National Assembly Majority Leader Kimani Ichungwah has announced that UDA politicians will not have a say on how the National Dialogue Committee conducts it’s operations.

Ichung’wah is team leader of the Kenya Kwanza side of the committee. The other side is made up of the opposition’s Azimio La Umoja camp. This faction’s team leader is Wiper boss Kalonzo Musyoka.


Ichung’wah has admitted that there are lots of noises being made about the committee and its work in rallies and events, by politicians allied to both sides, but has dismissed their ability to interfere.


But he has said that there should be no fears that such people can influence what happens in the committee, adding that they as committee members will ignore the noise being made outside.


“We will work ignoring all other noise from out there,” the Kikuyu Member of Parliament said at the Bomas of Kenya in Nairobi on Monday, as is quoted by The Standard.


Ichung’wa also expressed goodwill in the talks assuring the public that the talks will go on despite criticisms from those who are against the talks.


National Assembly Minority Leader Opiyo Wandayi, of the Azimio side, said that the committee will be sitting again on Friday, and will be letting the technical committee sit until Thursday.


“The two technical teams representing both sides have continued to engage on the issue of framework agreement and framing of issues. We have agreed that we continue with the work and the technical teams will meet from tomorrow to Thursday. The whole committee will reconvene again on Friday at 10 am,” said the Ugunja lawmaker.


The talks come after Azimio boss Raila Odinga called off his anti-government protests to give dialogue a chance.
