We will continue fighting, Raila tells Uhuru, Ruto

15 March 2016, 21:24 William Korir

Nairobi - We will continue fighting despite arrest warrants and threats, CORD leader Raila Odinga has told President Uhuru Kenyatta and DP William Ruto.

The CORD leader was speaking in the aftermath of the ruling which gave Mombasa Governor Ali Hassan Joho a reprieve from arrest over his ownership of a gun.

He stated that nothing would stop the liberation battle that has already begun.

" The ruling today means that we will continue to stand firm for the ideals of our party and reassure the people that no amount of intimidation will deter us from their service,"he said.

" The ruling coalition has stated its stand, that it will fight every bit of action taken by the liberators of the nation but that will not stop us from working for the nation," he added.

The High Court had earlier kicked out the order by the government to take Mombasa Governor Ali Hassan Joho's guns as well as revoked the arrest warrant because of the same.

Justice George Odunga made the ruling Tuesday evening.

He stated that Interior CS Joseph Nkaissery has no authority to arrest Joho while he accused the chief of the licensing Samwel Kimaru of misusing his office's power, stating that he has no power to outlaw the use of firearms by the Governor on the grounds he used.

" Only the firearm licensing board has powers to revoke a firearm certificate on lawful grounds. Kimaru acted ultravires," Odunga said.

He further accused Nkaissery of malice.

" The interior CS has demonstrated malice and acted arbitrarily contrary to his powers under the law," he added.

Joho will now await the ruling on a case to determine the move by the government to revoke his license.
