Kenya Kwanza leaders unafraid of Raila’s threats, says MP Ndindi Nyoro
Kiharu MP Ndindi Nyoro, a close ally of President William Ruto, has dismissed Raila Odinga’s threats to organize more demonstrations, saying that Kenya Kwanza leaders are not afraid of the Azimio La Umoja Coalition leader.
According to Ndindi, Raila is dealing with “sons of Mau Mau” who are battle-hardened and not easily intimidated.
He further said that Kenya Kwanza leaders had informed Raila of his impending defeat long before the August elections, even though he had the support of the former regime.
“We told him we would defeat him but he did not listen to us. Kenyans came together in that fight, and it was not a physical fight, it was a political war,” Ndindi said while speaking at Technology Primary School on Saturday.
He went on to say that their respect for the country prohibits them from engaging in shouting matches with Raila, and the only reason they have not been engaging with him is that they are busy implementing programs for the benefit of Kenyans.
“Let me tell you the truth. Yes, we are fighters. We are Mau Mau but we chose which battles to engage in. We fight real battles like the one that was there in August. Sio hiyo ya Kurushiana mawe,” Ndindi said.
Ndindi also joined his counterparts in reiterating that the Kenya Kwanza government will not engage in dialogue on government sharing, saying that Raila should wait for 2027 to try his luck again.
National Assembly Majority Leader Kimani Ichung’wah echoed Ndindi’s sentiments, saying that the government is only ready to dialogue on matters that appertain to the livelihoods of Kenyans.
“If you want to dialogue with us on how to bring down the cost of living without blackmail, we are ready to dialogue. What we’re not ready to dialogue on is anything that’s outside the constitution, for you to blackmail the country through anarchy to safeguard your selfish ends,” Ichung’wah said.
