DP Ruto, US ambassador exchange words over IEBC dialogue

24 May 2016, 20:51 Joseph Njung’eh

Nairobi - The US ambassador to Kenya Robert Godec has asked Jubilee government and the opposition to have dialogue with the IEBC to solve stalemate and looming political duels.

Godec said dialogue is deeply needed following the Monday protests by the opposition that left several people killed and tens injured.

“Deeply concerned by violence around IEBC demonstrations. Urge authorities to show restraint and all to be peaceful. Dialogue is needed now,” Godec said in his twitter handle.

Later Deputy President William Ruto responded to Godec admitting that dialogue is needed but maintained that it should happen in parliament.

Ruto also expressed concerns that protests leads to bloodshed and destruction of property.

“Agreed. Protests breeds bloodshed, destruction and anarchy. Structured talks in Parliament is the constitutional option,” Ruto responded to Godec.

The parliamentary chairman of Defence and Foreign Relations Committee, Ndung’u Gethenji also agreed with the ambassador.

He, however, said the parliamentary Legal Affairs committee chairman Samuel Chepkonga is facilitating dialogue.

“100% agree Chairman Chepkonga’s committee on hand to facilitate dialogue in Parliament as we speak,” Gethenji responded to Godec also through twitter handle
