Why Raila is being blamed for frustrating Punguza Mizigo Initiative


Ekuru Aukot is blaming politicians opposed to Punguza Mizigo Bill for influencing the decision by the Courts to stop debate of the Bill across the 47 counties.

The High Court through Justice James Makau stopped the party from presenting the Bill to the Speaker of the National Assembly pending a case filed in court against it.

And while the judge ordered that the ruling remain in force for 14 days to allow all parties named in the petition to file their responses, Thirdway Alliance has protested the move over claims that they were only allowed less than a day to file their response.

Thirdway Alliance leader Dr Ekuru Aukot however blames Hon Raila Odinga, Wiper party leader Kalonzo Musyoka, FORD Kenya boss Moses Wetangula and National Assembly Majority Leader Aden Duale of being behind his woes at the corridors of justice.

According to Ekuru Aukot, the four popular leaders are on record for rallying and inciting Kenyans to reject the Punguza Mizigo Bill.

The Business Daily records that Aukot also blames the four of undermining devolution by opposing increased resources and funding to the wards and working with “a wolf” in the courts of law to frustrate the pro-people initiative by sponsoring the “frivolous” petitions before court.

“We are now more than convinced that they are the sponsors of the frivolous petitions against the Bill in court. The way we see it, the political hunter gatherers are now working with a wolf in the courts of law to frustrate the pro-people initiative.

“The wolf in the corridors of justice is clearly holding brief for the greedy political class and is using and abusing his judicial authority to drive political agenda in a court of law,” added Dr Aukot.
