Raila’s push for a secession ignites a discussion.
Raila’s push for a secession ignites a discussion; Speaking at Kalonzo’s Yatta farm, Opposition leader Raila Odinga urged president to denounce DP Gachagua’s remarks over shareholders, or they will secede.
He stated,”We will write to UN for self-determination so that every Kenyan community can feel completely they are part of the government. If you read Kenya gazette every week, it’s only one region. Kenya has 45 communities, all of them are Kenyans and they are paying taxes.”
However, This has brought mixed reactions from leaders and netizens.
CS Duale states,”Now you want to convince us that your problems will be solved by dividing the nation called Kenya, because of your selfish interest, how hungry you are for power, you can even allow many people to die for you to be announced the president.”
PLO Lumumba stated,” It is most unfortunate that while Citizens of goodwill are working towards EA Integration and African Unity some Kenyan Politicians are talking secession in their quest for political Offices. This megalomania must be condemned.“
The gov’t critic expressed,” NOT YET UHURU! Let’s go into a secession & self determination. Why not? Rigathi Gachagua insists Kenya is private company of Kikuyus & Kalenjins, let’s split Kenya into two. Let the lesser communities deregister from the IEBC & stop paying taxes. Let azimio form a separate go.”
Tache Dida expressed,”Hon Raila’s secession call shldn’t be taken as political theatrics. It’s a treasonous theatrix borne of his unbridled desire to be a President of anything incl a part of KE, a social group or an ethno-political group in KE. Every patriotic Kenyan shld condemn this recklessness.”
