A few days ago, I posted this blog and later came to find out Kimemia actually made the announcement banning political meetings during the period when Raila’s petition remains pending at the Supreme Court after he and Kimaiyo met with Raila. In other words, Raila had already in his wisdom and judgment agreed to suspend his then planned rallies as he has.
The Daily Nation is now reporting that Uhuru was in Eldoret today doing exactly what the National Security Advisory Committee (NSAC) banned just the other day and that’s holding a political meeting when the Cord petition remains pending at the Supreme Court.
How come? Why is Uhuru holding meetings in violation of the ban to total silence from the likes of Kimemia? Is this not evidence this is part of the scheme to maintain the bogus results announced by the obviously compromised IEBC that Uhuru won the presidency when he, in fact, did not?
If Kimemia has to maintain any semblance of credibility and objectivity most doubt he has, anyway, he must outright condemn and call Uhuru on this and more specifically, direct him to cease forthwith these shenanigans merely intended to propagate the false notion that he was elected president when we all know–including him, that he was not.
In a Standard story titled Kenya’s Top Security Organ Warns Raila Against Holding Rallies, it is reported that The National Security Advisory Committee (NSAC) has asked Raila to stop holding public rallies and has also upheld a ban on political meetings.
NSAC claims the public meetings were “unwarranted and could trigger animosity and violence.”
The committee, which is chaired by head of civil service Francis Kimemia met on Wednesday evening and declared they will not allow the meetings to continue as planned.
The PM and anyone else is within their fully protected constitutional right to hold any rallies consistent with the law, including the Chief Justice’s directive regarding not discussing the pending petition outside the courts.
Kimemia who thinks and acts as if he is the president of the republic and his henchmen are merely abusing state office in efforts to intimidate Raila to silence while they connive ways to install their illegally declared “winner” of the poll as president.
They are foolish if they think they can return us to the Moi era we have long rejected and left behind where freedom of speech was muzzled and abuse of state instruments to suppress or altogether suffocate democracy to death was paramount.
Those days are gone as these exposed and soon to be irrelevant, powerless characters will find out, if they haven’t already figured this or have and are acting ignorant of the fact.
Following my posting this blog, I learned that Raila, in fact, had already agreed to suspend rallies Cord was planning to hold pending resolution of his case at the Supreme Court after meeting with national security chiefs Kimemia merely announced what was already agreed to.
