Deputy President William Ruto and Orange Democratic Movement Party boss Raila Odinga were seen enjoying their time together during the burial service of the late Matungu MP Justus Murunga.
Murunga who died a month ago on suspected Covid-19 virus was on Saturday December 5th finally laid to rest at his Matungu Village home in Kakamega County.
The service which was characterized by BBI undertones, saw major political players, former Premier Raila Odinga, Musalia Mudavadi, Moses Wetang’ula, and Dr. William Ruto attend.
However, what was interesting was the fact that both Odinga and Ruto could be seen consulting regularly and easily as their supporters watched from a distance.
Reacting on the same, Mbita Member of Parliament Millie Odhiambo described the Ruto/Odinga bro-mance as encouraging saying politicians will only talk tough but never fight quite different from the way their supporters behave on the ground.
“Those fighting and insulting each other in the name of politics just take note,” she tweeted earlier in the day as the funeral went on.
She was speaking over the photos which were already in huge circulation around social media platforms showing the two political protagonist showing brotherhood as if nothing was standing in-between them.
Ruto, in most cases, could be seen stretching his left hand towards Mr. Odinga, holding his shoulder as he tried to find something from him. Odinga on the other hand, responded with equal gestures throughout.
But even as Millie seemed mesmerized by this, Kenyans did not spare her, they reminded her of her ugly past where she has been on record shouting down political rivals especially those opposed to her boss Mr. Raila Odinga.
Millie is a strong supporter of Raila Odinga who never takes it light anytime someone tries to pass his path.
“What about those who are heckling over politicians? There is something I want to know,” Luteni Lawi mocked her.
The late MP Justus Murunga who was elected first in 2017 and commonly referred to as ‘the Drill’ by his supporters was finally laid to rest at Matungu Constituency in Mumias Area in an event that was attended by friends, relatives and colleagues.
