Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria has unleashed yet another scalding attack against opposition leader Raila Odinga, asking him what has happened to the firm promises of peace caravans which they agreed on during their fish and Ugali lunch meeting just days after the sit-out.
Kuria, who recently made peace with Raila and others, fired at the Coalition for Reforms and Democracy (CORD) leader Raila Odinga for politicking their peace caravans talks.
According to him the opposition leader is not good with promises as he is not upholding their agreement to each other on the matter.
Speaking at Africa Independent Pentecostal Church of Africa where Deputy President William Ruto launched Ruiru Deanery Sacco, Kuria reportedly said the CORD leader agreed to launch peace caravans across the country and that the matters will not be addressed during rallies.
In the words of Kuria:
“Barely two weeks after agreeing to uphold our deal, he (Raila) has started using the caravans to campaign and attack Jubilee. That is why I always say he is the only impediment to this country’s peace. He recently went to Mombasa, Kakamega and Kisii but instead of uniting Kenyans as we had concurred, he was at his best campaigning for CORD. He has clearly shown he is not for peace in this country.”
Expressing his anger, Kuria added that Raila was making use of the peace caravans to campaign for the presidency. The Gatundu South MP described the opposition as a hindrance to peace for Kenya.
Raila had lunch with hate speech suspects after he made multiple calls to them while in police custody.
Gatundu South MP along with MPs Kimani Ngunjiri, Junnet Mohamed, Timothy Bosire, Senator Johnstone Muthama, Women reps Florence Mutua and Aisha Jumwa honoured the invitation.
Also, CORD leaders including Kalonzo Musyoka and Bungoma Senator Moses Wetangula graced the occasion. The Jubilee MP had said he would thank Cord leader for forgiving him for calling for Raila’s assassination.
The MP said that during their detention at Pangani police station, MPs Ferdinand Waititu (Kabete), Junet Mohamed (Suna East), Timothy Bosire (Kitutu Masaba) and Kimani Ngunjiri (Bahati) promised to join the peace initiative.
The MPs said they will soldier on in preaching peace and maintained politics will not be discussed. Waititu said:
“The hard time we had in the police cells made us realise how important peace is. Hate speech is a thing of the past now. We want peace in our nation especially now that we are headed towards elections.”
The Kabete MP and Kitutu Masaba’s Timothy Bosire missed the lunch. The recent clash is coming when Waititu calls on the government to investigate Raila with youth meeting, suggesting it might result in riots.
The politicians advises that Raila and other leaders in the opposition should make the agenda of their meeting public so not to incite youths behind the scene.
