“As Kenyans it’s imperative that we go the extra mile to explain the situation we have found ourselves in, so that informed positions may be arrived at and sound decisions made.
I had the pleasure of meeting Gregory Simpkins, Staff Director, U.S. House Subcommittee on Africa, Global Health and Human Rights at the The Africa-America Institute (AAI). Mr. Simpkins is well versed on African affairs having served in a variety of positions in civil society; allowing him to help shape and implement U.S. policy on Africa, including having drafted the African Growth and Opportunity Act (AGOA).
We had a very broad and fruitful discussion in which we shared many points of interest in our search for a solution to Kenya’s political impasse.I explained that at the heart of the problem lies perpetual electoral theft.
The NASA Coalition, driven by our people’s aspirations, is on a quest for electoral justice. We will continue reaching out to all players and stakeholder institutions with the knowledge that we carry a heavy responsibility on behalf of our people. We agreed to keep each other abreast of developments.
I thank him for a very warm welcome and look forward to more engagement in future.”
