Raila discloses 4 things Kisumu should expect after his meeting with Uhuru
Raila tours Kisumu for the first time after holding talks with President Kenyatta
The NASA leader disclosed that the city would soon host President Uhuru Kenyatta as they embark on a nationwide tour to unite the nation following last year’s elections that left the nation deeply divided.
“If you allow me, I will bring Uhuru here so that we can affirm the peace pact.” Odinga stated.
The opposition boss also disclosed that he had reached an agreement with President Uhuru Kenyatta to compensate the families of those killed in the violence that followed the disputed August elections and the repeat polls conducted in October last year.
Kisumu was one of the regions that witnessed violence after the opposition disputed the results of the election with Odinga claiming that his victory had been stolen.
Opposition strongholds boycotted the repeat polls with police engaging in running battles.
The crackdown launched by state agencies on opposition politicians is also expected to come to an end.
A host of legislators from the region were caught up in the crackdown with vocal lawyer Miguna Miguna who hails from Kisumu deported to Canada in controversial circumstances.
The region will also be looking forward to better services and inclusion in the government after the two leaders publicly declared their unity a new beginning for Kenya.
Yesterday’s visit by Odinga which brought business to a standstill in the lakeside city was the first since he held talks with President Kenyatta.
