Nairobi - Apologize to Kenyans, Nairobi Senator Mike Mbuvi Sonko has told a Jubilee MP.
Sonko, in reference to Dagoretti MP Dennis Waweru, who stated that he would bring up a gang of Jubilee Coalition supporters to take on CORD during the ongoing IEBC demonstrations, says that the move by the MP has put the coalition in a bad place.
He says that Waweru must apologize to Kenyans for the remarks and desist from linking the Jubilee Coalition with violent acts.
" I condemn in the strongest terms possible the ongoing demos which have led to destruction of properties and injuries. I urge opposition leaders to desist from throwing insults at the Jubilee leadership and respect the rights of other Kenyans," he said.
" The Jubilee MP must therefore withdraw the incitement remarks and apologize to the Jubilee allied youths whom he had wished to hire to cause mayhem in the city in the name of countering demonstrators. He must therefore be reminded that inciting violence against fellow Kenyans is a direct violation of our constitution and that he does not have a political right to express beliefs in a way that violate the rights of others," he added.
Waweru when asked to comment stated that the actions of the CORD coalition must be stemmed by Kenyans who are tired of the violent acts.
" The violence must be stemmed by Kenyans who are unhappy with what is going on. If they say that they are unhappy things will change," he added.
The demos have been going on for a number of weeks now, with CORD Coalition leaders saying that they will not stop until changes are made to the make up of the IEBC.
