It started with musicians and now the trend is on politicians as finally, great rivals decide to bury the hatchet and unite for the better future.

It’s barely a week after Starehe Member of Parliament cum musician Charles Njagua alias Jaguar decided to solve their differences with rapper Prezzo and now controversial Embakasi East MP Babu Owino has followed suit.

As the head of state was addressing the nation on Wednesday where he apologized for anyone he had wronged, President Uhuru Kenyatta called upon Members of Parliament to unite and make peace by shaking hands and Babu took the cue and went for president’s hand.

Babu walked to Uhuru as the amused parliament cheered him on, eliciting a hearty laugh from the president. Babu doubled it up with another handshake with the president outside the parliament.

Babu later took to social media where he posted a post which seems to be an apology to the head of state for their differences, the post read

“I am a fruit of my mother’s womb & therefore I can never disrespect any woman for whatever reason.”

The Embakasi East Member of Parliament has shown the importance of peace as he is making a tremendous effort to reconcile with his rivals. Just a day earlier, Babu extended a peaceful gesture to nominated Senator Millicent Omanga who honored Babu’s invitation to grace bursary awarding ceremony in Embakasi East constituency.

The two seem to have made peace at last as Babu wrote “I would love to thank my sister Mama @HonMillyOmanga, Lower Savannah Ward MCA Hon Nicholas and thousands of patriots who showed up at Jacaranda grounds to help me award bursaries to our sisters and brothers in various secondary and tertiary learning institutions today”

In March Babu met with Starehe Mp Jaguar whom they had not being seeing each other eye to eye for long and settled their differences. “Today I met Hon. Jaguar at parliament and reconciled our differences. Promised to work together to serve the interest of Kenyans,” posted Babu to which Jaguar simply responded, “Kenya is finally one…”
