Nairobi Senator Edwin Sifuna has raised concerns over the seriousness of President William Ruto in the bi-partisan talks that seek to find a truce on various issues of concern between the Azimio coalition and the Kenya Kwanza Alliance.
In a tweet on Wednesday, the Senator analysed three issues he deemed as deal breakers even before the bi-partisan talks commence in parliament.
According to Sifuna, gauging President William Ruto's demand that the talks be purely parliamentary is a red flag.
He adds that failure by the regime to do anything to lower the cost of living especially the cost of Unga will most likely break the deal.
The ODM SG also went on to poke holes into the list of 7-member MPs nominated by the Kenya Kwanza Alliance to dialogue Azimio.
He questioned the President's intention when his coalition nominated MP Eldas Adan Keynan as a member of the seven-member team.
"The inclusion of Hon. Keynan in his team is absolute bad faith and a slap in the face," Sifuna said.
Keynan, being a member of the Jubilee party which is still legally under Azimio La Umoja has raised murmurs about whether the talks are genuine.
Others in the Kenya Kwanza team are Majority Whip Boni Khalwale (Kakamega Senator), George Murugara (MP Tharaka), Esther Okenyuri (Nominated Senator), Mwangi Mutuse (MP Kibwezi West), Lydia Haika (Women Rep Taita Taveta) and Hillary Sigei (Senator Bomet).
The Azimio team is led by Sifuna, Narok Senator Ledama Ole Kina and Kitui Senator Enoch Wambua.
The other members are MPs Otiende Amollo (Rarieda), David P'Kosing (Pokot South), Millie Odhiambo (Suba North) and Amina Mnyanzi (Malindi).
