Kenyans will also be involved in the ongoing bipartisan talks bringing together President William Ruto and Azimio La Umoja boss Raila Odinga’s sides.
This is according to KANU Secretary of Political Affairs Fred Okang’o, whose party is a member of the opposition’s Azimio side.
He has said that once the two sides iron out their differences, Kenyans will also be involved and their opinions taken for consideration by the committee.
The former Thirdway Alliance Secretary General has said that even now, the talks are not about the two but the well being of the entire country.
“These talks are not between two people, these talks are not between William Ruto or Raila Odinga, it is about Kenyans,” he said on Thursday.
He added that Azimio is in the talks on behalf of Kenyans and is not making proposals with the aim of assisting anybody to realise personal goals.
“I think this talk is important and we have always said that as we are going to this talk as Azimio we believe it will help Kenyans hence our intentions are pure,” he added.
This comes at a time when the talks are appearing to be finally making progress, after several false starts before, which saw them temporarily abandoned.
They began after Raila and his supporters held several protests around the country, while accusing Ruto of among others, election rigging.
After two weeks of intense biweekly protests, the two agreed to come up with a team to handle their differences, with Raila giving a number of demands.
Yesterday, the team announced it has identified reconstitution of the electoral commission as a priority and put it top on its agenda.
Azimio’s side is led by Rarieda MP Otiende Amollo while Kenya Kwanza’s chair is Tharaka MP George Murugara.
