We are Ready to Resume Bipartisan Talks, says Ichung’wah

The National Assembly Majority Leader, Kimani Ichung’wah has said the Kenya Kwanza administration is ready to resume talks with their Azimio la Umoja counterparts with the sole agenda of reconstituting the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC).

Ichung’wah who had joined President William Ruto during a tour in South Mugirango Constituency, confirmed that they support the call by the religious leaders to carry on with the talks which was suspended by both parties.

“I want to confirm to you that those of us in Kenya Kwanza, in the line with the call of our clergymen, are ready to recommence the talks so that constituencies and wards without representatives due to the paralysis at IEBC can go for by-elections,” he noted.

The Majority Leader called on the political leaders to end the violence currently being witnessed in some parts of the country as proposed by the clergy and urged the aggrieved parties to allow the rule of law to prevail.

Ichung’wah said that violence cannot be a solution to the financial crisis that the nation is facing or any of the problems faced in the country.

He affirmed that the current administration is listening to the voice of the people as evident in the government initiatives citing the fertilizer subsidy provided to farmers as well as the newly proposed funding model for universities that will ensure vulnerable children access university education among others.

In addition, Ichung’wah urged the President to protect the country from further destruction saying millions of Kenyan children are looking up to him to safeguard their lives and property.

Prime Cabinet Secretary, Musalia Mudavadi noted the government was on the right track with regards to reviving the economy owing to international recognition from entities like the International Monetary Fund (IMF).

Mudavadi said the demonstrations witnessed in the country over the past few days were interfering with the recovery process and should be stopped.
