Mudavadi’s message to Jubilee after his gun license was revoked
Mudavadi warned of dire consequences
The NASA co-principal in a statement said that he will not beg the Jubilee government or go to court to have his security reinstated.
“Being licensed to carry a firearm and having armed bodyguards isn’t a favour from the Jubilee regime. It is a legal obligation of the state to render such protection unconditionally,” read the statement.
The opposition co-principal warned that it is only a matter of time before they got the results of disobeying the law because Jubilee is setting a precedent that would befall them once out of power.
Mudavadi said that his protection is provided for by the law governing the protection of former vice presidents and prime minister which cannot be implemented and withdrawn at the whim of the police, an incumbent minister or the president.
His statement comes just days after the government withdrew security detail attached to opposition allied politicians.
Musalia Mudavadi served as Vice President of the Republic of Kenya in 2002 and Deputy Prime Minister under the coalition government of 2008 to 2012.
