposition?

The March 9 handshake remains the principal highlight of Kenya’s post-election period. With the recent tour of President Uhuru Kenyatta and Deputy President William Ruto accompanied by Former Prime Minister Raila Odinga to Nyanza region - an opposition stronghold on the 13th December; the significant political developments still leave questions lingering among many Kenyans. As much as the handshake seeks to address nine mutual issues namely: ethnic antagonism, lack of a national ethos, inclusivity, devolution, divisive elections, security, corruption, shared prosperity and responsibility through the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI), there are still more underlying issues yet to be resolved.
