UDA Secretary General Cleofas Malala has urged opposition leader Raila Odinga to respect the constitution.
Speaking yesterday at a membership campaign at the UDA office in Garissa, he denied Raila’s anti-government signature-gathering campaign.
“We would like to tell Raila Odinga that you will not allow us to destabilize or overthrow the existing legitimate government,” Malala said.
“Kenyans overwhelmingly voted yes. I need to be reminded that I am not above the law.”
In attendance were Isiolo Gov. Abdi Guyo, Garissa Township Councilor Mohammed Barrow and Fafi MP Salah Yakub, and former Tana River Senator Hussein Dad. Raila aims to collects 10 million signatures to oust President William Ruto from power.
He launched the action during Friday’s Saba Saba protests at Nairobi’s Kamkunji compound, saying Kenyans were fed up with rising commodity prices after the passage of the finance bill.
Malala said it was a pity that it violated the constitution she helped draft.
