Uhuru: Jubilee is ready to meet with CORD for dialogue

01 June 2014, 15:18

Nairobi - The ruling Jubilee Coalition has agreed to meet with the opposition for a national dialogue, to address the problems facing the country.

Addressing the nation during this year’s Madaraka Day celebrations in Nairobi, President Uhuru Kenyatta welcomed CORD’s call for a national dialogue saying plans to hold such a forum have been there for the past five months.

However, the president ruled out the possibility of forming a coalition government saying the Jubilee government was strongly in power.

CORD leaders, led by former Prime Minister Raila Odinga Saturday called for a national dialogue forum to address matters of insecurity and corruption in the country by 7 July 2014.

Speaking in Nairobi on his return from the US, the coalition’s leader said there was a solution to the country’s problems.

In a quick rejoinder, Deputy President William Ruto ruled out the possibility of holding such a forum saying the next national conference will be held in 2017 when Kenyans return to the polls.
