Raila’s spokesperson calls for resignation of Kioni from bipartisan talks

Raila’s spokesperson Makau Mutua wants Jeremiah Kioni out of bipartisan talks over his recent remarks.

Azimio la Umoja coalition spokesperson Makau Mutua has called for the resignation of Jubilee Secretary General Jeremiah Kioni from Azimio’s technical team in the bipartisan talks. 

In a statement released on Saturday, September 23, Mutua disputed Kioni’s most recent assertion that the ongoing negotiations between the opposition and the administration are a waste of time.

“My good friend Hon Kioni should with immediate effect resign as head of the Azimio technical team at the Bomas talks. He has repeatedly said the talks are a “waste of time.” He must resign unless he is a hypocrite. How can one lead a team in talks he doesn’t believe in?” he posed.

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.

After a heated argument, the two are claimed to have brought the bipartisan talks to a halt.

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.
