Self-declared National Resistance Movement (NRM) general Miguna Miguna has reacted to the decision by National Super Alliance (Nasa) leader Raila Odinga to work with President Kenyatta.
In a statement to the press on Friday, the former Nairobi gubernatorial aspirant appeared to have been angered by the move by Odinga and accused him of betrayal.
“I have been advised of media reports that the People’s President, Raila Amolo Odinga has “reconciled” with the despotic president Uhuru Kenyatta,” Miguna stated.
He continued: “I understand that Mr Odinga has further stated that the “conflict is over” and called on the country to reconcile and move on. Mr Odinga’s unilateral, irrational and erratic decision to betray the fight for electoral justice, the culture of impunity and the flagrant abuse of human rights that have become routine under the illegitimate regime of Uhuru Kenyatta and William Ruto cannot be justified.”
Miguna, who was dramatically deported to Canada by Immigration authorities on February 6th for his role in the mock swearing in of Odinga on January 30th, further questioned why the opposition chief would reconcile with President Kenyatta, even after hundreds of his supporters were last year killed by the Jubilee government.
“Between July 2017 to the present, Uhuru Kenyatta and William Ruto have murdered more than 380 innocent civilians in cold blood.These martyrs were butchered by agents of the illegitimate Jubilee administration they were perceived to be “supporters” of Raila Odinga.”
“As Raila Odinga and Uhuru Kenyatta toast, hug and laugh in Nairobi, I remain marooned in Canada because I swore the former in at Uhuru Park on January 30th, 2018.”
He vowed to return to the country and stage a fight against the Jubilee administration despite the “betrayal” by Raila.
“I will return to Kenya on March 26, 2018 so as to continue the struggle for electoral justice, social justice and an end to the culture of impunity that both Raila Odinga and Uhuru Kenyatta now clearly represent.”
“I will join forces with all progressive forces in bringing about concrete, substantive and fundamental structural and institutional changes that Kenyans deserve.”
