Opposition leader Raila Odinga has said that he is ready to hold dialogue with President Uhuru Kenyatta to discuss the way forward a day after withdrawing from the October 26 fresh presidential election.
Speaking on Radio Jambo on Wednesday morning, the opposition leader however, dismissed speculations that he is aiming for a coalition government between NASA and Jubilee.
“We need to solve our own problems and I am ready to hold talks with anyone so that we can get a solution to the current stalemate,” said the NASA principal.
The NASA leader also condemned the government for withdrawing his security, saying it was a clear indicator that President Kenyatta’s administration does not want the opposition to participate in the repeat poll.
“They didn’t even write a letter to notify me when they would be withdrawing my security detail and it was in the middle of the campaign. We even needed more officers,” said Raila.
He added that the campaign funds that NASA raised from Kenyans have already been spent in campaigns.
Raila is set to travel to London on Wednesday evening for a public lecture.
