Nyagah hits out at Jubilee, NASA over TJRC

Independent presidential candidate Joseph Nyagah

Independent presidential candidate Joseph Nyagah has warned the Government and the National Super Alliance (NASA) against setting the country up for chaos by mishandling the explosive Truth, Justice and Reconciliation Commission (TJRC) report.

The former minister said the continued silence by the Jubilee government creates the impression that President Uhuru Kenyatta’s regime is afraid of acting on a report compiled under the law and use of public funds.

“The Opposition had made its implementation a key pillar of its election campaign, creating a dangerous and false narrative that it is capable of correcting all perceived historical injustices captured in the TJRC report,” he said.

Nyagah spoke after meeting a group of independent Members of County Assembly aspirants from across ten counties in Mt Kenya region at a Nairobi hotel, where he said their movement is seeking to forge a common united front to counter a six-piece campaign strategy adopted by Jubilee and NASA.

He added: “TJRC was a major pillar of Agenda Four of the national reconciliation and healing process negotiated in 2008, and cannot be wished away.”

The immediate former presidential advisor, said his government will constitute a consultative forum of stakeholders and other experts to review the TJRC report and set out implementation modalities.
