Statehouse operatives were surprised and shocked when visiting South Korean President H.E Geun-hye DEMANDED to meet CORD leader Prime Minister Raila Odinga.
Premier Raila enjoys warm relations with the Seol government and president Geun-hye respects him as global icon. President Geun-hye who seem to have been well briefed by her ambassador is said to have told Uhuru that she doesn’t care what the local politics were BUT she had to meet Raila while in Nairobi.
In October 2015 Prime Minister was in Seol South Korea where he was the Chief Guest at the Korea Unification Drive hosted by the Global Peace Foundation. The former Prime Minister was accompanied by the Governor of Kisii County, H. E James Ongwae.
DP Ruto,Hon Duale and Hawkish Interior CS Joseph Nkisery were left high and dry when president Uhuru placed a call to Raila and requested him to meet his guest at Statehouse. It was embarrassing for Nkaissery to meet his party boss who he has been threatening to arrest if he sets foot in Uhuru Park tomorrow.
Sources close to Duale indicate that the Jubilee majority leader apologised and even joked that Nkaissery was ODM/Raila’s gift to Uhuru; “bwana Prime Minister huyu Masai yako ulitupea ndiye shida”.
Prime Minister Raila is said to have told Nkaissery to talk less and avoid embarrassing himself, he confirmed that he will be at Uhuru park tomorrow and asked Nkaissery to not to sleep until he is satisfied that security is smooth for the CORD brigade.
