CORD: CID is targeting Raila

18 July 2013, 18:03 Abdiweli Ismail

Leaders allied to CORD coalition came out strongly on Thursday to condemn the recent summoning of Eliud Owalo by CID officers.

Speaking at a press conference in Nairobi, Kisumu senator Peter Anyang’ Nyong’o said that Kenyans are concerned and worried about the liberties and freedom being curtailed saying that the main target is the ODM leader Raila Amollo Odinga.

He said barely after Hon. Raila Odinga called for the disbandment of the IEBC, his aid Eliud Owalo is being accused by criminal investigation department of planning to destabilize the government.

"Let us be clear, Eliud Owalo is but a decoy. The pursuit of Owalo is but a diversionary tactic, for the real target is his bosses - the coalition principals Hon. Raila Odinga, Hon. Kalonzo Musyoka and Senator Moses wetangula," remarked Nyong’o.

He added that Owalo is being accused of conducting meetings and organizing youth around the country for the purpose fomenting an uprising.

Nyong’o claimed that CID is accusing Owalo of receiving millions of shillings from foreign embassies through Nairobi law firm which is disguised as legal proceeds.

Accompanied by Machakos senator Johnston Muthama, his Siyaya counterpart James Orengo and Minority Leader in Parliament and several legislators, the Kisumu senator urged the Jubilee government to mind their business, respect and uphold the constitution and desist from using untoward tactics from these leaders.

Eliud Owalo was last week summoned by CID officers to ‘clarify’ some issues. This came after an anonymous blogger made allegation that Owalo was recruiting University students to destabilize the Jubilee Government.

On his part, Machakos senator questioned why the intelligence team did not arrest the culprits, saying those were serious allegations that cannot be taken lightly.

"This is to divert attention from the problems Kenyans are undergoing such as the teachers strike," said the Machakos senator.
