Take advantage of the rains to plant, desist from the mass action- ODM rebels.
The seven Orange democratic movement party rebels, have urged Kenyans to go on with their duties and not give heed to the mass action call.
The seven who spoke at Parliament Buildings included Gideon Ochanda (Bondo), Mark Nyamita (Uriri), Caroli Omondi (Suba South), Paul Abuor (Rongo), Elisha Odhiambo (Gem), Phelix ‘Jalang’o’ Odiwuor (Lang’ata) and Senator Tom Ojienda (Kisumu).
They swore that they won’t take part of the demonstration because it is a work day and Kenya can not afford people boycotting work.
They stated,”We firmly believe that Kenya’s current economic challenges will not be resolved by political confrontation and other forms of political partisanship.”
“It is time to have a National Economic Dialogue to find solutions to our collective economic challenges. Let our political competition be at the level of competing economic ideas,” they added.
The lawmakers called upon their constituents to focus on matters development, if the economy of Kenya is to get any better.
They stated,”We equally urge our constituents to do likewise. Let our political competition be at the level of competing economic ideas.”
They however, stated that anyone who wants to join in on the demonstration, should do so freely. They urged Azimio allies to be very peaceful even as they air their grievances.
They stated,”We appreciate that such actions are essential to advancing our democracy. It is our firm belief that such demonstrations must be peaceful and orderly, and not injure the rights and property of others,
“We encourage those who will join the demonstrations to return to their normal economic and social activities as soon as possible, especially those who engage in farming, to take advantage of the current rains to plough and plant,” they added.
