Don’t attack non residents, I will handle Uhuru, Raila tells Nyanza residents
NASA presidential flag bearer Raila Odinga has reiterated his call for his supporters to embrace all communities living in Nyanza without minding their ethnic background.
He insisted that no individual should be attacked on the basis of tribe saying the spirit of brotherhood should prevail even during demonstrations.
“If (President) Uhuru is at fault the blame should lie squarely on him. Don’t attack Mwangi in Usenge just because Uhuru has offended us, leave Uhuru for me to handle him,” Raila said.
He was speaking on Saturday in Usenge during a funeral service of a relative to his wife, Idah.
The former Prime Minister asked his supporters to remain united and wait for him to give directions on the current impasse.
Raila on Friday indicated that he will make an important announcement on Wednesday next week ahead of the repeat election.
“I know how we will reach Canaan as there are so many ways to kill a rat. You can beat it, you can put it in the sack and drop it in the lake or you can decide to kill it by stoning,” Raila said.
He faulted the Jubilee administration for turning Mashujaa day celebrations into a party affair.
He was accompanied by Siaya governor Cornel Rasanga, Kisumu governor Anyang Nyong’, Homabay governor Cyprian Awiti and a host of MPs.
