Nairobi Senator Johnson Sakaja has revealed his planned meeting with at least 50 members of parliament from both Jubilee and NASA before the presidential polls repeat.

He said the intention of the meeting to be held before the fresh elections is to discuss the way forward for the country's leadership from a view of the legislative change they seek to influence.

"I will meet the leaders so that we can discuss key leadership issues without looking at our political affiliation but our role as youthful leaders," said Sakaja.

He added that the leaders, among them Embakasi East MP Babu Owino have a good influence of the country's youth.

He said family dynasty politics had put Kenya in a hard place with repeated battles between the top families over the years.
