Jubilee had ‘planned dialogue conference’ ahead of Cord push

0

The government has put on hold a national conference  that had apparently been planned even before the opposition Cord demanded a national dialogue.

A statement released Sunday by State House in response to inquiries by the Nation revealed that the conference dubbed “National Rebirth: Actualising the Transformation of Kenya” had been postponed after the whole issue became politicised.

State House spokesman Manoah Esipisu said the conference was first proposed by President Uhuru Kenyatta in January as part of the Jubilee Coalition’s social transformation agenda.

“However, after the politicisation of the conference, it has now been postponed indefinitely,” Mr Esipisu said.

Opposition leader Raila Odinga and his Cord alliance partner Kalonzo Musyoka was among those to be invited to address the conference, according to Mr Esipisu.

Others were Amani Coalit
