‘You will be prosecuted if you blow a whistle without substantial evidence to back up your claims.’ President Uhuru Kenyatta warned people who say that there is corruption in public offices but fail to come up with evidence for such claims.
This has come when Ethics and Anti-corruption Commission (EACC) is breathing fire down on the leader of opposition and Coalition of Reform and Democracy (CORD) flag bearer, Raila Odinga to appear before the commission to give more light about Eurobond saga or face arrest.
In his answer, Raila rubbished those threats by saying that the commission is not doing its work to the best of its ability, instead it is using intimidation and threat against him. He continued to say that as a whistle blower the anti-graft body should protect him. But if they think threats could force him to record a statement, then he dared them by saying that he has been arrested more than 100 times and fear he has non.
The government knows that arresting Raila Odinga is not an option because his supporters are that predictable..
What will Uhuru Kenyatta do, now that Raila has stood his ground?
It is not easy to deal with a person who controls the minds of supporters like a time bomb. Touching him is like pressing the killer button; the country will erupt into chaos. But you still need to follow the law, teach him a lesson that no one is above the law.
Mmm! The situation is tight and the solution is nowhere for anyone’s grabs. The anti-corruption body has invalid powers against Raila Odinga.
According to an influential literature professor, the Kenyan president made that directive without considering the backlash and it is happening right in his eyes.
Already the EACC has confirmed that Raila’s CORD has delivered some information and that he will be available when they need him. I guess this is just a way to get outer hot water. The fire was too much that it was the only way to walk away as the winner.
