Why Raila held exclusive meeting with key officials of Kikuyu Elders

By Mourice Seretta

ODM Leader Raila Odinga today met and held a discussion at his home over a meal with members of the Kikuyu Council of Elders led by their Chair Wachira Kiago.

Raila says that the conversation was about moving our Country forward not on the patchy path of tribal lines that have and continue to occasion annihilation.

“We’ve been sold fear for decades; it’s time that as a people and a Nation we embraced LOVE and PEACE. This is the journey we are embarking on, are you willing to join us as we SIT down and TALK candidly?” Raila posed on his social media platforms.

In December 2020, the ODM leader met up with the Council of Eminent Persons of Murang’a including; chairman Joe Kibe, secretary Dr Nyamu Njoka, James Ngethe and Royal Media Services chairman SK Macharia.

The meeting was held at Raila’s Opoda Farm in Bondo, Siaya County, and was a special expression of friendship and meant to spearhead matters of national reconciliation and good governance.

There have been speculations that the meeting between the two leaders are meant to cement the relations between President Uhuru Kenyatta and ODM leader Raila Odinga.

Raila is regarded as one of the frontrunners for the 2022 Presidential Elections though he has not publicly declared that he is going to be in the race.

Votes from the Mt Kenya basket would be a massive boost for his candidacy should he chose to run.

If Raila chooses to be in the ballot, he will contest against Deputy President William Ruto who has already declared his candidature.
