Insiders Detail How Ruto Caved in to Raila’s Demands

According to insiders familiar with the situation, Deputy President William Ruto of Kenya caved in to the demands of Opposition leader Raila Odinga, agreeing to a deal that was seen as a compromise between the two leaders.

The deal was reportedly reached on Tuesday afternoon, following days of wrangling over the terms of the power-sharing agreement between the two rival camps.

Under the agreement, Ruto has agreed to accept the post of Prime Minister and Odinga will become president in exchange for the latter’s backing of his 2022 presidential bid. Ruto has also agreed to work with Odinga on a new unity government and to establish a Truth & Justice Commission to investigate the 2007 Post-Election Violence in the country.

The agreement is also seen as a major victory for the Opposition camp, which had been pushing for sweeping reforms and a new electoral system since the 2017 general election.

The specifics of the deal, however, have reportedly yet to be made public and only time will tell what the full implications of the deal will be.
