Sonko seeks court orders to stop all political rallies

Nairobi - Nairobi County Senator, Mike Sonko said that he will go to court Monday to seek orders to stop all political rallies in the country.
He said all political rallies should be stopped until calm returns to all parts of the country.
Sonko also said Raila Odinga alongside other CORD and Jubilee members should be arrested for inciting Kenyans.
Speaking at Kwale High School during a celebration Saturday, Sonko said the country must have peace and experience calm before any political rally is conducted.
The ceremony was attended by Governor Salim Mvurya, his executive members, KNUT officials, teachers and various schools.
Sonko urged youths to shun leaders who try to incite them for their own political interests adding that Kenyans must love each other.
He said that the 2007/08 post-election violence was as a result of mass action by some leaders and such should be avoided at all costs.
“The same people who called for mass action in 2007 have called it again but they will not be affected in case there is chaos in the country because they have security like me,” he warned Kenyans.
The Senator said that the country is bigger than any individual or political leader, and urged the Director of Public prosecution and Inspector general of police to arrest all leaders who incite Kenyans against each other.
“Let there be no exception of leaders because of their status; even Raila Odinga should be arrested. Their charge sheet must be ready by now,” he said.
“You cannot have a rally and then you tell youths to be ready to die. That is bad politics which should not be allowed in this country,” added Sonko.
The senator said that President Uhuru administration is ready to dialogue with CORD on issues affecting Kenyans but such should be done with respect.
“We are not against opposition but criticise the government through the right ways. Bad politics will not take this country forward,” added Sonko.
He said that the issue of corruption or insecurity should be a big agenda since Raila Odinga is linked to corruption at the Kisumu Molasses Plant.
“If it’s corruption, Raila Odinga, Johnston Muthama and Moses Wetang’ula have links with corruption and insecurity. Al-shabaab started hitting Kenyans during Daniel Moi’s era, Mwai Kibaki’s and now Uhuru’s. They were given IDs while Otieno Kajwang was the minister of immigration,” he added.
