Former Presidential candidate Dr. Ekuru Aukot has told President Kenyatta not to accept any dialogue with National Super Alliance (NASA) leader Raila Odinga.
Aukot questioned on what capacity the opposition leader would demand talks with the head of state, when he boycotted the October 26th presidential elections. The Thirdway Alliance party chief said that President Kenyatta will render himself a weak leader should he accept to dialogue with Odinga.
"The NASA leader has no basis on which to dialogue. On what basis does he want to dialogue with the President? If Uhuru accepts dialogue with Raila or any presidential candidate, he will weaken himself. He will be an extremely weak leader."
He added: "Engaging in dialogue that isolates, fixed on an individual who thinks he is important, will weaken the Jubilee government."
In an event of any dialogue, he said, president Kenyatta should engage former presidential candidates.
"Why should Uhuru dialogue with NASA leader Raila Odinga and not Ekuru Aukot or Abduba Dida or Prof Michael Wainaina ? What is so special with Raila that Uhuru must dialogue with him?"
"The guy abandoned the presidential rerun. We need to remove some people's nonsense of entitlement. If Uhuru wants dialogue that can redefine Kenya's political state, let him call on all his worthy competitors, inviting them to discuss how to make Kenya better," he explained.
On constitution of a new Cabinet, Aukot Said: "We have a maximum 22 Cabinet slots. If I were Uhuru, I would pick the 22 CSs from the 22 tribes of Kenya. I would pick the next 22 PSs and another 22 from different tribes."
"If Uhuru does that, he will shut up anybody who says his government is not all-inclusive. He should leave the county governments to run their affairs in their tribal way because there is nothing he can change," Aukot submitted.
