Kabando wa Kabando calls on Raila Odinga and Kalonzo Musyoka to reconsider their position on bipartisan talks with government.
Former Mukurweini MP Kabando Wa Kabando has urged Azimio la Umoja, Raila Odinga and Kalonzo Musyoka Raila Odinga and Wiper Party leader Kalonzo Musyoka to reconsider their position on the ongoing bi-partisan talks with the government.
In a letter dated September 20, Kabando referred to the negotiations as a waste of time and a plot to conceal a political agreement.
He questioned the rationale behind the committee’s request for National Assembly funding.
“Bomas talks are a waste of time, a conspiracy for a covert political settlement. Spare suffering Kenyans this chicanery. How can you ask a parliament controlled by Ruto for taxpayers’ cash to fund it?” Kabando posed.
The former MP went on to tell the two opposition leaders that denials of losing the 2022 General Election to President William Ruto will not help them, urging them to reject the bipartisan talks.
“Denials of defeat by Ruto won’t aid now. He is the President, as inept, deceptive, imperialist-proxied, graft-marshalled as he is. Tragic to be enticed by his cunning. Let’s oppose,” he added.
Kabando claimed that the opposition is shortchanging Kenyans by the dialogue committee requesting funding from parliament.
“It’s now evident that Azimio is short-changing Kenyans. You can’t say Ruto is illegitimate yet doing business with him Hydra-style. How do you ask Bunge to skim coins from already overtaxed citizens to go fund millionaires assembled at Bomas for pep-talk? Ruto has shown disdain,” he stated.
This comes after the bipartisan committee announced that it will begin meeting with various groups that have submitted memoranda to it from Friday, September 22, 2023.
Addressing the media on Monday, National Assembly Majority Leader Kimani Ichung’wah said the groups will be given a maximum of twenty minutes to present their memoranda.
“We shall allocate each of the invited teams a maximum of twenty minutes to be able to give us an exposition of their memoranda,” said Ichung’wah.
