Embakasi East Member of Parliament Babu Owino has now come out to caution those attacking President Uhuru Kenyatta. 

In a long message posted on his official Facebook page, the vocal legislator attacked some leaders who are against the unity between the Head of State and Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) leader Raila Odinga after the famous handshake. 

Owino said that Uhuru and Raila have been opponents for years, and their unity is for the better of Kenya. 

“My attention is drawn to the recent utterances by a section of leaders apparently condemning President Kenyatta for his new style of engaging with leaders from across the country. For the past seven odd years, President Kenyatta and my Party Leader have been at political loggerheads. However, their mutual commitment to seeing a better Kenya inspired their Handshake. Let it be thus known that what God has brought together, no man can put asunder!” reads part of Babu Owino message

The MP further reminded leaders opposing the Uhuru-Raila unity that it was ordained from God for the better of Kenyans. He asked those opposed to it to state whose interests they are acting upon. 

For developments in the whole of the country, Babu Owino asked leaders attacking President Uhuru and Raila Odinga to give them time to deliver.

“I would like to take this opportunity to encourage my colleagues to focus on their mandate and give the President and H. E Raila Odinga space to deliver,” he said.
