The Kenya National Chamber of Commerce and Industry (KNCCI) Chairman, Kiprono Kittony has added his voice in commending President Uhuru Kenyatta and Opposition leader, Raila Odinga for agreeing to work together for the good of the country.
Kittony who spoke at Olokirikirai area in Narok North Sub-County on Saturday said it was a blessing to the country to have the two leaders who have sharply differed in the past agreeing to work together for the good of the nation.
This is a miracle! The two leaders who have opposed each other in the past have agreed to sit down and agree on how to work together for Kenyans. Yesterday is indeed an historical day in the country, he said.
Hellen Chepkorir, a Narok resident also applauded the two leaders saying the economy of the country is expected to grow and the standards of living improve since the differences between the two leaders that caused frequent demonstrations will end.
She asked the other NASA Principals, Moses Wetangula, Kalonzo Musyoka and Musalia Mudavadi, to join hands with their Coalition leader and agree to work with President Kenyatta for the good of the country.
However, Paul Musila a security guard in Narok felt that the ODM leader had betrayed the Nasa Coalition wondering why he did not involve his co-principals in the negotiations that led to their coming together with President Kenyatta.
We have always followed Odinga because we believed he is the voice of the voiceless, but now his recent action is a betrayal to his followers who voted for him in the last General Elections, he said.
President Kenyatta and ODM party leader on Friday agreed to put their differences aside for the interests of Kenyans.
They agreed to roll out a programme to spearhead their shared objectives revolving around war on corruption, ethnic antagonism, lack of national ethos, inclusivity, devolution and divisive elections.
To implement the programme, the two formed a taskforce, co-chaired by lawyer Paul Mwangi and Ambassador, Martin Kimani.
