Raila holds talks with Roots Party George Wajackoyah on post-election issues in Kisumu County.
Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Coalition party leader Raila Odinga has met former Roots party presidential candidate George Wajackoyahin Kisumu.
Wajackoyah revealed that they spoke about post-election concerns and the need for a strong democracy in order to improve Kenya.
The Roots party leader explained that he congratulated Raila Odinga as he did President William Ruto.
“Meeting Baba. We have resolved to push for vibrant democracy without fear or intimidation,” Wajackoyah said.
“Meeting Baba at the lounge. I similarly congratulated him as I did Hon William Ruto,” he said. He expressed interest in keeping Ruto’s administration in check even as the Azimio la Umoja leader played his opposition role. “We shall work for the betterment of this nation without shortsightedness, intimidation, tribal affiliations or fear,” the Roots party leader said.
The seasoned lawyer said that he has been friends with the veteran politician for a long time, more than 40 years ago.
“Baba was happy. We have known each other for over 40 years. I knew Jaramogi and Kibaki well. Jaramogi introduced the late Masinde Muliro to me,” he disclosed.
