Jubilee leaders urge Raila to abandon 'swearing in' plan

A section of Jubilee leaders have asked National Super Alliance leaders Raila Odinga and Kalonzo Musyoka to abandon their controversial ‘swearing in’ scheduled for January 30.

The leaders, led by Meru Governor Kiraitu Murungi, Senate Deputy Speaker Kithure Kindiki and Nyamira Governor John Nyagarama claim the opposition’s plans would only serve to further split the country.

The leaders, who were speaking during the funeral of former Kenya Tea Development Authority Chairman Stephen Mutai in Meru County, said the planned ‘swearing in’ ceremony was an affront on the Constitution.

The three were also flanked by a host of other Meru leaders including Rahim Dawood (Imenti North), Kathuri Murungi (Imenti South) and John Paul Mwirigi (Igembe South) who also echoed their sentiments.

The leaders asked their opposition counterparts to embrace the dialogue route to foster peace and stability.

“We can’t all be presidents in this country, let us talk…let them meet and talk. All Kenyans want peace,” said Nyagarama.

“The things that the opposition are talking about on January 30 are constitutionally untenable, impossible, and laughable,” said Kindiki.

The leaders also eulogized the late KTDA chair as a hard working leader who united small scale tea farmers countrywide.

NASA plans to ‘swear in’ Odinga and Musyoka, as President and Deputy President of the People’s Assembly respectively on January 30th.
