FORD-Kenya party leader Moses Wetangula has stated that the unity deal between President Uhuru Kenyatta and opposition chief Raila Odinga is not the solution to Kenya’s underlying problems.

The Bungoma Senator, however, credited the monumental handshake for playing a role in reducing the political tension witnessed in the country during the post-election period.

Speaking at St. Mary’s High School in Busia, the ousted senate minority leader said it was important for the country’s problems to be put into consideration for the country to develop.

“The issue of two people shaking hands is fine, it reduces the temperature… but it does not solve the problems that have brought us to where we were unless we address the serious issues,” said Wetangula.

“Electoral injustice must be addressed; and you will not address electoral injustice through a handshake, you will address it through reforms of the law and the constitution. That is what will help us.”

Wetangula also spoke about his 2022 political ambitions saying he was open to alliances.

“In 2022, Wetangula wants to form government with others or others will form government with Wetangula,” he said.

Wetangula was accompanied by Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT) Secretary General Wilson Sossion and Matayos MP Geoffrey Odanga.

The NASA co-principal on Wednesday met Wiper Democratic Movement leader Kalonzo Musyoka over his alleged feud with Raila Odinga.
