NASA Suspends People’s Assembly Process To Allow Raila – Uhuru Dialogue


Nasa has suspended the People’s Assembly following the talks between President Uhuru Kenyatta and NASA leader Raila Odinga.

Steering committee chairman David Ndii said: “We have accepted and we acknowledge that its better to reason together than alone.”

“We are therefore suspending the peoples assembly process,” Ndii said in a press conference at Okoa Kenya offices on Monday.

The Nasa strategist said they have impressed upon the leaders for the unity process to be honest truthful and courageous.

“…the process will acknowledge that tribalism is not a name but a means used to acquire power,” he said.

Speaking on behalf the People’s Assemblies, Ndii said commended Raila and Uhuru for agreeing to end the fights over last year’s elections.

“A nation is shared…this is the glue that holds us together…we must commend the two leaders because we have not had leaders do that in the past.”

But Ndii said the coalition will not hesitate to resume the process should the deal between the leaders be breached.

He said no negotiation had taken place leading to the memorandum between Uhuru and Raila.

“The memorandum is an individual initiative by the two leaders. As friends and compatriots, we are remaining vigilant and we ask Kenyans to join hands so that we can do this together.”

The assembly was launched by Nasa leader Raila Odinga last year having disputed the presidential elections held in August and October.
