  • President Uhuru Kenyatta's administration has laid out a shuttle diplomacy strategy to counter Opposition Leader Raila Odinga's resistance movement.

    Reports in the Nation, indicate the government has already drafted a schedule where senior officials are expected to visit foreign nations if the President's win is upheld by the Supreme Court on Monday.

    In the plan, Jubilee will send out invitation letters to Presidents inviting them to the swearing-in ceremony after which the selected representatives will starting traveling to foreign nations championing President Kenyatta's agenda.


    “We have reached a point that our friends in the opposition have created a situation where anything they say is perceived to be correct and what we say is wrong,” the Nation quoted a Jubilee insider.

    Sources privy to the plan revealed that the main agenda of the diplomacy would be to explain to foreign nations that the repeat polls were fair and credible and that President Kenyatta was legitimately elected.


    The delegations will reportedly be led by Deputy President William Ruto and Foreign Affairs Cabinet Secretary Amina Mohamed.

    The move to use shuttle diplomacy comes even as the Opposition led by Mr Odinga have insisted that they will resist President Kenyatta's government.

    According to the former Prime Minister, the repeat Presidential election held on 26th of October was not duly conducted and as such, the Head of State lacks legitimacy.

    Addressing his supporters after getting back from abroad on Friday, the National Super Alliance Leader announced that the third liberation had begun.


    He (Odinga) wants fresh elections conducted within 90 days.
