Uproar as Raila threatens to continue with the mass action.
Uproar as Raila threatens to continue with the mass action. This comes after fingers were pointed to him for trying to sabotage bi-partisan talks.
Expressing himself was UDA’s secretary general , Malala who stated that it is now clear, Raila’s protests were not genuine from the beginning .
He stated,”Hon Raila Odinga, in his statement, has confirmed our worst fears that Maadamano, was in fact not genuine from the onset but a blatant thirst and hunger for power through the back door. In making these unreasonable demands, Mr Odinga has demonstrated his intention to hold the bipartisan Parliamentary process as suggested by the President at ransom.”
Malala further warned Raila for thinking that when the president took the high road and called for dialogue, was a sign of cowardice.
He stated,”He should not mistake the President’s olive branch in this holy month as a sign of cowardice.”
This comes after Raila Odinga, Yesterday, stated that his demands should be addressed by a bi-partisan team in Parliament, instead calling for a process similar to the National Accord of 2008.
Malala opposed,”We want to categorically state that, we as a party, shall not accept any process that is outside the purview of the constitution or offends the law as established.”
MDG party also opposed the demand saying parliament has the capacity to deal with his demand.
MDG party stated,”MDG is thus perturbed by the demand by Azimo leader Mr. Raila Odinga for adoption of a process akin to the 2008 National Accord in resolving the issues at hand.”
“We flatly reject this outrageous demand. It’s baffling to see Azimio threatening fire and brimstone should Parliament be involved. This is ridiculous and a display of disdain Azimio leadership has for parliament,” they added.
