Raila reveals what he is waiting for after repeatedly differing with Uhuru

Raila and Uhuru take opposing stands despite public show of brotherhood

Odinga has made it clear that resistance from President Uhuru Kenyatta will not deter him from his push for constitutional amendment and the next few days could see major shifts in the political scene.

The NASA boss divulged that he is waiting for a final advice from the building bridges initiative team that was put in place to steer dialogue and unity.

“Whether they like it or not we will reach our destination and attain that what we are focused into. We know that good things do not come easily.

You saw the team was gazette and has started working. It is the committee which will bring forward recommendations that we will implement. If the team says we need to amend the Constitution, we will do so and no one will stop us” Odinga stated.

Odinga who was addressing the public during an Iftar dinner (first evening meal after fast during Ramadhan) organized by Mombasa governor Hassan Joho, Odinga maintained that his push for a referendum whose “goal is to form an all-inclusive Kenya” is simply unstoppable.

His stand has put him on a collision path with his new political friend and brother Uhuru Kenyatta who has on numerous occasions openly opposed the calls for a referendum.

During yesterday’s Madaraka day celebrations, the president maintained that constitutional change will not deliver the Kenyan dream even as the opposition chief appears to be readying his forces for a nationwide tour to support the initiative.
