Threatening Raila will work against you, Jubilee MP tells UhuRuto
14 December 2015, 10:58
Jackson Okata - A Jubilee Coalition Member of Parliament has warned President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto that threatening CORD leader Raila Odinga over the Eurobond claims is likely to work against them.
Kuresoi south MP Zakayo Cheruiyot said that it will be the worst mistake to be made by UhuRuto if Raila is arrested over his failure to substantiate his claims over the misuse of the Eurobond money.
Speaking Sunday at Kuresoi town Cheruiyot warned Uhuru and Ruto that they will be plunging the country into chaos should they make the worst mistake of ordering the arrest of Odinga.
“I have seen and heard the president and his deputy threaten those speaking about the Eurobond and the EACC has even threatened to arrest Raila but I want to tell Uhuru and Ruto that they will suffer irreparerable damage should they make the silly and stupid mistake of putting Raila in custody,” said Cheruiyot.

“By arresting or threatening Raila the president and his deputy are simply making the mistake of taking the country and putting it back in a situation like the one we had in 2007,” he added.
Cheruiyot advised the president to accept criticism and stop attacking opposition leaders and the media who speak against or point at ills of his officers.
“If they are true democrats they shouldn’t be threatening Raila when he criticizes them because as a Kenyan Raila has every right to ask questions from the government,” he said.
He lashed out at fellow Jubilee MPs for being hypocrites and failing to advise the president and his deputy accordingly for their own selfish reasons.
