NASA leader Raila Odinga on Friday urged his supporters not to attack Kikuyus and other Jubilee-leaning communities living in NASA strongholds, saying his battles are with President Uhuru Kenyatta and not with entire communities.
Speaking at a rally in Bondo, Raila urged all communities to live in harmony.
“Do not attack innocent people. That Kikuyu businessman here in Bondo is innocent. They have nothing to with what we are facing today. Please…please…please…please. No one, no Kikuyu, should be punished for the sins of Uhuru. If God punishes him, it will be him alone,” Raila said.
I went to a funeral in Kiambu, the people there called me Baba before him [Uhuru Kenyatta]. So, it is not the people, it is a few leaders who are causing the problem,” added Raila.
At the rally, meant to coincide with Mashujaa Day and commemorate those killed during anti-IEBC protests, Raila insisted that there will be no elections on October 26th as scheduled. He also said he will make an announcement on October 25th on the way forward.
