Raila has finally broken his silence after Uhuru denied him Nusu Mkate.During Francis Nyenze’s funeral, this is what he said:
‘…tulisema sisi tulishinda na sisi tutaapishwa…tumeambiwa ati ooh treason treason, ati hiyo ni kifo. Mimi nataka kujibu Githu Muigai hapa na boss yake, ikiwa kama kifo ndiyo lazima itafanyika ndiyo tusiwe na wizi wa kura tena, tutaapishwa tukufe…’
‘…if death is the price that we must pay so that Kenyans get electoral justice, so that there is no rigging in future we are ready to pay that price. We will be sworn in, wafanye vile wanataka kufanya….’
Raila has stated in many occasions that he must be sworn in even if it means committing treason. Today he confirmed that nobody will prevent him from carrying a Bible.
Among those who attended the burial were NASA principles Raila Odinga, Musalia Mudavadi and Moses Wetangula who flew in at around midday, Tuesday.
Also in attendance was Speaker of the National Assembly Justin Muturi as well as Governors Charity Ngilu (Kitui), Kivutha Kibwana (Makueni) and a number of MPs.
President Uhuru Kenyatta who was expected to attend the burial ceremony skipped for reasons that remain unclear.
Thousands of people who made way to the burial ceremony were screened by armed policemen before being allowed to access the expansive compound.
Nyenze who had been fighting colon cancer for nine years succumbed to the illness on Wednesday, December 6.
