Raila, Ruto in first public meeting after days of sustained political hostility

- The two leaders met for the first time after weeks of hostility

- Ruto in the recent past publicly accused Raila of having a plot to take down the Jubilee party from the inside

- Raila had in turn fired back by claiming Ruto was a guilty party because of his public outbursts

- However, the two leaders managed to shelve their conspicuous feud during the burial of the late late Joseph Kamaru

ODM Party leader Raila Odinga on Thursday caught up with Deputy President William Ruto after weeks of hostility between the two leaders.

The two came together in somber circumstances as they attended the burial ceremony of legendary benga icon Joseph Kamaru who passed away on October 4 aged 79.

President Uhuru Kenyatta was also in attendance of the burial which was graced by hundreds who came to pay their final respects to the fallen legend.

Despite the main agenda being Kamaru’s decent sendoff, there was a brief spell of awkwardness as Raila made his way to Kaharati farm in Muthithi, Muranga County.

The former opposition leader passed greetings to several dignitaries in attendance including the president and DP Ruto.

While there has been no bad blood between Raila and Uhuru since March when they buried the hatchet using a handshake, it was particularly interesting to see the ODM boss shaking hands with the DP especially after what has been said between the two.

As TUKO.co.ke reported, Ruto has been very cautious with the Raila since the handshake and he has on several occassions suggested the ODM leader had an ulterior motive for shaking hands with the president.
