Uhuru, Alai In Rare Statehouse Meeting
Blogger Robert Alai on Wednesday joined Uhuru Kenyatta in State House for the State House Energy Summit.
The summit was attended members of the public, stakeholders, heads of energy parastatals as well as the Energy Cabinet Secretary and his Principal Secretaries interacted on the latest happenings in the energy sector.
The basic aim of the Summit was to bring the administration and Kenya’s energy consumers a clearer, more coherent picture of energy policy, and its consequences. It is not clear if Alai was the moderator or is a stakeholder.
Uhuru, Alai’s gathering was termed rare by the fact that Alai has been a big critique of Uhuru’s government.
“I never thought I would ever agree with (Robert) Alai, ever.” – President Uhuru Kenyatta was quoted saying during the summit.
“I see my friend
@RobertAlai alikuwa Ikulu leo,” journalist Oliver Mathenge was quoted saying.
