Raila inciting Kenyans to violence – Uhuru
President Uhuru Kenyatta has accused the opposition National Super Alliance (NASA) chief, Raila Odinga, of inciting Kenyans to violence in an event he (Raila) loses the August 8, 2017 presidential elections.
The President argued that Raila was treading on the same path he followed when ethnic violence occurred after the December 2007 elections.
The President, who spoke at Sigor, Bomet County, said Raila was using the same statements he used previously and which might harm the unity existing between different communities in the country.
“Yesterday, he was talking about ‘wenye inchi and wenye wanafaa kurudi kwao’ (those who own the land and those who should return to where they came) and that is the same language he used to create conflict the last time,” said the President.
The Head of State, who is seeking to defend his seat in the August 8 elections and is also the leader of Jubilee Party, has constantly accused the opposition of threatening the country’s peace even as Kenyans prepare to install new leaders less than 55 days to go.
Raila has, however, constantly refuted the claims saying that Jubilee is planning to rig the elections in favour of the incumbent.
The President warned that no acts of violence will be tolerated and those found culpable will be dealt with in accordance with the law.
