Duale condemns Raila for befriending hate speech suspects

26 June 2016, 07:22 Joseph Njung’eh

Nairobi - The Leader of Majority in National Assembly Aden Duale has slammed CORD leader Raila Odinga for making friends with politicians facing hate speech charges in court.

Duale said by befriending the politicians was equally to glorifying hatemongering in the country.

Speaking in Nyeri Saturday, the Garissa Township MP urged Jubilee MPs to control their speeches and avoid making remarks bordering hate speech.

“I was shocked to see leaders who want to divide this country along tribal lines being glorified and termed brave. Such people should not be allowed to lead this country,” said Duale.

Last week CORD leader Raila Odinga had a lunch meeting with MPs Moses Kuria (Gatundu South), Kimani Ngunjiri (Bahati), woman representatives Aisha Jumwa (Kilifi) and Florence Mutua (Busia), Machakos Senator Johnson Muthama, Suna East MP Junet Mohamed.

The politicians together with Kabete MP Ferdinand Waititu and Kitutu Masaba's Timothy Bosire had been detained and subsequently charged in court for hate speech.

On Friday, the opposition leader accompanied Kilifi Women Rep Aisha Jumwa for a homecoming party and political rally to celebrate her release from police custody.

Odinga described her as a fearless heroine of Kilifi County adding that she was victimised by the State for her firm political stand.

“Aisha is here with me and we have come to condemn the inhumane conditions in the cells where she was locked up like a dog,” Odinga said.

He also accused the Jubilee leadership of using hate speech to intimidate the Opposition over criticism of the government.
