On the night of the 22nd of March, President Uhuru Kenyatta made a call to the Mombasa Governor H.E Hassan Joho and asked him to mobilize Kilifi governor H.E. Amason Kingi and their counterpart from Kwale H.E. Salim Mvurya for a meeting on the 24th of March 2021. Below are the details of the meeting!
It was agreed that.
1) The coast Regional leaders should form a new political party and use it to bargain with the so-called “Sacred” or “One Kenya” Alliance compromising of H.E. Musalia Mudavadi, Hon. Gideon Moi, Hon.Mukhisa Kituyi, H.E. Kalonzo Musyoka and Senator. Wetangula.
2) Political leaders from Coast to stop working with ODM and Deputy President William Ruto and rally behind one leader (Hassan Joho)
3)Coast Region leaders to support government agenda and President Uhuru Kenyatta.
Deputy President William Ruto received Intelligence regarding the meeting outcomes and immediately requested for an Interview with Citizen Radio, an opportunity he used to attack the so-called regional Parties and indirectly hit President Uhuru Kenyatta!
During the interview, the deputy president talked positively about the ODM Party and its party leader Raila Odinga, saying that he has no problem working with Raila towards 2022. He was simply reacting to the resolutions of the meeting between President Uhuru Kenyatta and the Coast Governors.
Today, the ODM party leader Raila Odinga sent two of his party MPs to get a brief from Joho on what was discussed between them and the President. It is believed that Governor Joho refused to talk to them and even declined to pick Raila’s calls. This prompted Raila Odinga to summon ODM Secretary General Edwin Sifuna to write a Media Statement on matters of Political Alliances and Coalition Building which mirrored what the deputy president William Ruto said on Radio Citizen.
Next week on Wednesday, President Uhuru Kenyatta will whip Dr. Fred Matiang’i and the Gusii Leaders to rally behind one Political leader from the Kisii community who will work with the team he is forming. It is believed that he is set to do so in his backyard of Mt Kenya!
