Details of Uhuru's Exclusive Meeting With Raila

  • Details have emerged about President Uhuru Kenyatta’s planned meeting with former Prime Minister Raila Odinga.

    The meeting, slated for Wednesday, November 27, at Bomas of Kenya, Nairobi, will encompass the official release of the Building Bridges Initiative report to the public for review after President Uhuru Kenyatta receives the document on Tuesday, November 26.

    A cover story by Daily Nation on Monday indicated that a total of 4,700 delegates are expected to attend the meeting, representing 100 individuals from every county.

    Quoting a source familiar with the arrangements, the publication further disclosed that officers from the Ministry of Interior had been tasked with making the invitations and subsequently facilitating the delegates’ transport to the venue.

    The invitations were sent by the 47 county commissioners in the country by way of Short Message Service (SMS).

    “Good afternoon ndugu (brother), kindly attend the BBI launch at Bomas on Wednesday,” read the SMS message.

    Among some of the leaders who confirmed attendance include Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru, her Kakamega counterpart Wycliffe Opranya and National Assembly minority leader John Mbadi.

    Waiguru intimated that she would attend the event “not just to witness but to be part of this historic moment”.

    Deputy President William Ruto had on Saturday hinted about the meeting while telling off Raila for promising that there would be a tsunami after the document’s release.

    “The most important thing to Kenyans is fixing the infrastructure, fighting poverty and generating jobs for youth.

    “Every Kenyan would be given a chance to read and understand the report. That way, we would agree on how we would move forward together,” the DP told a congregation at the African Independent Pentecostal Church of Africa in Thika, Kiambu County.

    The president and former prime minister are set to receive the document on Tuesday at State House.

    Deputy President William Ruto addressed Kenyans from Ndabot Ward Laikipia County on November 23.
