Human rights organization, Haki Africa has called for the initiation of negotiations between National Super Alliance (NASA) and the Jubilee leadership in a bid to unlock the current state of uncertainty in the country. Haki Africa Executive Director Hussein Khalid said an urgent national dialogue is needed to resolve the political stalemate as the current state of uncertainty in the country is causing more harm than good.
He called for urgent national dialogue that will bring together all the key actors in the current political stalemate in the country. Hussein pointed out that a neutral actor, such as the international community, should convene the dialogue and ensure all parties are engaged and brought to the table.
“Political parties, IEBC, media, civil society and religious leaders must be at the core of this dialogue to unlock the stalemate,” said Hussein. He said economically it is becoming difficult by the day for an average citizen to put food on the table, whereas socially, Kenyans have been divided by politicians who have continued to incite the public. The stalemate in the country was brought about following the nullification of the August 8 presidential election by the Supreme Court.
