Eliud Owalo who was former Prime Minister Raila Odinga’s head of presidential campaign secretariat took issue with accusations by the Jubilee-leaning propaganda blog Jackal News who accused him of wanting to destabilize Uhuru Kenyatta government. Owalo denied the allegations as ‘diversionary tactics’ the jubilee leadership, already with little to show even as the first 100 days in government lapses, yet with more challenges unresolved are using for cheap publicity.
Here is the full rebuttal:
Reports doing rounds in the blogs emanating from the so called “Jackal News” linking me to “plots to destabilise the Jubilee Government” is utter nonsense.This is cheap propaganda being peddled by the Jubilee Government through the security and intelligence apparatus and their agents to divert the attention of Kenyans from the myriad challenges it is facing,including but not limited to the on-going teachers’ strike and complicity of Jubilee and the IEBC in the Makueni by-election Normination fiasco.
I appeal to all Kenyans of goodwill to treat these mischievous allegations with the contempt it deserves. The Jubilee Government must be alive to the fact that it will be evaluated on the basis of its scorecard against its campaign manifesto; and should therefore desist from diversionary tactics aimed at apportioning blame for its non-perfomance. Nobody of sound mind will labour to sabotage a Government that is not only dysfunctional but also has its priorities upside down.
The report, alleged to be from government intelligence apparatus, claims Owalo, in cohoots with a muslim working for Barklays Bank, some university student leaders from Maseno, Kenyatta and the University of Nairobi, a former employee of Kenya Tourism Development Corporation as well as British High Commissioner Christian Turner were plotting massive demonstrations in Nairobi Â to kick off an ‘equivalent of the Arab Spring’.
Owalo and Turner are known to be cheap victims of the Jubilee government whenever they want to bloat criticisms by their own supporters and other Kenyans on their many manifest failures, already legendary in Sub-saharan Africa.
