Kenyans must be included in the talks between RUTO and MARTHA KOOME – RAILA ODINGA‘s ODM states

Wednesday, January 17, 2024 - Former Prime Minister Raila Odinga’s Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party has welcomed the dialogue between President William Ruto and Chief Justice Martha Koome, over corruption allegations in the Judiciary.

Koome on Monday said she is ready to meet with President William Ruto to resolve the differences between the Executive and Judiciary.

However, speaking on Wednesday, ODM Secretary General, Edwin Sifuna, said though he welcomes the talks, he said all Kenyans must be included.

“Martha Koome akiongea na Ruto lazima Wakenya wakue hapo ndio tujue wanaongea nini,” which translates to “When Martha Koome talks to Ruto, Kenyans must be there to understand what they are discussing.”

Sifuna’s remark underscores the importance he places on transparency and openness in political discourse, particularly when high-profile figures from different spheres engage in discussions that could have far-reaching implications for the nation.

The unexpected call for talks between the Chief Justice and the President has sparked curiosity among the public, and Senator Sifuna’s statement reflects the sentiment that such interactions should not be shrouded in secrecy.

Senator Sifuna’s assertion also highlights the evolving nature of political dynamics in Kenya, where leaders from different branches of government are occasionally prompted to engage in dialogue for the greater good of the nation.
