GIDEON MOI breaks his silence on RAILA’s nationwide protests and the invasion of Northlands City in UHURU


The current Azimio mass action by Raila Odinga and the consequent assault of former President Uhuru Kenyatta’s Northlands City by thugs who are allegedly on Deputy President Rigathi Gachaua’s payroll have been addressed by KANU National Chairperson Gideon Moi, who has come out of hiding.

For the first time since he had been away for some time, Moi spoke out against the mayhem seen during the two demonstration exercises as well as the destruction of property, including the invasion of Northlands City.

The leader of the KANU party asserts that even though Kenyans should remain united despite being on opposing sides of the political spectrum even though the Constitution grants the right to picket.

We must all strongly condemn the destruction of private property in any area of this country, whether it is a stall, shop, supermarket, or even a farm, Moi said, even as we exercise our freedom to picket under Article 37.

Following the burning of a church and mosque in Kibra, the KANU leader also spoke out against the development of political indifference into religious strife.

“Our differing political viewpoints shouldn’t turn into hostility against religion. Whatever our convictions, the Constitution’s recognition of the Almighty God’s supremacy and its protection of religious freedom serve to reiterate the value of religious tolerance, he said.

As the August 2022 General Elections were declared and the Supreme Court’s decision on the presidential petition followed, Moi remained quiet.

Despite being a part of the coalition, KANU did not participate in the widespread demonstrations with co-principals Kalonzo Musyoka, Martha Karua, and Raila Odinga.
