Other governors are Wycliffe Oparanya of Kakamega, Kericho’s Paul Chepkwony, Kiambu’s Ferdinand Waititu Babayao, Ali Roba of Mandera and Ali Korane of Garissa.

The seven Governors attended the opening ceremony of the fifth edition of the Kenya Inter-Counties Sports and Cultural Association Games at Kenyatta Stadium in Machakos where they agreed to work together.

Mutua said there should be no more bloodshed in the country because of politics. He added that there is need to amend the constitution of Kenya to make the Government all inclusive.

“The culture of the winner takes it all has made some sections of the country feel that they have been left out. The amended constitution should create posts of Prime Minister, Deputy Prime Minister among others,” he said.

Sonko said there was need for the Uhuru-Raila dialogue to reduce the politics of hatred.

“I work with MCAs from both NASA and Jubilee to confirm that we don’t know tribalism,” said Sonko adding that politics should not divide the country.

Ali Roba said Kenya is bigger than any individual including Odinga and Kenyatta.

His sentiments were shared by Garissa’s Korane who added that the two leaders should work towards uniting Kenyans instead of dividing them.

“Talks of session and resistance should not be encouraged by participants or patriotic Kenyans,” Korane stated.

Oparanya said: “Kenya and all her citizens are facing a myriad of problems which can only be solved by sitting together to iron them out. As CoG from both Jubilee and NASA, we shall sit together with our principals to rescue the country. We don’t want any more deaths in Kenya,”

Waititu said nobody will get leadership positions through the back door but he or she must fight through the ballot.
