Mudavadi vows to mediate between CORD, Jubilee
08 June 2014, 10:27
Nairobi - Amani Coalition leader Musalia Mudavadi has said he is ready to mediate between the CORD and Jubilee coalitions as the clamour for dialogue grows.
The two major coalitions are battling over whether or not to hold dialogue, as proposed by CORD leadership over the country's current woes.
President Uhuru Kenyatta has said that he will only agree to dialogue only if the talks are centered on development agendas.
On their part, CORD want perceived issues with government appointments, the electoral commission and other issues addressed.
And thus there is a stalemate at the moment, one which Mudavadi says he has solutions to.
" I am ready to step in and mediate between the two sides for the sake of the nation, he said in Vihiga County Saturday.
" The country does require dialogue to deal with the current problems but there is need for the talks to be constructive and devoid of destructive positions and feelings, he said.
He did add that the country at the moment does not require a divisive leadership and urged the two sides to settle the issue at hand amicably.
" We need amicable talks and I am willing to help out in that regard, he added.
The CORD coalition has aggressively called for talks before the Saba Saba day in July saying that they will force through demonstrations if not agreed to, a stance that has been rejected by the Jubilee side.
