Karua claps back at Raila’s spokesperson over Kioni resignation call from bipartisan talks

Martha Karua differs with Makau Mutua for calling for the resignation of Jeremiah Kioni from the bipartisan talks.

Narc Kenya party leader Martha Karua has clashed with Azimio Spokesperson Makau Mutua on whether Jubilee Secretary General Jeremiah Kioni should continue to be part of the bipartisan talks.

Karua was reacting after Mutua urged Kioni to resign as head of the Azimio technical team in the ongoing bipartisan talks over his utterance the talks were heading nowhere.

“My friend Makau Mutua I presume this to be your personal opinion. Kioni or indeed any of us cannot be gagged. The best proof that talks will go anywhere is results,” Karua said. 

Karua noted that it has been almost 60 days since the talks began and the cost of living has been skyrocketing.

She said the outcome of the bi-partisan talks will be known with time. 

 Mutua on Saturday said Kioni has no faith in the dialogue whose aim is to resolve electoral issues that emerged after the 2022 presidential elections.

“My good friend Hon Kioni should with immediate effect resign as head of the Azimio technical team at the Bomas talks,” he said.

“He’s repeatedly said the talks are a ‘waste of time’. He must resign unless he’s a hypocrite. How can one lead a team in talks he doesn’t believe in?”

Mutua’s remarks come days after Kioni fiercely clashed with EALA MP Hassan Omar during the Bomas talks bringing the talks to a standstill for a moment.

Omar is said to have chastised Kioni for saying at a news conference recently that the discussions look to be engineered to fail. 

“I don’t expect anything to come out from those talks. It is just a waste of time,” the former Ndaragwa MP said.

The former Ndaragwa MP on his part accused Omar of disrespecting the Kikuyu community.

“He has no respect for Jubilee and the Gikuyus in Jubilee. He believes we should not be seated there. If he asks tulileta Kura ngapi hiyo si ni kusema hatuna maana kuwa pale,” he said.

This sparked a heated discussion between the two, which was cut short by the co-chairs, Wiper Party leader Kalonzo Musyoka and National Assembly Majority Leader Kimani Ichung’wah.

The bipartisan team leadership however downplayed the clash with Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka who leads the Azimio team saying there is tremendous progress made.
