Jubilee rebel MP Joshua Kutuny on Thursday held a meeting with Raila Odinga at Capitol Hill in Nairobi, hours after leaving China where he had attended a Jubilee party trip.
Last week, Kutuny hosted Mr Odinga at Elgeyo-Marakwet County during the retirement of his mother-in-law Ruth Kiptoo, a meeting that sent signals in North Rift.
On Thursday, Kutuny, a fierce defender of maize farmers, returned to Capitol Hill with a team of Strategic Ford Reserve Trust Fund team under the leadership of Noah Wekesa.
"Received a briefing from officials of the Strategic Food Reserve Trustee Fund on the food situation in the country with a particular reference to Maize. The officials were accompanied by a section of MPs from Maize producing regions in our country," Odinga said.
Mr Kutuny is a key proponent of handshake between President Uhuru Kenyatta and Raila Odinga. He has often accused Deputy President William Ruto of scuttling the unity.
At Marakwet West last week, Kutuny hailed Mr Odinga, adding that those against the handshake were the real enemies of peace. He said Raila could not be ignored in government.
“He saw the country as bigger than his personal political ambition and entered a pact with the President, which calmed political tension. Those opposed to the handshake are enemies of peace,” said Mr Kutuny, who claimed he helped broker the deal.
“You cannot afford to ignore Raila by eating while he is outside," he added is his local dialect.
