ODM: Uhuru handover PR excercise

07 October 2014, 19:00 William Korir

Nairobi - Leaders in the Orange Democratic Movement ODM say that they president Uhuru Kenyatta's handover was a public relations exercise.

Uhuru has temporarily handed power to deputy president William Ruto in a bid to protect the country's sovereignty as he heads to the ICC to have his name cleared over crimes against humanity charges.

ODM leaders Jakoyo Midiwo and James Orengo though, were least impressed by the president's antics, saying they were simply a measure to impress Kenyans.

" What he did was not necessary. It was just a PR exercise", Midiwo said.

" He travels out of the country every day and we do not see any of this happening. Why now? Why isn't there a handover when he travels on other occasions", a bemused Midiwo posed.

On his part, Orengo said that the constitution provides for cases in which the president is unavailable thus he does not understand the fuss created.

" It was much ado about nothing", he said.

" Yes, the president has travelled and we understand what is going on but we know that the Constitution provides for such cases and thus it must not be overplayed".

" Yes, there was too much fuss including the unnecessary parliamentary address", he insisted.

Uhuru will assume the presidency again when he returns to the country and many wonder if there will be a re-handover process again.

" We wait and see", Orengo says.
