Raila mum on Uhuru portraits saga

03 February 2016, 17:03 William Korir

Nairobi - Usually quick to comment on such topics, CORD leader Raila Odinga has remained mum over the ongoing saga over the portrait of President Uhuru Kenyatta.

The saga was started by Siaya Governor Cornel Rasanga who stated that he does not want President Kenyatta's portrait hanged on the walls of the 24 CORD supporting Counties.

He suggested that one of Raila should instead take the place.

The issue has caused serious concern from the ruling Jubilee Coalition who deem it disrespect for the office of the President and an abomination.

But Raila, despite being there on the day Rasanga made the comments and the fact that it affects him in many a way, has decided to keep quiet about it and chosen silence over the matter.

According to his camp, it is an issue that does not deserve his opinion.

" The Prime Minister is not going to comment about it because there is no issue to talk about," spokesman Dennis Onyango said.

" If it comes up again, maybe, not for now," he added.

Majority Leader in the National Assembly Aden Duale feels that the CORD leader must take a stand or let the issue blow out of order.

" He must say something or it will be assumed he supports the decision by some of his Governors," he said.

There is no law forcing Kenyans to hang the President's portrait but as a mark of respect, it is usually placed in public offices and areas of business.
