What Raila discussed with ex-Mungiki leader in his office

Raila makes one special request to ex Mungiki leader

Njenga who led the Amani Sasa Foundation- a group comprised of religious, youth and community leaders from Eastern, Rift Valley and Central Kenya was briefed on the progress of the unity deal between President Uhuru Kenyatta and Raila Odinga.

Odinga hailed the deal as a genuine initiative to tackle issues such as tribalism, marginalization, corruption and divisive elections that have bedeviled the nation for years.

"We want to come together again and refine some aspects of our life that still seem to trouble us as a nation. These include runaway corruption, tribalism, divisive elections and marginalization,” Odinga said.

The NASA leader made a special request to the group to use the peace deal in advancing peace and unity and pursue long lasting peace and stability.

The former premier also appealed to Kenyans to separate the building bridges initiative from 2022 succession politics and individual political ambitions that could see the problems currently facing the country last beyond the curret regime.

A section of MP s allied to DP Ruto have alleged that the peace deal between Odinga and Uhuru was a political move and have blamed Odinga for  the tension and divisions in Jubilee.

Njenga was at one point the leader of the outlawed Mungiki group that reigned terror.

He however ditched the group in pursuit of salvation and established a Church. He also contested for the Laikipia Senatorial seat in 2017 but lost.
