Three Kieleweke leaders have warned their colleagues in tanga tanga group against discrediting them during the BBI report meeting in Mombasa. The leaders including CAS for Gender Rachael Shebesh, Homa Bay woman representative Gladys Wanga and Alego Usonga MP Samuel Atandi also want their opponents to guard their tongues in the rally.
Shebesh argued that the politicians allied to DP William Ruto had first criticized the BBI rallies and now give conditions after they made about-turn. The CAS official said they will not allow the tanga tanga group to either discredit them or the handshake between President Uhuru Kenyatta and ODM leader Raila Odinga.
“You’re welcomed to attend the Mombasa meeting but we’re telling you to have manners. You should neither quarrel us nor Uhuru and Raila,” Shebesh said. They spoke on Friday in Homa Bay town when they flagged off 240 youths who have been sponsored with by National Government Affirmative Action
Fund (NGAAF). Shebesh said they will not allow people who are not genuine in their support for BBI report to give them conditions. She told the tangatanga group not to attend the meeting with a different agenda apart from acknowledging leaders who initiated the BBI. “I tell Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen that Uhuru and Raila are not his age-mate. BBI and handshake were initiated by Uhuru and Raila hence you can’t separate them,” she added.
The former Nairobi woman representative said that time had come when they will not sit back and watch how junior leaders criticize President Kenyatta in public. She told the DP Ruto allies to respect presidency. Wanga told the tangatanga MPs to be cautious when they join the BBI team. She argued that it is would be wrong if the MPs make unappealing utterances against Raila and Uhuru.
“My brothers and sisters in tangatanga need to be humble in Mombasa. Failure to do so they will know that Mombasa has its owners,” Wanga said.
Atandi said the tangatanga MPs who do not hail from Coast region will not be given opportunity to speak in the Mombasa meeting. “The tangatanga MPs will not speak in Mombasa because the meeting targets people of Coast region. They should wait to speak when the meeting is held in their regions later,” Atandi said.
