Machakos Governor Alfred Mutua says there are opportunistic leaders out to try reap from the BBI. This is despite Raila Odinga carrying the popular initiative on his back. In a statement to newsrooms on Tuesday, Mutua describe the leaders as ‘hyenas waiting for the spoilt of the hunt.’
”It is baffling and to all purposes an indication of cognitive dissonance that some highly opportunistic leaders who were not party to the handshake and who have benefitted from the handshake asking Raila Odinga to forego the benefits in their favor,” the statement read in part.
The Maendeleo Chap Chap Leader said, without the handshake, the country would currently be unstable and ungovernable ”even for cowards who cower when the going gets tough.”
The Governor said there was a need for political hygiene in the country’s political space. He has also called on leaders to give Raila Odinga his respect as a leader.
”Raila Odinga is one of my competitors in my quest to be the next president. However, I have to respect him and give him his due and not try to use his efforts for self-benefit as others are doing.”
