DATED 30TH APRIL 2017
As we begin the fresh round of political negotiation in our country, leading to the August 2022 General Election, I have been compelled to release the above document, in order to answer in part, some of the criticism that has been labelled against me to wit; “The indecisive Kingmaker” and the often quoted statement made before the NTV Reporter, to the effect that I would be a fool to support Hon. Raila A. Odinga a third time, without a measure of reciprocity.
In releasing this document, it is imperative to mention that I have tried twice to have Prof. Makau Mutua convene a meeting between me and my brother Hon. Raila Odinga in his capacity as the depository of this most important document; On his part, Prof. Makau stands in breach of his obligation under the Agreement since he has joined Hon. Raila’s campaign team.
By accepting nomination of the Orange Democratic Movement to run as president for the 5th time, I believe my brother Hon. Raila Odinga has committed an irreparable material breach of this Agreement – defined as “irreparable material breach” shall mean a repudiation, reneging, a violation or an ouster in any way of any of Articles of Agreement.
Attending the ODM delegates Conference at which my brother was named a presidential candidate would have meant acquiescence of the impugned breach.
I wish therefore to state as follows:-
My brother has the option of abiding by the terms of this live binding, legal Agreement and thereby emerging as a true, national, regional and indeed continental Democratic hero
He chooses to act in utter defiance and repudiation of the Agreement, and thereby compound the trust deficit.
In both cases, he remains a brother with whom, I have labored in absolute good faith, to bring true democratic change to our county.
As already publicly expressed, I am ready to work with him again under the Three pillar, Grand Coalition Government, for the sake of our great nation.
I urge that as we engage in fresh negotiations this document forms the basis for such negotiation.
I urge political leaders and all leaders to remain true to their written commitments for this sets a good example to present and future
The NASA Coalition should not have collapsed had the partner parties and in particular ODM remained committed to the letter and spirit of the Coalition Agreement.
