Kikuyu MP Kimani Ichung’wa has hit out at ACK Bishop Jackson Ole Sapit and a section of Jubilee politicians for allegedly asking the government to allow NASA leader Raila Odinga’s Tuesday swearing-in to take place.
Speaking in Kikuyu Town on Sunday, the Jubilee MP accused Ole Sapit and some Jubilee politicians of allegedly sympathizing with Raila Odinga.
The MP said that Raila’s planned swearing in is illegal and anyone supporting it is an enemy of the country’s peace.
He claimed that Raila and Kalonzo Tuesday swearing-in will cause bloodshed and divide the country if allowed to take place.
The Kikuyu lawmaker said that the country security cannot be put at risk because of the selfish interests of some few people.
“It is very wrong for some clergymen and politicians to endorse an illegal swearing in that breaches the constitution and threatens national security,” he said.
Ichung’wa asked the police to ensure that Raila does not take the oath and is arrested and prosecuted if he goes not to swear himself.
He said that Kenya is a law abiding country and acts of impunity and misinterpretation of the law should not be condoned or tolerated.
On Sunday Ole Sapit was quoted asking the president to allow Raila’s oath to take place.
Ole Sapit claimed that stopping Raila’s Tuesday swearing-in will be creating room for chaos and bloodshed.
Nairobi senator Johnson Sakaja is among politicians allied to Jubilee who also want the government not to stop Raila and Kalonzo’s Tuesday swearing-in.
NASA has insisted that it will swear in Raila and Kalonzo as the people’s president and deputy respectively at Uhuru Park on Tuesday.
The government has however termed the planned swearing-in illegal and highly treasonous.On Sunday, Nairobi police boss Josephs Koome said that they are ready to deal with lawbreakers come Tuesday.
Koome said that no one will be allowed at Uhuru Park as it is closed to the public as earlier indicated by the Nairobi county government.
