Don’t attack Kikuyus in Bondo, Raila tells supporters
National Super Alliance (NASA) leader Raila Odinga on Friday urged supporters not to attack members from communities perceived to support his rival President Uhuru Kenyatta.
Condoling with the families who lost their love ones in the Anti-IEBC demos in Bondo, Raila called on supporters not to make personal the political differences between him and President Kenyatta.
“Do not attack innocent people. Kikuyu businessmen here in Bondo are innocent. They have nothing to do with what we are facing today. Please don’t punish them for the sins of Uhuru. If God punishes him, it will be him alone,” he said.
“All Kenyans are together. Everywhere I go, they call me Baba, don’t you see? I went to a funeral in Kiambu, the people there called me Baba. So, it is not the people, it is a few leaders who are causing the problem.”
Raila said he will make a major announcement “on the way forward” on October 25 but insisted there will be no election on October 26 as scheduled by the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission.
