Martha Karua's powerful statement after Uhuru met Raila

Uhuru and Raila met at Harambee House in Nairobi on Friday. The details of the meeting are not yet known.

Taking to twitter on Friday, the former Kirinyaga Gubernatorial candidate hit at President Uhuru, adding that a dialogue for the people could not be avoided, given the circumstances in the country.

“Dialogue like we have said before cannot be avoided by a people who share a common destiny – Narc-Kenya says "one Kenya one nation one people,” she said on her twitter.

The statement comes ahead of US Secretary of State Rex W. Tillerson, who is expected in Nairobi today on his tour in Africa.

It is emerging, however, that the US may have pushed the two political antagonists to have talks, even after President Uhuru vowed never to hold talks on elections.

President Kenyatta on Friday morning held the first meeting with Raila Odinga since their fallout following the hotly contested August 8, 2017 General Election and October 26, 2017 repeat presidential poll that Mr Odinga boycotted.
