Here is Musalia Mudavadi’s new year message
Some leaders in Jubilee are pleading with me to abandon the reform train. That I should calm down; let them get on the gravy train. They don’t know what steel I am made of. This is my New Year message to them; let me assure you I cannot jump off this electoral justice reform train into an empty cattle carriage.
The looting is brazen. A helicopter is allegedly bought for Sh2.7 billion, put in the air without insurance and immediately crashed to avoid audit queries. Do you call this a government or a group of pirates?
Ours isn’t a police service anymore but a political militia extorting, maiming and killing in a warzone in the name of defending the Jubilee regime. Jubilee has undermined police independence for political expediency and ethnic profiling. When Kenneth Matiba returned from London in 1992, Mwai Kibaki in 2002 and both Uhuru and Ruto from Hague in 2014, no police roadblocks, teargas or bullets were erected in their way. But it took six hours of murdering 19 people to get Raila from the airport to his home. Is this the Kenya we all can live in?
Electoral reform is not for Raila or Mudavadi. It is for posterity. It is for all Kenyans. Every vote must count. Elections must stop being a ritual of theft. Elections must stop being a conspiracy of one, two or three tribes to steal from others. Every Kenyan must have an opportunity to vote and to win or lose fairly. Kenya is not a monarchy.
Hon. Musalia Mudavadi,
Amani National Congress Party Leader.
