Party leader calls on Raila, Kalonzo to retire from politics

03 November 2014, 12:16 John Kioko

Kwale - Chama Cha Uzalendo National Vice Chairman, Richard Onsongo, has called on the former Prime Minister Raila Odinga and Kalonzo Musyoka to retire from politics.

Onsongo said that last week's incident where the two failed to stop rowdy youth from beating ODM Executive Secretary Magerer Langat showed they are not leaders.

He said the two should have protected Langat by employing their leadership skills, saying their failure is an indicator that they cannot be trusted.

Speaking in Diani Saturday, Onsongo condemned the incident and said it is unfortunate that some ODM members are proving to be politically immature.

He said that there is need for tolerance among Kenyans from across the political divide in order to avoid such scenarios in public.

“It is now clear that Kalonzo and Raila are not leaders and we are telling them their time to retire from politics is now. They should have done their best to ensure the ODM Executive Secretary is not beaten and harassed in public,” said Onsongo.

He said the two have failed to bring sanity in their parties and so they should just go home and give other leaders chance to engage in politics.

“We want leaders who can show their leadership skills but if those people entrusted with leadership are proving to be failures then they are of no use to us," he noted.

He called on police to investigate and bring to book those behind the incident saying Kenyans should learn to tolerate each other.

“We have freedom of speech and association. It is not good for one to be punished because he is being perceived to be a traitor of a party; that was unfair,” he said.

Magerer was roughed up by a group of Nairobi MCAs on Thursday while attending ODM parliamentary group meeting at Orange house.

It has been reported that power struggle over ODM leadership and infighting at the Orange house are the root cause of Magerer's problem.

Raila has so far called for the arrest of Magerer's attackers.
