DP William Ruto has urged NASA principals not to take hardline stances against their leader Raila Odinga.
Ruto said Friday’s meeting between President Uhuru Kenyatta and Raila should not be criticized because it was for the common good of the country.
He asked Kalonzo Musyoka, Musalia Mudavadi and Moses Wetangula to play a leading role in the country’s unity process and the transformation agenda.

“I want to tell those who are yet to join us to come so that we can take this country forward,” Ruto said.
In a joint statement on Friday, the three co-principals said they were not informed about the meeting between Raila and Uhuru.
On Saturday, Mudavadi dismissed the unity deal saying NASA advocated for dialogue on national issues and not talks between two individuals.
Kalonzo said his heart was at peace with the deal and that he had been vindicated for calling for dialogue since last year.
