Kivuti gives terms for handshake with Wambora

Kivuti also disputed claims that Deputy President William Ruto had brought him and Wambora to the negotiating table at a Nairobi hotel. “There are rumours and press statements to the effect that there is a planned handshake between Wambora and I. I haven’t received any call from Wambora to invite me to that alleged meeting. If he invites me, I will not mind, but I will not sit with him alone. I’ll insist that he brings along his leaders and I also bring my leaders so that we can talk,” he said. Wambora last week said he would convene a meeting of all Embu leaders on September 29 to bring them on board in transforming the county for the remaining years of his tenure. Kivuti explained his decision to move his petition to the Supreme Court after losing in the Court of Appeal, saying he was driven by an agenda to see the county develop and not just to clinch the county’s top seat. He said the election petition should not be used as an excuse not to develop the county. “No one should claim that the case has impeded development. The case hearing takes just a single day,” he said.
