Nairobi, Kenya. Former Prime Minister Raila Odinga has today dared Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto to try and arrest him and meet the wrath of the people.
Speaking while addressing thousands of youth – who cheered him all the way – at Kamkunji grounds, the Premier reminded the President and his deputy that he knows well all corners of Kamiti and he is afraid of going back there.
“I am daring Uhuru and Ruto to try and arrest me. I want to tell President Uhuru to stop intimidating me and tell Kenyans what the Eurobond money did since Kenyans cannot see any mega projects, 275billion is a lot of money”
“I also want to advise the Deputy President to have some manners and know how to mind his language. I know none of the two has been to prison and they just hear about it. I know all corners of Kamiti maximum prison. I am not scared of being arrested but they should show Kenyans the projects that were funded by the Eurobond money”
Uhuru should know that I have never been cowed and I am not ready to start now. He should know that I have been arrested a dozen times. Let them try to arrest me and they’ll know how it feels to touch a bee at the back” Said Raila.
CORD principal Kalonzo Musyoka said that Raila will not obey EACC summons tomorrow. cautioned that summoning Raila to EACC is tantamount summoning three quarters of the Kenyan population.
It however remains to be seen the step EACC will take after Raila fails to honour the summons.
The people who attended Kamukunji are said to be 10 times the number of the population that attended yesterday’s Jamuhuru Day at Nyayo stadium.
