What Raila and Uhuru will discuss

President Uhuru Kenyatta and Raila to hold dialogue

According to the Nation, the strengthening of institutions, inclusivity, devolution and good governance will form the basis of the talks.

The agenda is expected to address concerns by the opposition that some regions have been excluded hence the calls for secession and also pave way for electoral reforms and justice ahead of 2022 elections.

Religious leaders and western envoys have been championing for the talks following the October repeat polls that left the country deeply divided.

Earlier on, Kenyatta maintained that he would not engage in any talks with the opposition but he softened his stand during the Jamhuri day celebrations.

A source privy to the details disclosed to the local daily that “while both Jubilee and NASA leaders have been warming up to talks, there are still concerns about the format that the engagement should take.”

The opposition coalition postponed its plans to swear in Raila Odinga, paving way for the talks.
