Wiper party leader Kalonzo Musyoka has called on Jubilee to drop the electoral laws amendment that was presented both before the senate and the national assembly last week. According to Kalonzo the laws are targeting individuals like the chief Justice and the IEBC chair and were not in the best interest of the country. Musyoka was speaking while attending a Sunday church service at AIC Kyanda Mua.
The NASA Co-principal was accompanied by Kathiani MP Robert Mbui, Makueni governor Prof. Kivutha Kibwana and other local leaders also spoke against the move by immigrations officials last week to block him from travelling to Uganda citing that he was not using public resources hence he doesn’t require approval from president Kenyatta like senior state officials. Kalonzo was temporary blocked Thursday from travelling to Uganda together with his NASA co-principal senator Moses Wetangula. Kalonzo was headed to preside over UTAMU University graduation. Kalonzo is the chancellor of the university.
Kathiani MP Robert Mbui reiterated that the constitution of Kenya gives Kenyans freedom that cannot be taken by the state. He cited the harassment of Former Machakos Senator Johnston Muthama and the torture of University of Nairobi students by the police Thursday that left hundreds of students injured and caused a wide national outcry.
Mbui also urged NASA supporters to turn out in large numbers Monday and ensure the demonstrations are peaceful. Governor Kivutha Kibwana also condemned the brutality of the police on University of Nairobi students and asked the Kamba community to solidly rally behind NASA to ensure they clinch the presidency in the repeat polls.
