Lugari Member of the National Assembly, Nabii Nabwera, has expressed dissatisfaction with the ongoing talks for a common ground between President William Ruto and Azimio leader Raila Odinga.
The first-time lawmaker, who was elected under the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) ticket, faulted his party leader for striking a truce with the president, saying it was done on an individual and emotional basis.
“I have a serious issue with the whole process. I will raise it. I have told Raila since Sunday, April 2, and I will continue telling him, and history will vindicate me this way. We cannot be repeating the same things the same way every time. Never,” Nabii said during an interview with K24.
“The decisions arrived at are emotional. Much of the work is done behind the scenes. Once the general has issued a command, we take the command, but that does not mean we stop looking at the command, whether it is going to give us the desired result or not.”
The former Kakamega County Chief of Staff also revealed that many of Odinga’s allies do not understand his kind of agreement with Ruto.
“The two leaders who met and configured it in their understanding must provide the leadership to it. You leave it we shall go to another battle. We have listed our issues. They are not unlimited to the configuration of IEBC. So, it is important that the two leaders must define and give us the way forward,” he said.
