Deported Odinga ally slams peacetalks with Uhuru as a betrayal

Kenyatta and his long-time thorn-in-the flesh Raila Odinga, who is the National Super Alliance (NASA) leader have publicly reconciled and resolved to work together in the interest of Kenyans.

Talking about their planned meeting on social media, the former SONU leader Babu Owino urged their supporters attending the meeting to be ready for anything, purporting that the meeting could as well not end so well.

In a statement posted in his Facebook page and on his official Twitter handle, Mr Miguna said Mr Odinga's "erratic decision to betray the fight for electoral justice" can not be justified.

For many observers, the historical divisions between the Kenyatta and Odinga dynasties and the ethnic groups they represent cloud the promise of Kenya's democracy.

Elections were first held in August but the courts ordered a re-run, saying Mr Kenyatta's victory was marred by irregularities.

"Kenya calls on the strongly consider the proposal made to have a surge operation in Jubba Valley region, which was made nearly three years ago, in order to root out al-Shabab", Kenyatta said. I understand that Mr. Odinga has further stated that the "conflict is over" and called on the country to "reconcile and move on".

At one point, Mr Odinga asked Mr Godec and other 10 envoys to keep off Kenya's political affairs after calls that he should accept the legitimacy of President Kenyatta.

He said they have agreed to stop any dissent immediately and not to allow the country's diversity to kill their nation.

Allies in Odinga's NASA coalition, including his running mate in last year's poll, Kalonzo Musyoka, said they were not aware of the meeting and promised to give a detailed statement later.

Madaxweynaha Kenya Uhuru Kenyatta ayaa sheegay in Raila Odinga uu yahay Walaalkii, isla markaana ay billaabayaan geedi socodka ay wada xaajoonayaan halka ay dhibaatada iyo kala qeybsanaanto ka timid.

The two share several similarities including making history as the longest serving political detainees in Kenya, with Odinga leading, after spending nine years behind bars, under retired President Daniel Moi's rule. "That is the only way this country will go into the election on October 26".

Speaking after the rare and historic meeting, Odinga told reporters: "The time has come for us to consult and resolve our differences, these differences are becoming too entrenched, people are dying out of these differences".

That's not a coincidence, said independent political analyst Martin Andati.

On Friday morning, Mr Odinga and Mr Kenyatta met at Harambee House in Nairobi.

"It's a really good step towards harmonizing the country", said Brian Wanjoki, a pedestrian.
