Northeastern leaders blast Raila’s new plan to oust Ruto
Northeastern leaders have criticised Azimio leader Raila Odinga’s latest plan to gather 10 million signatures to remove President William Ruto from office.
The leaders have expressed their disapproval saying they will counter the plan.
Garissa Township MP Dekow Mohamed condemned the move and warned that such actions might lead the opposition leader to “commit treason”.
“The constitution of Kenya is very clear, and we are the majority at the Assembly, Raila shouldn’t waste the time of the Kenyans for an agenda that’s selfish and non-existent,” Dekow said.
His sentiments were echoed by Ijara MP who said legislators will formulate a bill to regulate demonstrations in the country.
He said the proposed legislation would seek to establish a framework that will hold individuals accountable for their actions, particularly those who engage in acts of disruption and property vandalism.
“Please I want my speaker Moses Wetangula to give us a nod we finalize that bill once and for all. So that every person who destructs business carries their cross. And we will pass it in a blink of an eye,” he said.
Speaking on Sunday during a UDA party event aimed at gaining popularity in Norther-Eastern Kenya, UDA Secretary General Cleophas Malala, called out Raila Odinga, describing him as a self-centered leader solely pursuing a Nusu-Mkate Government.
However, Malala urged Raila to respect the Kenyan constitution, emphasizing that Raila himself played a part in its creation.
“Raila Odinga is conspiring to overthrow the government; we will not allow that. Plotting to overthrow the government is a grave offense,” he said.
