The national dialogue between the Azimio and Kenya Kwanza political coalitions will kick off Wednesday at the Bomas of Kenya, this is according to the team leaders of the two coalitions, Wiper party leader Kalonzo Musyoka and National Assembly majority leader Kimani Ichung’wa.

“Tutapatana hapo Bomas tukae chini tuongee mambo ya mwananchi wa kawaida na tumesema ajenda zile tano rais ulituambia twende tuongee...”stated Ichungwa.

“It is now settled that we will meet at Bomas, Wednesday at 11;30. Today and tomorrow we are doing internal consultations," said the Wiper leader.

The meeting is set to unlock the stalemate that has seen the two sides hardline their stances over various issues raised by the opposition, among them the reduction of the cost of living, audit of the 2022 elections, reconstitution of the IEBC, and respect for political parties.

However, according to the Kenya Kwanza list of issues prioritized, the re-constitution of IEBC, implementation of two-thirds gender rule in parliament, inclusion of the CDF in the Constitution, and creation of the office of the leader of the opposition form their main agenda for the talks.

Among issues that will kick start the meeting is the period the talks will take since the Azimio team has already settled on the end of August, failure to which they threatened to head back to the streets.

The Azimio dialogue team includes Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka, Minority Leader Opiyo Wandayi, Nyamira Senator Okongo Omogeni, Malindi MP Amina Mnyazi, DAP-Kenya counterpart Eugine Wamalwa.

Their Kenya Kwanza counterparts include; National Assembly Majority Leader Kimani Ichung’wa, Kericho Senator Aaron Cheruiyot, Embu Governor Cecily Mbarire, EALA MP Hassan Omar, and Bungoma Woman Rep Catherine Wambilianga.

The dialogue is a significant step forward for the country hence the leaders have been urged to put the country's interests first.
