Raila endorses impeachment motion against Uhuru
Cord leader Raila Odinga on Friday said the opposition will push on with the proposed motion against President Uhuru Kenyatta.
Mr Odinga said President Kenyatta went against the law by failing to respect the Supreme Court’s ruling on teachers’ pay.
He says Cord is not be bothered by how Jubilee MPs will utilize their numerical supremacy in both houses ‘because it is clear they will do so as the President’s puppets.’
He spoke in Bobasi constituency on Friday during the burial of Dagoretti North MP Simba Arati’s father Andrew Arati.
Mr Odinga however argued that if the impeachment motion fails, the President will still stand indicted in the court of the public opinion for violating the constitution.
He asked striking teachers and Cord supporters to attend a major rally in Nairobi to push for the 50 to 60 per cent pay rise awarded to teachers.
He also criticised Friday’s decision to close schools by Cabinet Secretary Kaimenyi saying: “I have realised that having a minister who does not understand politics is not a good thing. He just goes ahead and closes schools…do the schools belong to him? What we want to know is how he will resolve the teachers issue.”
