MOMBASA – Kenya President Uhuru Kenyatta on Tuesday held a consultative meeting with a cross-section of political party leaders in Mombasa.
The meeting was to discuss several subjects touching on the state of Kenyan especially as tensions continue to rise on the political side between different personalities over power control.
“Among the subjects discussed by the leaders were, COVID-19’s impact on the country and how to revamp the economy; and the importance of maintaining peace, unity and national cohesion,” said state house spokesperson Kanze Dena Mararo.
Political party leaders Raila Odinga (ODM), Musalia Mudavadi (ANC), Kalonzo Musyoka (Wiper), Moses Wetangula (Ford Kenya), and Gideon Moi (KANU) attended the meeting at State House, Mombasa. Also present was Kakamega Governor and ODM Deputy Party Leader Wycliffe Oparanya.
Conspicuous by his absence was deputy president William Ruto who continues to be sidelined from most events held by Kenyatta in preference of Raila Odinga.
Ruto, however, held a MCAs meeting on Tuesday in the capital attended by more than 15 representatives from Kitui County.
Leaders must aspire to work together and compete on the platform of issues, programmes and their development track-record. We must rid our country of old political tactics of threats and coercion that will not make better the lives of ordinary Kenyans. pic.twitter.com/6N2qLZSQp8
