PRESS RELEASE FROM H.E STEPHEN KALONZO MUSYOKA ON STATEMENT RELEASED BY GOVERNMENT SPOKESMAN ON CORD’S RALLY ON MADARAKA DAY
I unreservedly condemn the decision by the Jubilee Government to bar CORD from holding a legitimate prayer meeting at Uhuru Park on 1st June 2016 which decision is based on false allegations regarding state security. If what the government spokesman has said is true, then the Jubilee government is working to destabilize the East African Community (EAC) because “Two neighboring state” can only mean East African States. I therefore challenge Jubilee to tell us which neighboring Countries and which individuals are working to destabilize Kenya.
I must mention that some of us have worked hard to correct the mistakes leading to the collapse of the EAC in 1977. East Africans have worked hard at regional integration to the level of EAC, which the Jubilee Government is now actively trying to undermine. It is not lost on Kenyans and indeed East Africans that the important Ministry of EAC affairs is now practically a department of the Ministry of Labor, while Uganda for instance, has the Deputy Prime Minister designated as the focal Minister for East African Affairs.
Rather than hiding under cover of State Security, Jubilee should now clearly state that they are not interested in national dialogue to resolve the IEBC crisis.
Though currently out of the country, I am in close consultation with my brothers Moses Wetangula, Raila Odinga and other patriotic Kenyans as we fashion the next cause of action.
God bless Kenya.
