Raila arrives for Nasa meeting on deal with Uhuru

The People's Assembly steering committee chairman and NASA strategist David Ndii, said the decision was made to provide room to unify and get the country on the right course.

According to EFP, President Uhuru Kenyatta and the former Prime Minister Raila Odinga, out of the spirit of inclusivity should include such parties as Economic Freedom Party in the new national dialogue for a sustainable and real national unity.

"...the process will acknowledge that tribalism is not a name but a means used to acquire power", he said.

Deputy President William Ruto has called on politicians across the divide to shift their focus from elective politics and work together for the country's development.

Speaking at Okoa Kenya secretariat, Ndii however maintained that the opposition coalition NASA will not hesitate to resume its push for reforms should the deal between the 2 leaders end in a breach.

"Raila has done a lot for the country and he is important to the country but 2022 he should retire with Uhuru because that is the next honorable thing to do", he said.

The assembly was launched by Nasa leader Raila Odinga past year having disputed the presidential elections held in August and October.

NASA co-principals Moses Wetangula, Kalonzo Musyoka and Musalia Mudavadi have demanded an explanation why Raila met with Uhuru without any explanation.

"Even when President Kenyatta and Raila Odinga there are those who could not believe it", said Ruto.

The two leaders agreed to set out the path for national healing and reconciliation, but they are yet to define the structure the of the said talks. While others welcomed the idea, key Nasa members expressed scepticism.
