Trade and Investment Cabinet Secretary Moses Kuria has warned the opposition that he government will deal with the opposition the way Uganda and Rwanda has always done. Speaking to BBC’s Focus on Africa, Kuria condemned Azimio leader Raila Odinga for the ongoing anti-government protests
“He’s had it for too long. He has had it good for too long. He had it with Kibaki (Mwai Kibaki). Kibaki is no more. Kibaki is dead. Kibaki is gone. He had it with Uhuru. He will not have it again, take it from me you cannot then there’s not going to be any dividend for democracy,” He said.
The Minister said Kenya went through a very transparent elections that went all the way to the Supreme Court. “The Supreme Court pronounced itself, you know, every time coming to prosecute an election, then it means that we’re going to deal with him the way Kagame (Paul Kagame, President of Rwanda) deals with his opponents. The way Museveni (Yoweri Museveni, President of Uganda) deals with his opponent. There’s no other way.” he said
The minister said the opposition’s call for mass action was “economic terrorism” and warned that the government will take action to prevent any further disruption, stating that “We are going to do what we need to do.”
Kuria’s comments followed the Raila Odinga led March 20th demonstrations that resulted in businesses shutting down in Nairobi and Kisumu.
