Yesterday former Prime minister and Opposition Leader Raila Odinga and Kirinyaga governor Ann Waiguru finally had their handshake moment. This was quite unexpected to many Kenyans who for a long time watched the two disagree openly.

Raila was among the very first people to link Waiguru to the NYS scandal back in 2015 when she was the National Youth Service Cabinet secretary.
