Oburu Odinga opens up on negotiating new deal between Raila and Uhuru

The negotiated political deal is said to be aimed at saving the country from deepening division.

Speculation has been rife across sections of the media that Oburu was negotiating for a political deal to save the country from deepening division.

It is believed that President Kenyatta sent National Assembly Majority Leader Aden Duale as an emissary to Oburu to initiate the discussions as part of a national dialogue.

Oburu has now come out to deny the claims terming them as outrageous aimed at tarnishing his reputation.

“It is not true that President Uhuru Kenyatta sent anybody to me for the purported discussions,” Oburu stated.

The EALA MP has threatened to take legal action on those peddling the lies and propaganda which he said aims at breaking up the NASA coalition.

“Yes, I met Duale, Deputy Speaker Moses Cheboi and Jubilee Chief Whip Benjamin Washiali over tea. I asked them to support my candidature once it is tabled in Parliament,” Oburu was quoted by The Star.
