Opposition Chief Raila Odinga has said he is ready to work with Deputy President William Ruto in future, if situation allows them to work together.

Speaking to KTN, hours after Deputy President William Ruto’s candidate Feisal Abdalla won in the Msambweni mini-poll, Odinga noted that he has worked with the DP before, and he can work with him in future.

“They say politics make strange bedfellows. So, I have worked with Ruto before and if circumstances will conspire then I will work with him again,” he said.


Odinga dismissed claims that he chased Ruto from ODM party, noting that the latter made a personal decision to ditch the Orange party following an investigation that was happening back then.

The DP is a harsh critic of Odinga and is believed to be one of his major threats should he decide to contest the presidential seat in the 2022 general election.

Over the past few weeks, Odinga and the P have been involved in a heated exchange over the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI), where Odinga advocates for no amendments to the report, while the DP is of the view that the report should be subjected to debate, and a consensus arrived at before it is subjected to a referendum.
