Kimani Ichung’wah, the majority leader of the National Assembly, has refuted claims that he encouraged attacks on the Northlands farm, which is owned by the family of the late president Uhuru Kenyatta.
Ichung’wah said that his now-famous words made the weekend before the invasion were only meant to forewarn the fourth president against using violence if he did not stop sponsoring opposition initiatives.
The Kikuyu MP demanded an investigation while also accusing Raila Odinga, the head of Azimio la Umoja One in Kenya, of wanting to enter government through a handshake and saying that the opposition has neglected constitutional routes in its search for solutions to urgent societal issues.
At an event at his former secondary school that was attended by Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua, the third-term congressman made the comments in Kianyaga, Kirinyaga County.
Ichung’wa forewarned that if the former president’s suspected financing of opposition activities persisted, the farm would be in danger.
Instead, the lawmaker questioned why there were no police present at the property owned by Kenyatta, accusing him and Mr. Odinga of planning the attack and placing the responsibility on the Kenya Kwanza government.
