Former presidential aspirant Ekuru Aukot has said his Thirdway Alliance Party is not desperate to shake hands with President Uhuru Kenyatta. "We are not desperate to shake the hand of President Uhuru Kenyatta, but there are people who are clearly desperate," he said on Monday. Ekuru, however, encouraged the President to reach out to those "desperate" to greet him so that they don’t threaten the peaceful co-existence of Kenyans.
He said some people who were not in government want to disrupt Kenyans' lives. Aukot said he fully supports the handshake between Uhuru and ODM leader Raila Odinga. "For the record, we were the first party that congratulated them," he said. "If this is an agreement between two individuals, let it not be an imposition on the public because it offends Article 201 of the Constitution on prudent use of public funds."
Aukot said it is time both leaders acknowledge there were wrongs committed during the electioneering period and in the past. He said there are already existing findings on what ails the country. He said the Truth Justice and Reconciliation Commission report should be implemented. Aukot said he supports Uhuru's fight against corruption and demolition of buildings on riparian land. However, he said the Building Bridges task force should be disbanded because "it undermines other institutions".
