Central Organization of Trade Unions Secretary General Francis Atwoli is now appealing to President William Ruto to come together and discuss how to help the county move forward.
Atwoli says the two protagonists are the only persons who will be able to see to it that the country gets out of the mess it is in now especially economically, arguing that the bipartisan talks between Kenya Kwanza and Azimio will not help nor bear fruits, unless and otherwise the two principals meet and discuss.
Atwoli, however, says he is not calling for a political ‘handshake’ between the two, but a lasting solution for the ills that are currently bedeviling the country.
This comes after the Azimio side of the Bipartisan Talks Committee sitting from Bomas of Kenya suspended discussions for seven days, citing differences and a lack of goodwill from the Kenya Kwanza side.
The Azimio team led by MP Otiende Amollo (Rarieda, ODM) said while they had acceded to a number of conditions by Kenya Kwanza, including suspension of demonstrations and avoiding remarks that could jeopardise the talks, the government side has not ceded an inch.
