Opposition Leader Raila Odinga slammed vandals who on Monday destroyed property at his East Africa Spectre Limited factory and raided former President Uhuru Kenyatta’s farm in Ruiru, Kiambu County.
Speaking in Kibra on Monday, the Azimio La Umoja leader said the vandals “acted out of foolishness and stupidity”.
“Hao waoga wametuma majambazi kupiga shamba ya Uhuru Kenyatta. Wametuma watu kiwanda changu, hiyo ni kitendo ya upumbavu na ujinga.(Those cowards sent criminals to raid Uhuru Kenyatta’s farm as well as my factory, that is stupidity and foolishness),” said Odinga.
The former Prime Minister pointed a finger at Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua for allegedly hiring goons to fight him and former President Uhuru Kenyatta.
Raila Odinga also maintained that he had followed the constitution when calling for the protests.
“Sisi tunafanya siasa ya kufuata sheria na katiba. Katiba inaruhusu maandamano. Katiba inaruhusu Wakenya kukutana kwa njia ya amani. Wale wanaenda kuvamia shamba za wengine na viwanda ni waoga, bwana Gachagua, the so-called child of the Mau Mau,” Raila said.
He reiterated that the opposition will not be cowed, saying “As Azimio, we soldier on regardless.”
