NASA presidential candidate Raila Odinga will prioritise the implementation of the controversial TJRC report if he forms the next government, nominated MP Oburu Oginga has said.
On Tuesday, he said the report will address land issues, including crimes against humanity, which Jubilee government has failed to make public.
Oginga said Kenyans have been kept in the dark on the contents of the report.
“When Raila assumes power, the TJRC report will be made public for Kenyans to decide which aspects should be adopted,” he said in Nyangweso village, Gem constituency, after meeting ODM delegates. Oginga defended Raila against Jubilee’s claim he incited Maasais. He said Raila meant the Maasai community should not sell their land haphazardly until the TJRC report is out and those culpable are exposed.
“He did not mean that those who appropriately and genuinely bought land there to be evicted,” Oginga said.
He took a swipe at National Sssembly majority leader Aden Duale and Interior CS Joseph Nkaiserry who are calling action to be taken against Raila.
