TNA: Uhuru's Migori woes unaceptable

09 September 2014, 12:38 William Korir

Nairobi - The National Alliance chairman Johnstone Sakaja has blasted the heckling received by President Uhuru Kenyatta, terming it unacceptable.

The president was heckled in a rally held in Migori Monday where he was to hold an anti-malaria campaign. It was disrupted after rowdy youth started throwing missiles such as stones, shoes and bottles at the presidential dias.

They youth were unhappy with the presence of Migori Governor Okoth Obado and his apparent flirtation with the Jubilee coalition.

The youth chanted anti-Obado messages as well as sung Orange Democratic Movement ODM victory songs to disrupt the rally.

And Sakaja, who was clearly unhappy with what took place labelled the events unacceptable and uncouth.

" We strongly condemn the show of political intolerance displayed in Migori during a function attended by President Uhuru Kenyatta, Migori Governor Okoth Obado and several other leaders from the region, he said.

He went on to call the acts disrespectful.

" As a party, we are deeply perturbed and appalled at the lack of respect that was shown through the acts of clearly choreographed hooliganism that took place in the presence of no less than the Head of State," he added.

He also called on TNA members and those supporting the Jubilee coalition to also show tolerance to those they do not support.

" We appeal to all Kenyans, and specifically our supporters, to exercise political maturity and tolerance and allow all leaders, including and especially our political opponents the respect they deserve as they traverse the country addressing meetings and collecting signatures, he added.

The president has yet to comment officially on the melee that took place but according to sources, it is understood that he is calm.
