Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Coalition Party, led by Raila Odinga will on Thursday start fresh public engagements.

Raila had announced that the first town hall meeting will take place in Nairobi on Thursday starting at 9 am.

“We shall be at Ufungamano Hall for a multi-sectoral leaders meeting hosted by civil society to discuss important issues affecting our nation,” he said.

Raila said the meeting will include veterans, human rights activists, intellectuals, faith-based organisations, trade unions, farmers’ associations, small businesses and other civil society organisations.

He expressed hopes that the meeting would result in uniting Kenyans, developing a roadmap for national transformation, seeking solutions for national problems and creating a brighter future for current and future generations.

According to former Kakamega Governor Wycliffe Oparanya, the first town hall meeting will be followed by a public baraza at the Kamukunji grounds on Sunday, April 16.

“As the negotiators take up their responsibilities, we will embark on a series of direct engagements with members of the public through town hall meetings and public Baraza’s,” he said.

However, the opposition reiterated its commitment to the truce deal with the Kenya Kwanza administration.

They challenged the government to come to the dialogue table with clean hands for an honest and transparent process to be realised.

“Azimio remains committed to the spirit of the Easter deal that saw the two parties commit to dialogue and call on Kenya Kwanza to come to the table with clean hands, unclenched fists, and a commitment to an honest and transparent process that engages on all the issues bedevilling our country,” Oparanya said.

The public barazas were held across the country before Azimio announced the start of mass protests on March 20, which were halted on April 1 to give way to bi-partisan talks.
