Raila asked to dump Aladwa after hate utterances

23 October 2015, 11:32

Kiambu - Kiambu Senator, Kimani Wamatangi has called on Cord leader Raila Odinga to quickly dissociate himself from former Nairobi Mayor, George Aladwa following the hate remarks he made at a rally in Kibera.

According to Wamatangi, Raila should do so to show his patriotism and also demonstrate that he does not support bloodshed in Kenya.

“Raila should come out as a patriotic Kenyan and declare his stand on the matter because he was named by Aladwa.

“We did the same in the case of Moses Kuria. We came out as a party and denounced Kuria’s utterances because we do not support violence,” Wamatangi said.

However, Makueni MP Daniel Maanzo quickly defended the Cord leader saying he should be given time to comment on the matter because he was not at the rally Monday where the alleged hate speech remarks were made.

“Raila was not present at the rally in Kibera where Aladwa allegedly made hate remarks. Let us give him an opportunity to associate or disassociate himself from the utterances,” said Maanzo.

Asked as to whether he agreed with Aladwa’s utterances, Maanzo refused to give his thoughts saying he will be Aladwa’s legal representative if charged.

“I was there at the rally in Kibera and I followed the speech. I will not pre-empt my thoughts on the matter as I will be Aladwa's legal representative,” Maanzo said.

Director of Public Prosecutions, Keriako Tobiko ordered investigations into the matter although Aladwa issued a statement saying his utterances were misconstrued.

“I did say there would be killings. What I meant was that the deaths would be a result of joy and not violence,” Aladwa stated.
