Jubilee-allied leaders now call for dialogue with NASA and IEBC
Seven Jubilee-allied leaders supporting the re-election of President Uhuru Kenyatta have called for immediate national dialogue on electoral reforms ahead of the October 26 repeat presidential poll.
In a press statement signed by among others, former Kiambu Governor William Kabogo and Kirinyaga Governor aspirant Martha Karua, the leaders urged the Jubilee government, National Super Alliance (NASA) coalition and the IEBC to dialogue with the aim of reaching an agreement for the conduct of a fair and smooth repeat presidential election.
“We call for immediate inclusive national dialogue on enduring electoral reforms and honest re-engagement with IEBC on the presidential election process,” the statement reads in part.
The leaders, writing under the banner of ‘caucus of leaders that support the president’, say the efforts must be made to moderate, calm and inspire confidence and peace in the country, blaming the current political turmoil on mistrust and lack of communication.
“We fear that destructive elements are inciting our security forces, the electoral agency itself and even other critical national leaderships to cause havoc, violence and grandstanding that may break this country,” reads part of the statement.
They further called on President Uhuru Kenyatta and NASA flag bearer Raila Odinga to engage with each other, adding that competition between the two should not breed enmity with barely ten days to go to the repeat presidential poll.
The statement is signed by Kabogo, Karua, Peter Mositet, Samuel Ragwa, Dr. Kilemi Mwiria, Ndung’u Gethenji and Kabando wa Kabando.
