Kilifi governor Amason Kingi has broken his silence on last week  meeting between President Uhuru Kenyatta and ODM Party  leader Raila Odinga where the two agreed for national dialogue.

According to Kingi,  last Friday meeting is a relief to the country that has been under political anxiety for months following last year's controversial presidential election.

The ODM governor  while welcoming the Uhuru-Raila re-union urged the former Prime Minister not to surrender on electoral reforms agenda.

He said that giving up on reforms will be committing political suicde on behalf of the country.

Kingi said that the country is bleeding and the push for electoral reforms should remain on course.

“We welcome the truce between the two leaders but urge Raila Odinga to ensure that the course on electoral reforms remain alive,” he said as quoted by an local daily on Tuesday.

Governor Kingi said that Kenyans have  hope in the NASA push for reforms and that the promises the opposition principals gave to supporters must be fulfilled.

The Kilifi governor also asked Raila to ensure that NASA remains intact.

He said that a lot of investment has been done in the coalition and it will be embarrassing if it collapses without acheiving its agenda.

Kingi appealed to Kenyans to remain steadfast and firm in protecting the constitution and rule of law.

President Uhuru Kenyatta's meeting with Raila last week continues to attract reactions across the divide.

On Monday, NASA principal's held a summit meeting in Athi-River where they agreed to push for wider national unity , reconciliation and reforms in the country.

A section of politicians allied to Kalonzo Musyoka, Musalia Mudavadi and Moses Wetangula are, however, not happy maintaining that the former Prime Minister betrayed their trust by agreeing to meet Uhuru without the Knowledge of co-principal's.

The politicians now want inclusivity in national dialogue and  reconciliation talks.
