Raila had said that he will be ready for a Handshake with Ruto whether he wins or loses the Tuesday’s elections.
Deputy President William Ruto has pledged to have talks with his opponent Raila Odinga after the August 9 elections.
Speaking at Nyayo Stadium where he held his last rally ahead of the August 9 elections, Ruto said he is ready to discuss the role Raila will play as he serve in the opposition.
The DP dismissed a possibility of having the type of Handshake Raila had with President Uhuru Kenyatta saying there is need to have a formidable opposition to check on the government.
“My brother, I am ready to have a cup of tea with you after the August elections and agree on the role you will play. But I am not ready to the kind of arrangement you had with Uhuru five years ago that disrupted our government,” he said.
