CORD leader Raila Odinga has accused President Uhuru Kenyatta of recruiting Mungiki ahead of 2017 polls. Speaking to Human Rights bodies in his Upper Hill office, Mr. Odinga said President Kenyatta is using the second liquor generation crackdown as a platform to recruit youth from Central Kenya.
According to Raila, the President has sensed defeat and he is using his attack-dogs Gatundu South Member of Parliament hon. Moses Kuria and Kabete Member of Parliament hon. Ferdinand Waititu to train goons in readiness for 2017 response to election loss.
“What is going on in Central Kenya has nothing to do with illicit liquor crackdown. We have all seen how youths are armed with machetes, Rungus. If you want to destroy second generation liquor, why would one need a machete or an axe?” Said the former Prime Minister.
“I therefore ask the CID, Director of Public Prosecutions and other relevant investigating authorities to move with speed and debacle the entire snafu that is likely to sink this country and take it back to 2007. The people’s inalienable rights to elect a leader of their choice under a peaceful, free, fair and credible elections must not be stolen from them” Added Mr. Odinga.
Raila has promised to issue a press conference in the course of the week to address the issue fully.
