Nairobi - President Uhuru Kenyatta's special parliamentary address is hypocritical, says an MP
Nyando MP Fred Outa says that by attending the special sitting convened by the president today afternoon Monday, where he is expected to state his stand on his ICC summon.
It is still unknown what decision he will make over the matter but according to Outa, he feels that the sitting is an injustice to those who dies, were injured and lost property during the post election violence.
" It will be unfortunate to the post election violence victims if I went to parliament to listen to the president of the country thumping his chest over his summon," he said.
" Where are we heading to as a country if we are sitting to listen to the president speaking like that?," he posed.
Outa insists that there must be justice for all in the ICC process and says that even national reconciliation has not been given a chance.
" The president has not taken time to try heal Kenyans. He has not looked to that route. He is on a personal charade here, which is sad".
" What are we to tell the PEV victims if we head there to support the president in making a decision of personal note. That is the matter at hand and one we must look at, he added.
The president's team has already travelled to the Hague to represent him in the Wednesday October 8 status conference.
