"Neither we, the US nor more moderate advisers have an easy way of accessing him. We are trying intermediaries. First, we need to send William Hague as the high ranking diplomat to President Kibaki," it said, unmasking the unstated reasons for Hagueâs visit to Kenya.
Kilonzo added: "The visit was not in good faith. It was a conspiracy."
He posed: "Is the British Government a friendly state? Is it a process to bring down the Kenyan government?" posed the MP.
Turkana Central MP Ekwe Ethuro said the letter also suggested the ICC President would be roped in the conspiracy. Isiolo South MP Abdul Bahari asked Wetangula whether Kenya would consider severing diplomatic ties with the UK.
Deputy Speaker Farah Maalim, however, halted debate on the matter, citing the Standing Orders that require that a substantive motion be issued first before adversely discussing a friendly nation and its representatives.
Maalim added that such a motion required a three-day notice. Begot MP Charles Keter rallied members to reject a motion to extend sittings of the House to conclude House business.
The import of the rejection is that it aborted a scheduled motion to adjourn the House until April 10. The House resumes sittings next Tuesday and apparently members are determined to press on with the matter.
Ikolomani MP Bonny Khalwale read a section of the letter quoting UK officials lamenting Raila faces hurdles to the presidency.
"It is unlikely for him to make it without our support," Khalwale read from the document.
Khalwale added the letter cast aspersions against the Speaker, who is reported to have had a conversation with the UK official who interpreted the Speaker to have been suggesting a possible General Election as early as December.
"We consider this a big blow to Railaâs candidacy, since he is seen as having compromised the ICC cases. The memory will be fresh on the confirmation of charges. It is unlikely for him to make it without our support," Khalwale cited the letter.
