Uhuru, Raila shelved interests for country's unity - Jubilee MPs

Uhuru, Raila shelved interests for country's unity - Jubilee MPs

Following the alleged mishandling of the August 8, 2017 presidential election that saw the victory of President Kenyatta and his Deputy William Ruto nullified by the Supreme Court, Kabando - together with other top Jubilee politicians including former Kiambu Governor William Kabogo called on the Kenyatta and Odinga-led faction to sit down and dialogue.

The former Prime Minister, it is understood, also apologised to his colleagues over the manner in which he had handled the issue. "We shall be retreating to ensure our individual parties, political organs are brought up to speed so that these issues are discussed and at the subsequent Summit meeting we shall break it down on the issues we have talked about today", the ANC leader said.

"It is very telling when you see the co-principals of NASA trying to seek explanations from a principal who is 'more equal'than the rest."In the absence of Raila, there is no (NASA) rally, there is no 'oomph!' stated Wamatangi. We have asked him questions over his discussions with Mr Kenyatta and he has answered them", hesaid".

He said unity was critical to achieving economic progress in the country hence the need to support President Kenyatta's commitment to national cohesion.

Odinga and President Kenyatta on Friday vowed to work together to foster unity, fight corruption, promote security, rights and freedoms and economic progress. "Stoking and threatening violence are not acceptable, nor are extra-Constitutional measures to seize power", they said, apparently referring to Mr Odinga's "People's President" push.

The former Senior Presidential Advisor said this is exactly what the lobby group Friends of Uhuru Kenyatta Caucus advocated all along past year.
