Opposition leader Raila Odinga is meeting retired President Mwai Kibaki in Nairobi at this hour.

Mr Odinga is accompanied by his legal advisor Mr Paul Mwangi, who is also the co-chairman of the team drawing up the terms of reference of the “handshake” deal between him and President Uhuru Kenyatta.

“Raila is going to meet the retired President,” Mr Mwangi told Nation on phone without giving further details.

Nation however learnt independently that Mr Odinga would brief the retired president on his new engagement with President Kenyatta.

“It is about the handshake, a lot is going on and he wants to brief Mzee Kibaki as much,” said a source close to the opposition leader.

The meeting comes only a week after Mr Odinga held similar talks with Mzee Kibaki’s predecessor, retired president Daniel Moi at the latter’s Kabarak home in Nakuru county.
