In a shocking turn of events, President Uhuru and Raila Odinga, head of NASA Coalition, met four days ago. They agreed to work together in a journey that will not only unite Kenya but also build its economy. In the meeting, it was discussed that Ambassador Martin Kimani will join Paul Mwangi to oversee the foundation of Uhuru-Raila unity, a programme that will soon be launched.
In the meeting, Uhuru welcomed Raila Odinga to Harambee House. Just as Raila had stated, the meeting was their first step towards holding an extensive discussion regarding Kenya and its future. In addition, he said that the two have an understanding to work as a team because Kenya is greater than anybody else. The duo buried their differences for a new Kenya and a more focused political landscape.
On the other side, the former prime minister noted that it was time to self-reflect and bury the hatchet. Raila pointed out that the differences in political preferences had an adverse impact on the country. He also added that it was detrimental to cling onto tribalism and different political parties in the name of power.
Additionally, Raila said that politics is seasonal and every season had a specific duration over which Kenyans are allowed to air their preferences; however, it was critical to note the leader’s effort to create a peaceful environment in the community. Expressing his commitment to working with President Uhuru in order to foster economic ties for a prosperous country, Raila concluded that the ties of the Kenyan constitution bind the citizens.
Jubilee has called on leaders to promote peace by embracing their political differences. This is one strategy that will see to it that Kenyans overcome their grievances. Given that Kenya has different tribes, the differences pose as a challenge in many aspects. Moreover, no one agrees on the origin of their differences. It would be sad for people to continue losing their lives in the name of political differences.
