Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) leader Raila Odinga says that he ready for dialogue with his rival President Uhuru Kenyatta.
Raila says that he is ready to hold talks with the Head of State to discuss the way forward after he bowed out of the October 26th repeat election on Tuesday.
Speaking in a morning interview on Radio Jambo at his Karen residence on Wednesday, the National Super Alliance leader, however, downplayed speculations that he is pushing for a coalition government with 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,” He said.
Raila also criticized the decision by the government to withdraw his security and that of his running mate Kalonzo Musyoka, terming it a clear pointer that President Kenyatta’s administration did not want him to participate in the fresh election.
“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.
Raila is scheduled to travel to the United Kingdom on Wednesday evening for a public lecture.
