Kenya Prime Minister Raila: “NO” Camp leaders are non-reformists
Mr. Odinga said those leading the opposition to the new constitution had been in power for years, but failed to give Kenyans even a draft to consider.
He spoke when he received a goodwill delegation of community leaders and Mau Mau veterans from the Meru region at his Karen home in Nairobi yesterday.
He, however, exuded confidence that Kenyans will deliver the new constitution on August 4, with a victory for ‘Yes’.
He likened the single party regime of the 1980s to a cruel lion, adding that the beast did not stop the clamour for change in the country.
The Prime Minister said those opposed to the new constitution have underrated the positive will of Kenyans and have forgotten Kenya’s liberation history from the colonial period to the present day.
Imenti Central MP Gitobu Imanyara, who led the delegation, said attacks on US ambassador Michael Ranneberger by the ‘No’ team were misplaced and were also against Kenya’s struggle for freedom and good governance.
He asked Kenyans not to succumb to the whims of the Youth for Kanu 92 operatives out to derail the realization of a good constitution for the country.
