Former President John Mahama has expressed joy as Kenya President Uhuru Kenyatta and opposition leader Raila Odinga's attempts at reconciliation following last year's bitterly contested election.
The brewing rift within Nasa coalition seems to have reached the county level after Nairobi MCAs allied to ODM dared their coalition partners to walk out of the coalition if they feel aggrieved.
Wetangula on Saturday, March 10, confirmed the meeting was on.
"We have agreed to meet on Monday to know what happened on Friday.but my heart is at peace".
However, he expressed concern that, with diminishing chances that they could force a new round of free, fair and credible elections, joining hands with Jubilee Party was the only viable way to safeguard their political legitimacy.
Mr Okumu said that it is ODM party supporters who sacrificed most during the nationwide chaos leading to the "swearing in" of Mr Odinga at Uhuru Park, an event that other partners gave a wide berth.
"Odinga's unilateral flight into the Jubilee Party corner is true to his surprise-and-attack style of politics", Mr Muluka said, adding that even though Monday's meeting had been prearranged, only three of the principals would attend, suggesting that Mr Odinga was not welcome. "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.
He said the unity call by President Uhuru Kenyatta and Odinga was a calumniation of what he and the President started at Afraha Stadium in the run-up to 2013 General Elections.
During an ODM national governing council meeting early this month, the party told its allies in the coalition that it was ready to go it alone if pushed.
But Mr Odinga defended his move, saying it was the best option given the challenges facing the Opposition in recent days.
