Hon Gladys Wanga:>>> The opposition has a constitutional mandate to oversight and keep the government on its toes. What we have seen today during the Jamhuri Day celebrations is an attempt by the President and his deputy to intimidate and criminalise the opposition ably led by Rt Hon Raila Odinga for doing their work.
What we saw is an attempt to further the threat by EACC and lay ground for arrest of RAO. May Jubilee be warned that any attempt to intimidate or arrest RAO will be met with RESISTANCE of unimaginable proportions by the over 6M RAO supporters right from Vange to Nyatike, Namanga to Busia. THE REAL ECONOMIC SABOTUERS ARE THE HIGH PRIEST OF CORRUPTION AND HIS ACCOMPLICES WITH WHOM THEY ARE MILKING THIS COUNTRY DRY!
Hon Bernard Wakoli:>>>President Uhuru Kenyatta while addressing the public today emphasized that anybody making unsubstantiated claim on corruption will be dealt with by the full force of the law!My take; when a claim is substantiated it becomes a fact..a claim is first made before it is substantiated.
What about if the president himself makes “unsubstantiated” claim? Just to mention a few: What happened to the “political network” of the Mpeketoni attack? You remember statehouse issuing statement that “No money has been lost at NYS, infact madam Waiguru should be thanked for preventing theft” the truth later comes out and Kenyans are informed that huge amount of money had actually been lost.
Who is fooling who here? Mr. President, Kenyans are sharp than you think…blessed Jamuhuri day Kenyans of goodwill and don’t fear talking about corruption-it’s a cancer in our country!
Silas Jakakimba:>>Mr. Odinga shall neither be intimidated, nor his trajectory of pursuing concerns of national importance, distracted. Expect him to be resolutely ruthless with tougher and even much more difficult questions in the coming days.
Bobby Bobants:>>Before EACC arrest Raila over Eurobond scandal, they should tell Kenyans why they didn’t ask Raila to provide them with information when he alerted them about NYS scandal. What makes Eurobond scandal more special to them than NYS scandal?
Ngugi Thiong’o >>>Today President Uhuru Kenyatta has made it clear that before you allege that something has been stolen, you must have evidence thereof. Now, I remember on 5th Jan, 2015, my Phone was grabbed from my hand by some thug along Haile Selassie Avenue and the thief quickly rushed with all the evidence. I posted here on Facebook that my phone had been stolen and I also told a good number of my friends that my phone had been stolen. I also went ahead and instructed Safaricom to disable my number and went to police station to obtain an abstract. All these without an evidence, yet everyone would believe that indeed my phone had been stolen; One because, I didn’t have it with me and Two because, they couldn’t also prove that it wasn’t stolen.
Now, according to Uhuru, if a thief come into your house and steal your Television as you watch, you shouldn’t tell people that it was stolen unless you had some videos or pictures capturing the thief stealing it. You shouldn’t ask for investigation to be done since you didn’t obtain evidence. And because you can’t tell where the thief has hidden it.
Today I’ve learnt something new, a man can have a head and fail to use it.
Dikembe Disembe:>>For me, should they arrest Raila Odinga, which is to me unfathomable, I won’t protest because he has been arrested, rather, I’ll protest because the reasons for his arrest are frivolous, vexations, idiotic and utterly nonsensical.
More especially, I’ll protest to stop our country from descending into lawlessness.
If someone doesn’t want to be held accountable there is always a matatu to Kiambu. I said it.
