With the handshake, is the power to put off criticism. As evidenced in the country today, the top Jubilee party leaders who were vocal and in the front line of criticizing the National Super Alliance leaders are now mute. This is the power of the effective handshake.

The Senate majority leader, Senator Murkomen, is as cool as water in the pot. Waiting for the decisions of his allies, politically, the vocal and top Nasa critic has been silent for the past few days. This is even after his fellow Rift Valley top fellow and Deputy President, William Ruto, has said no to the Constitutional changes.

Similarly, his National Assembly majority leader has also portrayed some dormancy. Having the favor to lead the eleventh and twelveth parliaments, Aden Duale is on a dilemma. Raila Odinga's humble decision of moving to meet President Uhuru Kenyatta is a headache. 

Either, the silence of President Uhuru Kenyatta on the matter concerning the referendum is the possible cause of many Jubilee party Members of Parliament. 

From his side, DP Ruto has already depicted his desperate feeling on the amendments anticipated and proposed by many top political leaders, including the Nasa and ODM party leader, Raila Odinga.

MP Moses Kuria cannot make it escape the dilemmatic silence. This makes politics a drama. The divisive opinions on carrying out a referendum or not is widening the political closeness, an unpromising condition in the political climate.
