- Ndindi said as a coalition, they had informed Raila of his impending defeat long before the August elections even though he had the support of the former regime.
- The MP said all Kenyans know that Kenya Kwanza won as they came together and rallied behind President Ruto.
Kiharu MP Ndindi Nyoro has said that Kenya Kwanza leaders are not afraid of Azimio La Umoja Coalition leader Raila Odinga over his threats to organise more demonstrations.
The MP, a close ally of President William Ruto, has said that Raila is dealing with ‘sons of Mau Mau’ who are not easily intimidated.
He dismissed Raila’s claims that they planned to disrupt his demonstrations by causing mayhem saying they have better things to do.
Ndindi said as a coalition, they had informed Raila of his impending defeat long before the August elections even though he had the support of the former regime.
The MP said all Kenyans know that Kenya Kwanza won as they came together and rallied behind President Ruto.
“We told him we would defeat him but he did not listen to us. Kenyans came together in that fight, and it was not a physical fight, it was a political war,” he said.
“We told you a long time ago that you’re dealing with Mau Mau’s sons. You’re dealing with a battle-hardened leader who was brought up drinking mursik.”
The MP spoke on Saturday at Technology Primary School.
He said the only reason they have not been engaging Raila is that they are busy implementing programmes for the benefit of Kenyans and not because they are afraid of him.
He said their respect for the country also prohibits them from engaging in shouting matches with Raila.
“Let me tell you the truth. Yes, we are fighters. We are Mau Mau but we chose which battles to engage in. We don’t engage in charlatan battles. We fight real battles like the one that was there in August. Sio hiyo ya Kurushiana mawe,”
On Thursday, the MP said demonstrations will not help better the living standards of Kenyans and neither will they lower the cost of commodities.
He joined his counterparts in reiterating that the Kenya Kwanza government will not engage in dialogue on government sharing saying that Raila should wait for 2027 to try his luck again.
National Assembly Majority leader Kimani Ichung’wah said though they value the tranquillity that Kenyans have enjoyed over the years, they are only ready to dialogue on matters that appertain the livelihoods of Kenyans.
“If you want to dialogue with us on how to bring down the cost of living without blackmail, we are ready to dialogue,” he said.
What we’re not ready to dialogue on is anything that’s outside the constitution, for you to blackmail the country through anarchy to safeguard your selfish ends."
