National Assembly Majority leader Aden Duale has aimed a sly dig at Opposition leader Raila Odinga after his visit of former President Daniel Moi.
The ODM leader on Thursday visited Moi at his Kabarnet home where they discussed the state of the nation.
Hours after the visit, Duale said politicians visiting Moi should not expect to use it as a campaign tool for the 2022 election.
He noted that Tiaty MP William Kamket, who welcomed Raila alongside Gideon Moi and Moiben MP Silas Tiren, may have been “a bit excited”.
“Congratulations but this should not excite you,” the MP said in an address at Parliament.
“Your visit is just an extension of the handshake. Mr Speaker, today the handshake was in Kabarak … it has moved from Harambee House.”
He added: “Those visiting Mzee Moi are allowed to go and tell him ‘pole (sorry)’ because he served us for 24 years. But those who intend to be in the 2022 race … you don’t need such visits … face we who are on the other side.”
The Garissa Township MP added that the March 9 handshake between Raila and President Uhuru Kenyatta will have little impact on the next presidential election.
