Nasa leader Raila denounces chaos, revives Canaan narrative

National Super Alliance leader Raila Odinga has denounced the violence in Nairobi’s Kawangware.

Speaking at Gatina PAG Church on Sunday, Mr Odinga claimed that Kenyan politics have been militarised.


On Friday, at least three people were killed and others injured after two rival groups clashed, alleging that outlawed sect Mungiki was to blame.

He added that his popularity is nationwide and that President Uhuru Kenyatta is using “force to rule”.

“Kenyans want justice, not rule by force. The road to Canaan is still on course. Kenya needs a selfless leader to deal with tribalism, which Jubilee cannot solve,” he said.


The Nasa leader, who pulled out of the Thursday repeat presidential election over credibility issues he levelled against the electoral agency, said the coalition has policies that would accelerate the nation’s growth, such as poverty eradication.

Regarding the quorum hitch at the Supreme Court that prevented the hearing of an election petition case from proceeding, he said it “was an indication of a crippling Judiciary”.


He further likened the Jubilee governance to the late Uganda President Idi Amin’s dictatorial regime.

He was accompanied by MPs Simba Arati (Dagoretti North), Chris Wamalwa (Kiminini), George Aladwa (Makadara); and women reps Florence Mutua (Busia Woman rep), Gladys Wanga (Homa Bay) and Esther Passaris (Nairobi).

The case had been certified urgent by Mr Maraga on Tuesday.
