Rudini Maandamano nyinyi wajaluo wajinga, na mtajua hamjui raundi hii-Oscar Sudi

Kapseret MP Oscar Sudi has called out Azimio la Umoja leader Raila Odinga over Tuesday’s demands for dialogue with the government.

Speaking shortly after Raila’s press conference, the legislator said he was shocked that Raila wanted the dialogue to be like that of 2008.

He questioned how the issues of reducing the cost of living and opening IEBC servers are related to the 2008 National Accord.

“I am shocked to hear Raila Odinga desperately seeking talks like the 2008 National Accord using the issues of the price of unga and opening of @IEBCKenya servers. Do these issues even relate? Heri tu mrudi Maandamano nyinyi,” Sudi said.

The 2008 National Accord followed the controversial 2007 presidential election that resulted in post-election violence after former President Mwai Kibaki (late) was declared winner.

The National Accord talks were led by former UN Secretary-General Koffi Anan (late).

On Tuesday, Raila said the bipartisan talks proposed by President William Ruto being purely Parliamentary may not fully achieve the intended objectives.

“It is the resolution of this meeting that a purely Parliamentary process will not serve the intended end, our suggestion is to have a conversation at the national level through a process akin to the 2008 National Accord,” the statement reads in part.

Azimio said the resolve came after holding deliberations following Sunday’s truce between Raila Odinga and President Ruto.

“We are going to have Members of Parliament in it but they are going to sit outside Parliament, they will negotiate and only take the final product to Parliament as an accord which will then be passed by Parliament. We don’t want it to be taken then be encumbered with the rules of Parliament,” Raila said on Tuesday.
