After rebuking US, Raila meets envoys on NASA’s position

Opposition leader Raila Odinga met members of the diplomatic community on Friday, a day after rebuking the US for interference with Kenya.

Raila said on Thursday that Kenyans can solve their own problems so the US should not interfere by asking him to abide by the constitution.

His meeting today comes just days to his controversial swearing-in on December 12.

“Putting forward our position as a coalition to members…We maintain that the will of the people is paramount. #Resist,” the NASA leader tweeted regarding the meeting that took place at Capitol Hill.

US ambassador Robert Godec, who attended, said Kenya must strive to uphold the constitution at all times.

“I stress the need to uphold the constitution. We urge the government, Opposition and all Kenyans to engage in open, transparent national conversation.”

Godec noted this will help address underlying issues and strengthen institutions.

On Thursday, Raila hit out at the US for meddling with Kenya’s affairs saying he does not recognise Uhuru Kenyatta as the President.

He maintained the coalition will not recognise Uhuru’s inauguration following the Supreme Court decision upholding the repeat October 26 election.

“We don’t recognise the swearing-in. We will go by the results of August 8 elections in which Kenyans expressed their will,” he said.
