Tharaka Nithi senator Professor Kithuure Kindiki has blamed ODM party leader Raila Odinga for the woes facing the ruling Jubilee party separating the party into two factions with one supporting the president and the other supporting the deputy president.
Speaking in a church fundraiser at St. Marys PCEA Kimuchia where the dp was the Chief guest,Kindiki said the ODM party has been using the handshake between their leader Raila Odinga and Uhuru Kenyatta to influence the president towards frustrating the jubilee party leaders so that they can gain politically.
Refferencing his ouster as the deputy speaker in the house of senate,the law professor said senators mostly from the ODM party failed to cite any wrong that he had done to justify his removal from the position of the deputy speaker.
“I was ousted as the deputy speaker in a four hours sitting that was marred with insults and intimidations but interestingly through out the proceedings,no senator came out clear on the wrong i had done that brought about my dismissal,” Kindiki said.
He said that the reason as to why the massive dismissal of leaders allied to the deputy president from their positions of powers stopped is after the individuals who were behind the scheme realized that the frustrations that were being mounted on them made them stronger against their expectations that the ousted leaders would come back pleading for mercy.
However despite the challenges that they are facing as jubilee leaders,Kindiki said they shall not at any time think of disrespecting or insulting the president but instead they will continue offering their support for the remaining time of his reign and that is when they will show Raila their true colours.
“They thought after dismissing us from our positions we would relent and tow to their line but they realized we became even stronger.I therefore want to tell Raila that after Uhuru’s tenor is over,he will be in into a big shock to see Kenyans rally behind the deputy president and that is the time he will face the real humiliation,” said Kindiki.
He urged the dp to continue supporting the church and the common man and change their lives for better.
