Many are asking why Oburu skipped the meeting, yet the ardent ODM die-hard humbled himself before the Jubilee bigwigs for the support of their MPs to join the hotly contested East African Legislative Assembly. Oburu’s absence has elicited varied reactions; some say his presence would have been a betrayal to NASA, which has said it does not recognize Uhuru’s presidency. Others say, hilariously, that Raila barred him from going to State House.   was who said that tricks and treachery are the practice of fools that don't have brains enough to be honest. Well, some Kenyan elites seem to have learnt nothing from the saying. Sources tell Corridors that some powerful people bought large tracts of land to push for the construction of the second phase of the SGR on it. Maybe the President was aware of it or not.
