Politician Miguna Miguna has termed President Uhuru Kenyatta and NASA leader Raila Odinga’s Friday meeting as “unilateral, irrational and erratic.”
The no-holds barred Miguna, whose reaction many were waiting for after the Harambee House meeting, did not disappoint with his statement.
“I have been advised of media reports that the People’s President, Raila Amolo Odinga has ‘reconciled’ with the despotic president Uhuru Kenyatta. I understand that Mr Odinga has further stated that the ‘conflict is over’ and called on the country to ‘reconcile and move on.’”
Miguna, who is one of the leaders of NRM, an arm of NASA said Mr. Odinga has betrayed his supporters many of whom died fighting for him.
“The ‘reconciliation’ between Uhuru Kenyatta and Raila is a fundamental betrayal of the hundreds of innocent Kenyans who have lost their lives fighting for democracy and in defense of Raila Odinga’s stolen electoral victories of 2007, 2013 and 2017,” read his statement which he posted on his Facebook page.
Miguna, who was deported to Canada after he was involved in Mr. Odinga’s mock oath, says the two leaders now represent “a culture of impunity.”
“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… I am here against my will. I am here despite the fact that I have a birthright to be in Kenya…” he said.
“I will return to Kenya on March 26, 2018 so as to continue the struggle for electoral justice and the culture of impunity that both Raila Odinga and Uhuru Kenyatta now represent.”
While terming the president as “despotic”, Miguna, who ran for Nairobi governor during the last elections, said the two meeting does not end the problems that bedevil the country.
“True reconciliation of Kenyans is not about two people shaking hands but building a just and equal society governed by the rule of law, respect for human rights and an end to corruption and tribalism,” he added.
