The Standard | Online Edition :: Wako: The day I escaped in Kikwete's car Amos Wako said:- "Kikwete and Annan wanted my legal advice on whether an Act of Parliament was enough to underpin the MoU into the Constitution," recalls Wako. Not sure of the Presidents stand on the matter, the AG sought a moment to whisper with his boss. But Kikwete and Annan rejected the idea, demanding he speaks his mind before them. Feeling harassed, Wako tried to shoot a few leading questions to everybody, hopping President Kibaki would pick the signal by giving a leading response. WAKO: "You see, I was in a fix and I needed to gauge his take on the matter, before giving my honest opinion. But the Tanzanian President would hear none of this. He ordered that I give them a straight answer," recounts Wako. To avoid the hostility and questioning from embittered colleagues, particularly from members of the Presidents party, who represented his side at the Serena Hotel talks, Wako jumped into Kikwetes official car as he left for the airport back to Dar es Salaam. He needed to cool off.
