Heckling Azimio leaders is undemocratic, archaic – Kithure Kindiki
Tharaka Nithi Senator Prof. Kindiki Kithure has condemned heckling of Azimio’s running mate and Narc Kenya party leader Martha Karua in Kiambaa, Kiambu county.
Kindiki says the chaos were undemocratic and obsolete urging Kenyans to allow Azimio politicians to campaign freely since UDA and Kenya Kwanza coalition supporters will not be swayed by the endorsement of Karua.
Kindiki watered-down Azimio's campaign framework saying it is already at the eleventh hour and it will not change much.
“Heckling or obstructing opponents’ meetings is undemocratic & archaic. Let those Azimio bands make their pitch freely anywhere in the country. It will not change much, not even their newly named running mate will withstand the UDA/Kenya Kwanza tide. It is too late, the die is cast,” Kindiki wrote on Facebook.
This follows Kabogo’s statement dismissing the scheme as one organized by his political enemies to depict his party as violent.
Kabogo, in a video he has posted on his Facebook account, unearthed that a group of men wearing his Tujibebe Wakenya party t-shirts have been organized to shout down Karua who is on her tour in Kiambu County days after she was picked to deputize Raila Odinga in the August polls.
“Those trying to portray Tujibebe as a violent party by making t-shirts and heckling Martha Karua, shame on you. That is being primitive and an ancient way of doing politics, stop the nonsense,” he posted.
Karua is touring various parts of Kiambu County to not only popularize Azimio la Umoja coalition but also inform rebellious voters what the coalition stands for and how it will impact their lives should they manage to take over after President Uhuru Kenyatta exits stage come August.
Among other areas, Karua is set to tour Kiambaa after a successful tour in Limuru, Kiambu town, Gatundu South, Thika, Juja and Githurai areas.
