DP Ruto's message to Kalonzo Mudavadi and Wetangula

The government and the opposition national super alliance were today moving to action some of the agreements reached during Friday's meeting between president Kenyatta and NASA leader Raila Odinga with the latter suspending the people's assembly agenda.

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.

While announcing the formation of the People's Assemblies late previous year, Odinga said the formation will be a broad based forum consisting of elected leaders and the leadership of other sectors of society in particular workers, civil society, religious leaders, women, youth and economic interest groups.

"A man can only take blackmail for so long", the source said.

They said they only learnt of it via the media and demanded a blow-by-blow account of what transpired at Harambee House on Friday last week.

House declares no evidence of Trump-Russia collusion found, closes investigation
The House Intelligence Committee has finished all of its interviews in its congressional Russian Federation investigation.

The brewing rift within Nasa coalition seems to have reached the county level after Nairobi MCAs allied to ODM dared their coalition partners to walk out of the coalition if they feel aggrieved.

"Odinga's unilateral flight into the Jubilee Party corner is true to his surprise-and-attack style of politics", Mr Muluka said, adding that even though Monday's meeting had been prearranged, only three of the principals would attend, suggesting that Mr Odinga was not welcome.

The threat came days after Mr Odinga said he had been betrayed.

The meeting comes amid concerns of a fallout in the coalition, with political pundits saying the move by Mr. Odinga to hold a parley with Kenyatta was a culmination of the perceived betrayal by his co-principals who skipped his mock swearing-in ceremony in January.

During an ODM national governing council meeting early this month, the party told its allies in the coalition that it was ready to go it alone if pushed.
