Senate Deputy Speaker Prof Kithure Kindiki had called for the deployment of the military to neutralize the newly created National Resistance Movement to drive opposition National Super Alliance (NASA) civil disobedience campaign.
Addressing the media at his Irunduni home in Tharaka Constituency on Friday, the Tharaka-Nithi senator said the movement formed by opposition leader Raila Odinga is a threat to national security and should therefore be dealt with by the military.
“The country’s security organs should take the declaration by Opposition leader Raila Odinga seriously because the matter is no longer political but a security concern,” he said.
The former Senate Majority leader further termed it as a guerrilla movement established to take power by force from a legitimately elected government.
He further noted that Raila's long term political career was coming to an end, saying the formation of the resistance movement was a miscalculated move.
“The former Prime Minister has made the wrong decision of planning to use a militia to take power by force.
Last week, Raila declared that NASA had been transformed into a resistance movement to reject unjust laws.
Speaking in an interview with CNN on Saturday, the Orange Democratic Movement leader however said the movement will use legal and constitutional means to confront the Jubilee administration.
“If the government imposes itself on the people the people have a right to self determination the people also have a right to disobey orders coming from such a government therefore we will not go for violent confrontations with the government we will go for peaceful resistance,” Raila said.
