Responding to this development, Kuria, known for his strong criticism of Raila Odinga, expressed his support for the resumption of bipartisan talks between the ruling Kenya Kwanza Coalition and the opposition’s Azimio La Umoja Coalition.

Taking to his Twitter account, he hailed this progress as a positive step for investments and the overall economy, signaling a potential reduction in political tensions.

“The resumption of bipartisan talks is good news for Investments and the economy in general. Violence is not the way to resolve political differences,”

He said

Kuria stated that the violence witnessed during the anti government protests was not a viable means to resolve political differences in the country.

“It’s time to pull together as a nation with a strong government and even stringer opposition to keep us in check. To my bosses William Ruto and Raila Odinga you are on the RIGHT side of history,”

He however cautioned against repeating the Nusu mkate agreement which involved the opposition and the ruling party sharing government positions as was witnessed in the country before.

“All Kenyans are behind you for as long as we do not create another Mongrel like the Nusu Mkate confusion,”

Kuria and Odinga had been at loggerheads following the recent anti-government demonstrations.

He had accused Odinga of attempting to destabilize the country through protests, and he had been clear about his opposition to any dialogue between President Ruto and the opposition leader, fearing that Odinga might seek a share of government power.
