‘Anabweka bweka huko nje’: Raila on Miguna travel saga
ODM leader Raila Odinga has finally broken his silence over the travel woes of his former aide Miguna Miguna.
According to him, no one has blocked Miguna from traveling back to Kenya.
“Anabweka bweka huko nje kama mbwa..sii akuke abweke hapa…Uhuru haogopi miguna..Raila haogopi miguna…nilimpatia kazi…Wacha arudi hapa Kenya,” Raila said on Friday.
He was speaking in Kisii during the first county Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) consultative forum with over 3000 delegates.
The former Prime Minister also noted that a referendum on the BBI is expected before the end of June and leaders should advocate for it at the grassroots level.
“Tumewaambia MCAs waende kwa wananchi,” he said.
Leaders present at the Kisii forum were CSs Fred Matiang’i (Interior) and Eugene Wamalwa (Devolution); Governors Hassan Joho (Mombasa), Charity Ngilu (Kitui) and Anne Waiguru (Kirinyaga); as well as MPs Richard Onyonka (Kitutu Chache) and Junet Mohamed (Suna East).
Miguna, who once served as a senior advisor to Raila, has been vocal on his stance against the BBI.
“All Patriotic Kenyans must unite and defeat Despot Uhuru Kenyatta’s imperial designs through the #BBINonsense. We must say NO to attempts to mutilate the Constitution in order to remove the TERM LIMIT so that Uhuru Kenyatta and Conman Raila Odinga can defraud Kenyans again,” he said on January 3.
Miguna had planned to return to the country on Tuesday this week, however, a red alert issued against him saw two airlines –Lufthansa and Air France—stall the trip.
Attorney General Paul Kihara has since been ordered to appear at the High on Monday to explain why orders to allow Miguna’s return were disobeyed.
Judge Justice Mativo said the Miguna saga is a proper case for the court to ‘flex its muscles in defending the Kenyan constitution and the rule of law’.
“The values of obeying orders are not there for cosmetic purposes … Court orders are there to be obeyed in ensuring the rule of law is upheld,” he said on Friday.
