NASA co-principals Kalonzo Musyoka, Moses Wetangula and Bungoma Senator Moses Wetangula have distanced themselves from a meeting between President Uhuru Kenyatta and NASA leader Raila Odinga saying they were not privy to the discussions.
In a statement to media houses the three however said they have scheduled a retreat on Monday 12th March when they will deliberate on the new political developments.
The statement states that “NASA is a coalition of Four political parties namely, Orange Democratic Movement (ODM), Wiper Democratic Movement-Kenya (WDM-K), Amani National Congress (ANC) and Ford Kenya.”
“While we have always advocated for dialogue, as Co-Principals of the NASA Coalition, we were not privy to the discussions at Harambee House.”
They claim to have learnt of the meeting held on Friday morning and said to have lasted about 2 hours through the media.
The President indeed met Raila where the two affirmed the need to unite Kenyans and the deep lying hatred among communities.
Uhuru said “we have had an opportunity for an extensive discussion on matters Kenya and we have come to a common understanding, an understanding that this country of Kenya is greater than any one individual.”
He said time is ripe for a more candid conversation on what ails the Country saying we want a United, harmonious nation where no individual feels left out.
Raila on the other hand was categorical that the division that has been there since independence must come to an end. He said they must set an example saying “my brother and myself have therefore come here today to say this dissent ends here”
He said they will unite Kenyans so that we can walk together, calling for on Kenyans to self reflect and make wise decisions.
The NASA leader said the continued disharmony will ruin the nation saying if we don’t address it we shall capsize.
