On his part, the former Prime Minster said that they are letting “by-gones be by-gones” all in the spirit of reconciliation.

“Held a meeting with Governor Anne Waiguru and agreed to “let by-gones be by-gones” and leave the matter of the NYS scandal in the hands of investigators. She said her case against me is now settled in the spirit of reconciliation that the nation has embarked on,” Odinga stated.

They also discussed matters devolution with Odinga affirming his support for it.

“We also reviewed the status of devolution in the country and agreed to exchange views frequently on how to address the challenges,” he added.

Their dispute arose in 2015 when Odinga and his party members called for her prosecution when she served as the Devolution CS for the loss of Sh769 million in the first NYS saga.

She accused Odinga of tarnishing her name. The latter also sought to have the county boss subjected to a lifestyle audit.
