The Speaker of the National Assembly, Kimani Ichung'wah, has assured Kenyans that the decision of the National Dialogue Committee (NADCO) will immediately resolve the country's long-standing problems.


The Kikuyu MP revealed that he advised on various issues, including electoral management, an economic recovery plan, and the cost of living, among other sensitive issues affecting the country at present. Ichung'wah said the committee decided to put their differences aside and put the country's interests before the interests of all Kenyans.


“We have consulted on all matters before us for the benefit of all our people. We discussed and agreed on how we can move our country forward," Ichung'wah said during a fundraiser at Mbeka ACK in Bondo district.


The majority leader said that the purpose of the national dialogue process is to fight political hatred in this country. He added, "We want to develop a society where our political competition will not be a place of enmity or hatred."


On his part, Suba South Member of Parliament Caroli Omondi called for the peaceful implementation of the NADCO report. While commending the National Dialogue Committee for its good work, Omondi reiterated that there is still time to implement these recommendations to solve the problems affecting the country.


NADCO, under the leadership of Ichung'wah and the leader of the Wiper Party, Kalonzo Musyoka, gave its advice on Saturday after four months of discussions and negotiations with various stakeholders. Among the things they raised was the need to reduce the travel budget of various government departments by 50% and suggested a 30% reduction in daily allowance for state and government employees to raise the challenge of local currency.


Apparently, he also proposed to create the office of the Prime Minister and the leader of the government opposition and to increase the deadline for petitions for the presidential election from 14 to 21 days. He also suggested the reorganisation and restructuring of the IEBC and the review of the 2022 electoral process.
