Norman Magaya Discloses When Uhuru-Raila Dialogue Will Start

  • National Super Alliance (NASA) on Friday declared that the door for dialogue between its leader, Raila Odinga, and President Uhuru Kenyatta is closed.

    Speaking to KTN, NASA CEO Norman Magaya noted that the Opposition gave the Commander-in-chief ample time to initiate talks but has since been silent about it.

    Magaya commented that the dialogue will now take place after the swearing-in of Odinga as the People's President on January 30.

    “We gave President Kenyatta enough time to have a dialogue with us and I can assure you that the door is now closed. The swearing-in will go on as initially planned and dialogue may happen after January 30 between two Presidents,” he stated.

    The coalition boss insisted that the ceremony will be held at Uhuru Park despite a notice by the Nairobi County Government closing the area for renovations.

    “Our first option is Uhuru Park, our second option is Uhuru Park and our third option is Uhuru Park,” he asserted.

    According to Magaya, the swearing-in is a national ceremony thus the Opposition expects police to provide adequate security just like any other event.

    He reiterated that anyone who tries to stop the event will simply 'drown.'

    The coalition is set to have a pre-inauguration ceremony by convening Luo Nyanza People's Consultative Forum hosted by Homa Bay County on Friday.
