Gema Community lauds Uhuru and Raila talks

Gema leaders have lauded the Uhuru-Raila pact, stating that it aims at reflecting and acting on ethnic hatred.

The Gema Chairman, Lawi Imathiu said those challenges should be discussed by families, at the intra-community and inter-community levels, as reflected in the constitution.

Gema sentiments comes soon after Uhuru and Raila held talks at Harambee House on Friday, last week, and formed a team to lead talks on the unity pact.

Imathiu said Gema acknowledges and endorsed the selflessness of the two leaders and their display of the kind of enlightened world class leadership.

We endorse their call to reflect on lack of national ethos, exclusivity, devolution, safety and security, shared prosperity, responsibility and rights, Imathiu said.

Imathiu said the move by the two arch-rivals, President Uhuru Kenyatta and his main challenger, Raila Odinga to come together to unite the country, was long overdue.

He explained that Kenya is a Nation made up of people with long and established histories of building cultures that have powerful tools of reflection, collaboration and the resolution of differences, which should emulate Uhuru and Raila in resolving differences.

He was accompanied by Nairobi Business Community Chairman, Wilfred Kamau, and former Provincial Commissioner, Joseph Kaguthi, among other officials.

He said Kenyans should take advantage of the new beginning, by embracing the unique and historic window of opportunity the two leaders have opened.
