Nairobi - The opposition has been advised to take President Obama’s advice and respect the legally elected government of President Kenyatta instead of opposing everything the government does.
Bahati Member of Parliament ,Kimani Ngunjiri said that President Obama’s scolding of the opposition was a clear indication that America is not ready to work with an opposition that opposes anything for the sake of it.
Speaking in Nakuru town Monday morning, Ngunjiri urged the CORD leadership to respect the government of the day and support it if they want to remain relevant.

“The message from Obama was very clear to the opposition that they should stop thinking they will use America to pressure and harass a legally elected government. If they want to remain relevant, they should toe the line and work with the government of the day,” said Ngunjiri.
“If Obama and America are ready and willing to work with Uhuru and his government, then what reason will the opposition have for opposing the government,” he asked.
Ngunjiri asked Cord leader Raila Odinga to honorably retire from politics ahead of the 2017 elections as one way of maintaining the peace currently being enjoyed in the country.
