Kerry meeting with CORD leaders not welcome

04 May 2015, 18:48 William Korir

Nairobi - US Secretary of State John Kerry's meeting with opposition CORD leaders was not welcomed by the Jubilee government, sources have told News24.

The US Secretary of State met the CORD leaders at the Serena Hotel Monday a few hours after meeting president Uhuru Kenyatta at State House.

The meeting lasted close to an hour and the CORD leaders took their time to explain their current feelings about the state of the nation.

According to CORD co principal Kalonzo Musyoka, issues such as insecurity, Kenya in Somalia and electoral reforms were discussed during the meeting.

It has however emerged that the government was unhappy with the meeting, especially as it came after his meeting with Kerry and had raised reservations about it to his team.

Those concerns were however brushed aside.

" There were concerns raised about the meeting but they were not taken up, a source in the US embassy that asked not to be named told News24.

During a press conference in the aftermath of a press conference by the US secretary at the Sankara Hotel in Nairobi, Kerry when asked about the details of his meeting with CORD leaders said that they spoke about everything.

" We spoke about the welfare of Kenya," he said cagily.

It is expected too that when president Barrack Obama visits Kenya in July, he will have a meeting with the opposition leaders, especially considering  CORD leader Raila Odinga's highly respectable character.
