Barely a day after the National Dialogue Committee NADCO released its Report details have emerged that former President Uhuru Muigai Kenyatta attempted to scuttle the Bomas talks.

One of the Principals at the talks Kenya Kwanza’s Kimani Ichungwa went as far as to suggest that the former president wilfully attempted to sabotage the talks.

Ichungwa revealed that  Mr Kenyatta convened two meetings in two months and the aim was to scuttle Azimio la Umoja one Kenya Coalition’s engagement with Ruto’s Kenya Kwanza government.

The source adds that Mr Kenyatta disapproved of the direction the talks were taking on the matter of the cost of living and therefore wanted Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Coalition leaders to put President William Ruto under intense pressure to address key issues facing ordinary Kenyans.

The source further revealed that the meetings were held at Raila’s Karen residence and Uhuru urged participants to pull out of the talks if preliminary demands were not met.

Even before the Report was released senior Azimio partners Martha Karua and Eugene Wamalwa indicated that they would not agree with the report of the committee if it failed to address key issues facing ordinary Kenyans, especially the high cost of living.

Word in the grapevine now has it that Uhuru’s discomfort with Raila began when the opposition doyen was invited to State House to meet King Charles III. It is said that after the meeting Raila deliberately skipped a function in Ukambani where Mr. Kenyatta and Kalonzo Musyoka were in attendance.

Once the Report was released Raila has taken time to disapprove it although it largely fails to address the primary grievances presented by the Azimio side which was lowering the cost of living.

Raila has not pointed out that the pertinent issue of Electoral malfeasance which has denied him the office of the president in the past was glossed over in the report with barely a passing mention.

The doyen of Kenya’s opposition politics has instead said he will make known his position on the NADCO Report this coming Thursday.

It is already clear that Raila has toned down and the possibility of working with the Ruto government, particularly now that the office of the opposition leader is crystallized in law, is high on the cards.
