Wiper Democratic Movement leader Hon. Kalonzo Musyoka has whipped his troops to support the proposed Peace Roadmap to national unity and reconciliation as agreed between President Uhuru Kenyatta and NASA leader Raila Odinga.
Although the respective National Executive Councils (NEC) of Wiper Democratic Movement, Amani National Congress and Ford Kenya have not yet ratified the pact, Kalonzo said whipping of their troops to support the Motion in Parliament would be a sign of goodwill for peace and prosperity in the country.
The Wiper leader said at the moment, it would be unwise for any national leader to oppose any initiative towards national cohesion when the country had gone through the most divisive election ever.
“We have whipped our MPs and Senators to support the Motion which will be tabled today by our brothers in ODM about the pact as agreed upon by Uhuru and Raila as a sign of good faith towards this noble initiative,” Kalonzo said.
Kalonzo has also proposed that he, Amani boss Musalia Mudavadi and Ford Kenya leader Moses Wetang’ula will be scheduling a meeting with President Uhuru, in a move aimed at extending an olive branch to the President and the Deputy President, William Ruto.
Meanwhile, the highly anticipated Kamba Nation Convention has been postponed from March 16th to April 2nddue to the prevailing heavy rains.
The announcement was made by the Chair of the organizing committee who is also the Makueni Woman Representative, Hon. Rose Museo, who was in the company of the Wiper leader.
The leaders made the remarks today during a consultative meeting with the Ukambani Church Leaders’ Forum hosted by Archbishop Timothy Ndambuki at the African Brotherhood Church, Bomani, in Machakos. Arch. Ndambuki is the chairman of the forum and the Vice-Chair of the National Council of Churches of Kenya (NCCK).
Arch. Ndambuki revealed that had been the church leaders’ prayers and opinion that Hon. Kalonzo, who is a proclaimed born-again Christian, must not take the oath on January 30.
“We have been encouraging those who were hurling insults at Kalonzo for his no-show on 30th to direct the blame on us, because we advised and prayed over it, and it came to pass.”
On matters security, the Forum resolved to set up a fact-finding committee to visit the victims of the evictions being currently carried out in Taveta.
