• Prior, Ichung’wah has been very vocal on his stand against any bi-partisan talks between Azimio and Kenya Kwanza.
• Ichung'wah urged the Azimio coalition to allow the country move on past elections as they are long gone.
National Assembly majority leader Kimani Ichung’wah has said the Kenya Kwanza team is ready to dialogue with Azimio Chief Raila Odinga.
" In the Kenya Kwanza government, we are committed to talks and we have put all our issues on the table and we have asked our friends bring your issues to the table," he said on Friday.
The Kikuyu MP said they are willing to hold a discussion on anything other than the idea of a handshake.
" Except one issue that we are not ready to discuss, handshake, nusu mkate. That is an issue that the people of Kenya settled on August 9 through the general election," Ichung'wah said.
He emphasized that there will be no time to discuss issues around handshake and nusu mkate.
Discussions will be centered on issues that concern the people of Kenya.
"Whether it is what they call electoral justice, the constitution of IEBC. We have said we have no interest in Kenya Kwanza in deciding who will be the commissioner of IEBC. We have no interest in controlling the panel that will recruit commissioners," Ichung'wah said.
Prior, Ichung’wah has been very vocal on his stand against any bi-partisan talks between Azimio and Kenya Kwanza.
The Majority leader said the Kenya Kwanza team is also interested that the country holds free and fair elections in the future.
On the issue of IEBC servers, Ichung'wah said that Azimio should table the request in Parliament, not just talking about it.
He said Kenya Kwanza is ready to listen to Azimio.
" Bring it to the table, and we will discuss it. If there is a way, we will see because we have nothing to hide. We are confident, we are certain we won the last general elections and we have nothing to fear," Ichung'wah added.
In addition, the MP urged the Azimio coalition to allow the country to move on, past elections as they are long gone.
" Even as we engage in the talks, please do so in good faith. Don't blackmail the country with violence and anarchy. Allow us to engage in the issues that are of concern to the people of Kenya," he told the Azimio coalition.
