Moses Kuria, Cabinet Secretary for Trade and Investment, has advised President William Ruto on how to deal with Raila Odinga, leader of the Azimio One Kenya Alliance.
Kuria told the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) on Friday that the government of President William Ruto should use tactics similar to those used by Rwanda’s Paul Kagame and Uganda’s Yoweri Museveni to deal with Raila.
When asked if the current regime is willing to hold talks with Raila, Kuria stated that Raila has had it too good for far too long.
“He got it from Kibaki. Kibaki is no longer alive. He was having it with Uhuru. Take it from me because he will not have it again. “There will be no dividend for democracy,” the CS stated.
He also stated that no talks will take place between Raila and the ruling regime.
Kuria stated that the August 9 elections were very transparent, and that the election was upheld by the Supreme Court.
He believes Raila’s strategy of using violence to challenge elections will fail this time.
“Every time he comes to prosecute an election, it means we’ll deal with him the same way Kagame deals with his opponents.” Museveni’s approach to his opponent. “There is no other way,” Kuria concluded.
When asked how Kagame and Museveni deal with their opponents, Kuria stated that they protect their people’s sovereignty and democracy.
