United States’ new Message to Raila after unity deal with Uhuru

The US has pledged to support Kenya’s unity and peace initiative marked by the handshake by President Uhuru Kenyatta and Opposition leader Raila Odinga.

Raila, who is Nasa chief and ODM leader, announced this on Wednesday following a meeting with ambassador Robert Godec.

“Godec paid me a courtesy call at my office today. We discussed the national reconciliation initiative and how there can be no progress without justice,” he wrote on his social media page.

“The US has pledged to support us as we proceed with the task of righting the wrongs that have ailed us for far too long.”

US President Donald Trump weighed in on Kenya’s political troubles after the government shut down TV stations over Raila’s self-inauguration as the People’s President. At that time, Trump asked the government to ensure media freedom and avoid restrictive and intimidating moves.

Kenya has faced tumultuous times since the disputed August 8, 2017 presidential election, whose outcome Raila objected and termed Uhuru an illegitimate President.

But in a rare show of unity early this month, Uhuru and Raila told Kenyans they had set their differences aside and would work to unite the public.

The duo jointly appointed ambassador Martin Kimani and Paul Mwangi to oversee the bid to unite and heal the country.

They will spearhead matters of ethnic antagonism, lack of national ethos, inclusivity, devolution, divisive elections, security, corruption, shared prosperity and responsibility.
