NARC Kenya Party leader has dismissed President William Ruto's appeal for discussion to address critical national concerns, accusing them of trying to hijack the young people's movement.

 "Dialogue can only be meaningful if the players are in good faith and guided by the best interests of the people." Said Karua.

"Let’s be careful as the political class lest we hijack the genuine clamour for accountability and reforms by the GenZ. I agree with those who say Action Now on the clear and attainable demands of the GenZ to enhance accountability and make the state work for the masses rather than for a handful elites," Karua said.

"This is a trap period," she explained.

 Eugene Wamalwa, on the other side, stated that he would not board, implying that he rejects demands for discussion.

Their reaction comes hours after Ruto, backed by former prime minister Raila Odinga, announced a six-day multi-sectoral dialogue forum beginning Monday, July 15, to discuss issues affecting Kenyans.

The head of state stated that the forum would include representatives from political parties, religious organizations, civic society, employers, and youth.

“In the interest of making sure we live within our means; all participants will bear their attendance costs. This is a result of consultations we have held this morning,” he said.

The President said the meeting "will propose a way forward for the country."
