CORD leader Raila Odinga responded to President Yoweri Museveni’s recent remarks at Kenya@50 celebrations where the Ugandan leader alluded that Raila was a project of the West during the last general elections.
Museveni, who repeated the same comments he made during President Uhuru’s inauguration in April said by voting Uhuru, Kenyans had rejected leaders imposed by the ‘West’- a usual reference to European countries and the United States.
Raila warned other African leaders too concerned with Kenya’s internal political systems than their own countries. Specifically, he warned Museveni against meddling in Kenya’s political processes, saying his speech was aimed at damaging the country’s standing at the International Criminal Court.
â€œIt is high time he (Museveni) stopped meddling in the affairs of Kenya as a sovereign country and we are not going to sit back and watch him behaving the way he is doing,â€ warned Raila.
Odinga also took a swipe at Uhuru’s recent comments that Jubilee alliance will rule Kenya for 20 years.
â€œUhuru should strive to put effective economic measures in place aimed at improving the livelihoods of poor Kenyans hence liberating them from poverty, instead of boasting that he will rule Kenya for the next 20 years.â€
The PM spoke at commemoration of the death of former Westlands MP Fred Gumo’s parents at Namalo village in Busia County.
He was accompanied by Senators Amos Wako and James Orengo and area MP Paul Otuoma alongside other leaders.
