Jubilee using KANU tactics to scuttle opposition

06 January 2016, 14:12 Arap Yego

Nairobi - The ruling Jubilee Coalition is yet again on the spot for allegedly employing old KANU tactics to scuttle the opposition.

Coalition for Reforms and Democracy (CORD) leader Raila Odinga Wednesday accused the President Uhuru Kenyatta led coalition of enticing opposition MPs with hefty bribes to defect to Jubilee.

The sentiments come a day after the Amani National Congress (ANC) accused Jubilee coalition of employing YK’92 tactics to infiltrate and scuttle votes in Western Kenya and other regions  ahead of next year’s General Elections.

“We are back to the 1990s when MPs were paid heftily to defect from Opposition to the governing party," said Raila at a press conference he convened at a  Nairobi Hotel to give to give his State of the Nation Address.

“To recreate the imperial and dictatorial presidency of the past, Jubilee is laying the ground for the creation of a single party, buying off Opposition MPs and co-opting other parties, all in the name of creating national unity. That is what Kanu did from 1960s all the way to 1990s,”  he added.

Raila who was accompanied by his co-principal Moses Wetang'ula and other leaders observed that President Kenyatta's government is targeting to silence vocal trade unions and other bodies for it to continue with its dictatorial tendencies.

“Trade Unions, just like independent media and civil society are targeted for silencing. Jubilee has sworn to remove the vocal leadership of two giant unions, KNUT and the Dock Workers union in a bid to create a compliant labour movement, just as Kanu did in the past,” claimed Raila.

In a separate press conference on Monday, ANC Secretary General Godfrey Osotsi lamented that Jubilee coalition has resorted to tired and outlandish tactics to fight Mudavadi.

“They are tactics heavily deployed in the past by YK’92 and it was no surprise that YK’92 operatives still in high government office are executing that tired trick on our supporters,” said Mr Osotsi..

He  accused Jubilee of using money to induce leaders from its stronghold to declare loyalty to the newly formed Jubilee Party.
