Kethi Kilonzo shames Raila in surprise statement

The sharp lawyer has in the past supported Raila in top cases

Kilonzo, who has in the past been associated with the NASA leadership, criticised Odinga and Musyoka over their plans to swear themselves in at a controversial ceremony slotted for January 30th.

In an opinion piece published by the Standard, she termed the plan as unconstitutional and one meant to destroy Kenya as a Nation and its people.

“By proposing to form a government in exile, like the exiled leader of the secessionist movement in Catalonia has, NASA is aware that their proposed course of action threatens to cannibalise our Constitution, the nation and its people,” Kilonzo stated.

The daughter of former Constitutional Affairs Minister Mutula Kilonzo advised the NASA principals to look for an alternative solution to achieve electoral justice.

“One of the mechanisms suitable for electoral justice is a popular referendum, like the once-hyped Okoa Kenya movement. The other is the dissolution of Parliament which as constituted is unconstitutional. There are many others,” Kethi advised.

Kethi’s elder brother, Mutula Kilonzo Junior, is the Senator for Makueni and also one of the top parliamentary leaders in NASA.

He has been silent on the plans to hold a parallel swearing in ceremony.
