Former Funyula Member of Parliament Dr  Paul Otuoma has said he is ready for a handshake with  Busia Governor Sospeter Ojaamong to enable him serve the people of Busia County without political interference.

Speaking during the burial of Mzee  Peter Otung’u, 76,  the father to his chief campaigner in 2017 gubernatorial race George Okaal in Kolanya, Teso North  on Saturday, Otuoma said he had no problem with the Governor.

”  There is no need to engage in premature  politics. Let’s give the Governor time to serve his people. I will try my luck again in 2022,” he said, adding to fall is not a problem.

Dr Otuoma also lauded the  handshake between President Uhuru Kenyatta and  former Prime Minister Odinga  saying it had brought peace in the country.

” I was the first  to shake  hands with President  Kenyatta but received condemnation  might be because my handshake was small,” he said, amid laughter.

Otuoma  returned to Teso region barely a week after  attending  the burial of  the mother to his close ally  and  Sub County campaign coordinator  in 2017 general elections   Shem Papah in Aboloi.

The burial also witnessed the handshake between Angurai  East Member of the county assembly  Job Oteba and his predecessor  Moses  Mamai.
