OTHER JUBILEE LEADERS
Other Jubilee leaders who also spoke include Leader of majority in the National assembly Aden Duale ,senetor Kipchumba Murkomen and Nairobi governor Mike Sonko both who urged NASA leader Raila Odinga to accept the outcome of the October 26 presidential repeat poll.
Murkomen and Duale both blamed NASA supporters for the destruction of property during the welcome of Odinga on Friday.
“It is unfortunate what we witnesses yesterday where an old woman was stabbed and robbed of bananas and more property destroyed. It is sad that a leader who was once a Prime Minister is profiling a community to just churn a path to power,” the Senator said on Saturday.
Murkomen said Raila and other NASA leaders should “stop the shenanigans of pushing one community to one side” and focus on rebuilding the nation.
“If God designed you to be an Opposition leader then be contented and serve the people. Otherwise this is just a waste of time and energy because Kenyans made their decision and elected President Uhuru Kenyatta, make peace with that,” he said.
Duale also blamed the Opposition leader for loss of five lives and destruction of property during NASA protests.
