25 March 2014, 11:35
Nyeri - Kieni Member of Parliament, James Mathenge (Kanini Kega) wants the former Prime Minister, Raila Odinga to record a statement with police over a recent post on twitter stating that ‘a storm would soon be witnessed in the country’.
According to Mathenge, Odinga through his twitter handle said he would soon unleash a dossier on the March 4 general election that would shock the world and cause a storm in the country.
Mathenge insisted that the former PM’s remarks should not be taken lightly especially in the wake of insecurity across the country that has seen many people lose their lives.
He added that Odinga should be forced to record a statement with the police once he returns from his tour abroad.
“What is this dossier he is alleging to have on last year’s general election that will cause a storm once unleashed? The former PM should stop blackmailing Kenyans,” he said.
He observed that the so called terrorist attacks may be politically instigated by people he claims want to bring down the Jubilee government.
“I can remember well that some opposition leaders were heard saying that this government will not last and I urge those who want to take power through back doors to wait until 2017,” Kega added.
The MP said the Jubilee government was duly elected and faulted the report that is about to be released by the Cord coalition confirming that the March 4 elections were rigged.
He however cautioned the former PM to refrain from making wild statements warning that such remarks were likely to cause instability in the country by inciting Kenyans against each other.
Mathenge made the remarks at his constituency after commissioning an ultra-modern ablution block at Muthuini Primary School.
