A female politician based in Gusii region has defended the historic handshake between President Uhuru Kenyatta and NASA leader Raila Odinga. 

Rachael Otundo condemned a section of politicians, more particularly DP Ruto's close allies to stop feeling bad because of the unity between the two top leaders. 

"Raila, Uhuru united for the sake of curbing fights among Kenyans. I'm challenging politicians to embrace unity and come out to support the handshake which has seen the country moving forward," she noted.

The Gusii Governance Watch leader urged Uhuru to ignore Jubilee politicians pressuring him saying he was elected to serve the interests of the people and not few selfish individuals. 

"The Head of State should work closely with opposition for the sake of bringing development close to people across the country," she added.

She appealed to Gusii elected leaders to be development champions and shun divisive politics. 

"Politics based on political parties will hinder development. I'm appealing to leaders from the Gusii community to be at the frontline preaching peace and championing for development to boost the lives of people," said Rachael.
