It has come into the public attention that President Uhuru Kenyatta held talks with former prime minister Raila Odinga two days before he paid retired president Daniel Arap Moi a courtesy call at his Kabarak home in Nakuru County, on Saturday, July 28, 2018.
More information of the president’s closed-door meeting with Hon Raila Odinga on Thursday, July 26, remain unknown in details with sources close to the private sit-down only intimating the late night talks lasted for about full fours hours.
Unconfirmed reports seen by exposeke.com on Sunday, July 29, indicated the Mombasa meeting, which was reportedly held at Vipingo Ridge in Kilifi County, was about a looming Cabinet reshuffle.
According to reports from the State House, the president wanted to spend some time away from his office in Nairobi and decided to travel to the coast on July 23.
The former prime minister, Raila, on the other hand reportedly flew to the coast to open his new home in Nyali before he joined Uhuru at Vipingo Ridge.
Exposeke.com understands the president dropped by Mois on his way to attend funeral of Lieutenant General Joseph Kasaon’s wife, Sarah Kasaon.
Uhuru’s meeting with Moi comes barely two months after Deputy President William Ruto’s attempt to meet the former Head of State failed.
The president’s meetings with Moi and Raila are likely to trigger fresh political jitters within the ruling Jubilee party and especially on Deputy President William Ruto’s camp.
