Fake handshake? Kenyans taunt Raila on Miguna’s airport drama
Kenyans on Twitter have been taunting Nasa leader Raila Odinga over his unity handshake with President Uhuru Kenyatta, which they claim brought no relief Miguna Miguna’s troubles.
KoT started a trending hashtag dubbed #FakeHandshake to protest the treatment handed to NRM self-declared general Miguna Miguna on arrival Jomo Kenyatta International Airport on Monday night .
The hashtag mocked the reconciliation bid by Mr Odinga and President Kenyatta.
Mr Odinga’s presence at JKIA was not enough to stop the police from manhandling Miguna, leaving his clothes torn and journalists injured.
Mr Odinga was himself caught up in the drama of pushing and shoving at the airport.
Here is what KoT had to say on the #FakeHandshake.
BABA @RailaOdinga I have followed you and supported your principles for over 10 years, But after mistreatment of #migunamiguna At #JKIA upon #MigunaReturns Today I break One of Principles which is The #FakeHandshake I denounce it and will not therefore support it, DENOUNCE IT!!

It is only fair that our situation is made clear; we should be openly told that that was a #fakehandshake, and that we are still under the firm grip of iron fists covered in velvet gloves! #MigunaReturns

Miguna Miguna thought and knew clearly that he was coming back to a heroic welcome for a fresh start to save the nation from a #FakeHandshake by the trio leading a pack of rogue and corrupt regime #MigunaReturns look what happened
