NASA and Jubilee ward reps back Uhuru, Raila unity deal

Southern Africa Centre for Constructive Resolution of Disputes (SACCORD) Executive Director Boniface Cheembe says Africa is looking at how Zambia will reciprocate following the reconciliation between Kenya President Uhuru Kenyatta and opposition leader Raila Odinga.

Last Friday, President Kenyatta and Odinga surprised Kenyans including those close to them after their meeting at Harambee House where they resolved to set aside their political differences for the sake of national unity and urged Kenyans to move forward together as a united people. "Kenyans are exhausted of divisive and tribal politics and we will support our President in every decision he makes for the good of Kenyans", stated Guyo.

Tough talking ODM MCAs led by Nairobi County Assembly Minority Leader Elias Otieno said their party's constitution allows their party leader to enter into agreement with any party or individual and does not have to consult anyone before entering any pact. "We must now focus on initiating various reforms that are pending to avert fallout in future", said ODM Vice Chair Janet Ong'era.

The People's Assembly was launched by Odinga previous year after he disputed the 2 presidential elections held in August and October 2017. So let those who were courageous enough to go on with the "swearing-in" strike a deal.

"We take this opportunity to caution those opportunistic mindsets that will always wish to ride on confusion and unnecessary tribulations of our people as a country, " said Mr Okumu. He is among the leaders who have lauded Uhuru, Raila unity.

Mudavadi, Kalonzo (Wiper) and Bungoma Senator Moses Wetang'ula (Ford Kenya) said they were not aware this would happen.
