Suna East MP Junet Mohamed has issued a tough statement following the departure of Governors Alfred Mutua and Amason Kingi from the Azimio coalition.
In what appeared like an indirect attack on the two Governors, Mohamed seemed to suggest the two might have been lured away from Azimio by money.
"If you have corruption cases, they were never going to disappear simply because you are supporting Raila Odinga. Same to murder cases. Your support has been on the assumption that you are innocent until proven guilty, a cornerstone of our criminal justice system," he stated.
The ODM Director of elections noted that Azimio presidential candidate Raila Odinga does not bribe leaders to support him.
"The Rt. Hon. Raila Odinga does not bribe leaders to support him. A man with a buying price cannot sustain the demands of a struggle. He doesn’t even bribe his supporters. And after more than 30 years in politics he is not going to start doing it now. We won’t allow him," Junet stated.
The legislator said that every leader who signed the Azimio coalition knew the contents of the document they signed.
He dismissed the claims of Kingi and Mutua of dishonesty within the coalition as he exuded confidence that the Azimio coalition will from the next government.
"Every leader who signed on Azimio pact knows its contents. This lie that some parts were hidden is mischievous and typical excuses of politicians on hire desperate for some personal respectability as they exit. To such, Azimio’s doors are wide open," he said.
