Luo Nyanza is currently growing excited regarding the closeness between the region's kingpin Raila Odinga and President Uhuru Kenyatta.

To most people from the region, this could be the region's ultimate chance to offer the nation a president, judging by the closeness between the two which to many might result in a coalition.

But the region has for long endured political betrayals from Presidents hailing from Mount Kenya region, and its leaders, ironically all from Raila's family, have suffered the same.

It began in 1966 when founding father Jomo Kenyatta parted ways with founding Vice President Jaramogi Oginga and in 2007 when retired President Mwai Kibaki betrayed Raila.

And though the region seems to have found a new friend in the name of Uhuru and even accorded him a historical welcome in Kisumu and Siaya in December last year, it is obviously keenly watching him.

In the instance that Raila comes out complaining that the latter dishonoured any of the agreements that formed their truce, then it could mark the end of Nyanza-Mount Kenya common political interests in the future.

This could also fuel the political suspicion that has always existed between the two ethnic groupings which might negatively affect the national unity and cohesion push.

It will also be hard for Luo and Nyanza leaders to unite in the future, Nyanza politicians fearing a possible betrayal at the end of it.
