We listened and asked questions.

The former Senior Presidential Advisor said this is exactly what the lobby group Friends of Uhuru Kenyatta Caucus advocated all along previous year.

"These initial 100 Kenyans will undoubtedly return home well-equipped to trigger advances in Agriculture that will promote Job Creation and Food Security", said the President.

Even though details of the meeting remained scanty, sources privy to the discussions told the Daily Nation that Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka, Ford-Kenya's Moses Wetang'ula, and Amani National Congress' Musalia Mudavadi pressed Mr Odinga, who is also leader of the Orange Democratic Movement, to explain why he kept them in the dark over his meeting with the President.

"A more elaborate briefing will be given to the media and indeed the nation in the coming days".

Who is David Solomon? Goldman banker moves closer to top role
In the years ahead, a priority for Solomon, if he indeed succeeds Blankfein as CEO, will be the rivalry between the US and China. Solomon will become sole president and chief operating officer of Goldman Sachs as of April 20, the company said Monday.

On October 15, Mr Kabando and several NASA MPs said they would lead the negotiations to address any disputes on how the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) would conduct the October 26 polls.

The People's Assembly steering committee chairman and NASA strategist David Ndii, said the decision was made to provide room to unify and get the country on the right course. "We are therefore in this spirit suspending the people's assembly process".

Fourteen of the 47 counties adopted motions for their formation despite vehement opposition from the Attorney General Githu Muigai who viewed them as unconstitutional outfits and even moved to court to have them declared so.

The envoys urged Mr Odinga to "accept the fact that Uhuru Kenyatta and William Ruto are the legitimate President and Deputy of Kenya" after the Supreme Court upheld their election on October 26 past year.
