Oparanya Urges Uhuru to consider Raila’s call for dialogue

06 June 2014, 12:32 Joseph Njung’eh

Nairobi - Kakamega county boss Wycliffe Oparanya has urged the Jubilee coalition to consider calls by CORD coalition leader, Raila Odinga for a national dialogue.

Oparanya said though the CORD leader could demand for a government share, it was reasonable because ‘he is in political coldness’.

“Uhuru Kenyatta is the father of the nation and he should offer shelter to everyone. He should consider national dialogue calls by the CORD leader and listen to his grievances,” Oparanya noted.

However, Nyeri Senator Mutahi Kagwe sharply differed with Oparanya stating that CORD should use constitutional avenues including the Parliament and Senate to raise their issues.

Kagwe said Raila should seek audience with the President instead of addressing his political issues in public rallies.

“He should have a round table meeting with the President. A dialogue cannot be demanded or held in public rallies,” said Kagwe.

His sentiments were echoed by former Laikipia East MP, Mwangi Kinjuri who said the CORD leader should have used elders to get the President's audience.

Kiunjuri asserted that Raila should be held responsible for the current government woes.

He explained that the CORD leader was a partner in the coalition government that sent Kenya Defence Forces (KDF) soldiers to Somalia, which led to retaliatory attacks by the Al Shabaab militia.

The politicians spoke in Mathira constituency during the burial of Nyeri governor Nderitu Gachagua’s father, Nahashon Gachagua Reriani.

Speaking in the same function, Kiambu governor William Kabogo urged politicians affiliated to Jubilee alliance to stop responding to sentiments made by the opposition reasoning that ‘the more they politicize the more it gets worse’.
