The president Uhuru Kenyatta and the former prime Minister Raila Odinga held a meeting with the political leaders allied to the Azimio la Umoja team.
The head of state appreciated the leaders for sacrificing their time and personal engagements to pass the coalition bill.
Raila Odinga reteriated that the passing of the bill was a major milestone in building a more united country and a better democratic space.
Leaders supporting the deputy president Dr William Ruto reacted against the meeting as they accused the president for turning statehouse into a place of conveying political meetings.
“The President [has a right] to meet [any one he likes). But this being an electioneering season, his meetings are bound to stir political waters,” said Murang’a Senator Irungu Kang’ata.
Kang’ata further said that when Uhuru favours one wing in Mt. Kenya and overlooks the other, he is fanning political divisions.
Kikuyu Mp Kimani Ichungwah and Kiharu Mp Ndindi Nyoro said that the meeting at state house should be treated normal as any other political meeting.
“What is important as the President divides the region is for all of us to realise that we have a future to hold on to and aspirations to, decisions he can’t dictate,”Mr Ngunjiri said.
