Saboti Member of Parliament (MP) Caleb Amisi has told off individuals criticising Azimio la Umoja - One Kenya coalition leader Raila Odinga over his meeting with President William Ruto.

Raila met Ruto in Uganda for a joint meeting with President Yoweri Museveni at his home where they discussed various issues including Raila's candidacy for the African Union Commission (AUC) chairmanship and the two countries' commitment to deepening their diplomatic and economic ties.

"Kenya and Uganda are committed to the deepening of the long-established diplomatic and economic ties between our two countries. This relationship includes bringing all the seven East African Community nations closer in their ultimate goal to form the East African Political Federation," a statement shared by Ruto read in parts.

Their rendezvous elicited reactions from supporters of the government and the opposition with quarters wondering how the two who visibly appeared friendly with each other enjoyed company together when they were each other's fierce critics.

MP Amisi clapped back at Raila's critics saying he (Raila) was seeking a job and as such he had every right to engage the president however he wished.

He also urged his critics to allow Ruto to campaign for the opposition chief with whom he has a long history dating back to 2007 when he served as one of Raila's lead campaigners and advisor under the ODM party's 'Pentagon' organ. The party politburo also included seasoned politicians late Joseph Njaga, Najib Balala and Musalia Mudavadi.

"Why are people so mad, panicking, and running helter-skelter when Baba is seeking a job? Do you always want to see Baba jobless in the streets engulfed in teargas? He is a human bwana. Let's allow #ruto to campaign for his Pentagon boss. We must never cultivate a country of political hatred that has no value to the nation. This is going to be the best run AU since the death of Kwame Nkrumah," Amisi said.
