Overzealous Nkaissery increasing CORD popularity

15 March 2016, 20:12 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - The overzealous nature in which Interior CS Joseph Nkaissery is attacking opposition leaders is increasing their popularity and killing that of the government.

The move by Nkaissery to try arrest Mombasa Governor Ali Hassan Joho over his firearm license is a show of intimidation as well as an ill timed move, political analysts believe.

Nkaissery's interior ministry has insisted that it will take the Governor's guns as well as arrest him for keeping them after his license was withdrawn.

That move though, has already evoked criticism from Jubilee Coalition MPs and is likely to do the same from areas that support the CORD Governor, his party ODM as well as Kenyans who have no allegiance to wither party.

The circumstances of the arrest threat have played in Joho's hands who has claimed he is being harassed for being against the government.

For observers, the move to arrest him is ill timed and will only build CORD's popularity.

" The fact is that the Governor being chased down the way he is only plays into the hands of the opposition. It is ill timed. Kenyans will see it as intimidation and misuse of power," Political Analyst Michael Njenga says.

" So far the feeling from the ground is that the government is keen to have its way on every issue and that is a problem," he added.

Joho has already called on Kenyans not to let the government intimidate him and knows that by doing so, he will buy sympathy from Kenyans.

" The Governor has played the affected card which does not play nicely as far as the government is concerned. They will win solidarity from the ordinary Kenyan," political science lecturer Joshua Kipng'etich says.

" I think that it is not necessary for the government to hunt Joho down ad by doing so, it paints them as power hungry," he believes.

Joho says that he is being harassed by the government for being openly critical of their mode of operation as well as openly criticizing President Uhuru Kenyatta.
