Mau Mau War Veterans in Machakos Threaten to Curse Kalonzo and Muthama

January 25, 2018

Former Mau Mau warfighters in Machakos County have threatened to curse Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka and former Machakos Senator Johnstone Muthama.

The elders claimed that the two leaders have misled the Kamba community adding the curse will be effected if Raila Odinga and Musyoka are sworn in next Tuesday.

NASA has maintained that Raila’s oath-taking as ‘the people’s president and deputy president is still on course.

But the members of the Mau Mau War Veterans Association warned that the swearing-in is a recipe for chaos as it may lead to bloodshed in the country.

The elders were speaking during a press conference on Wednesday. They said they fought for the country’s independence and would not encourage any leader to resort to war in the name of liberating the country.

“For those who claim they will swear in NASA leader Raila Odinga, you are committing suicide since we already have a government in place,” said Johnston Kiiti, Mwala sub-county chapter chairperson.

“Do not provoke our anger since you are too young. Compromise with the current government or else we will deal with you.”

“This government came through our struggles,” Kiiti said adding that whoever will swear in the two using the Bible contrary to the law will be punished.

The elders further asked the National Assembly to strike off constitutional clauses which allow for picketing and demonstrations.
