The Bull Fighter reveals all.
Taking to twitter on Sunday, the Ford Kenya deputy party leader revealed that his pursuit to have Uhuru and Raila hold talks, which he officially wrote to the two leaders early February, hit a dead end after he was chided.
“On 3/02/2018, I wrote to Raila Odinga and President Uhuru Kenyatta appealing for dialogue. I was roundly insulted & dismissed by many. Having done the needful, I am very happy,” Dr Khalwale said in a tweet.
He, however, noted that the infamous handshake by the two leaders on Friday, should not only signify that the impasse that has been there is about the two leaders, but Kenya as a whole.
“However, they must spare us the impression that it is about just the two of them, their families and communities. Kenya is for all of us,” he added.
Dr Khalwale was reacting to the ongoing conversation on what might have prompted the two once political foes who met for the first time on Friday last week at Harambee House in Nairobi, and later addressed a joint press conference.
Meanwhile, Opposition Chief Raila Odinga and President Uhuru Kenyatta stuck a deal to have a common office through which their common objectives for the country would be addressed.
After meeting, the two leaders settled on Ambassador Martin Kimani and lawyer Paul Mwangi (a close ally Of Mr Odinga) to lead the office, which will oversee the program.
“President Uhuru and Raila Odinga have agreed to roll out a program that will implement their shared objectives.”
“The program shall establish an office and retain a retinue of advisors to assist ion the implementation. An official launch shall be held soon,” the statement seen by Pulse Live Kenya read in part, adding that the roll out, or rather launching of the common office will be done soon, to commence the work.
It is worth noting that Dr Khalwale has been drumming up efforts to have the two leaders talk, even after he said last week that the swearing-in of Mr Odinga was a sideshow to hoodwink the Head of State for talks with the Opposition.
His party has however, expressed disquiet in the deal reached by President Uhuru and Nasa chief Raila Odinga, for “failure to consult.”
