Tourism assistant minister Cecily Mbarire says former Advisor to the Prime Minister Raila Odinga Miguna Miguna should not be intimidated and harassed for giving what she describes as the true personality of the PM. Mbarire who is also the Runyenjes MP said Miguna has a right to give the kind of information he gave because it has helped Kenyans to Know what kind of a presidential aspirant they are dealing with. "Muguna has helped Kenyans because they will now be able to make a better choice when it comes to the elections and he should be encouraged to give more," said Mbarire.
The Assistant Minister who was speaking at her Constituency Development Fund (CDF) office in Runyenjes when she distributed 5 microscopes to five CDF funded dispensaries said more people should come out and remove masks from the other presidential aspirants. She told those who are threatening the former PM advisor including immigration Minister Otieno Kajwang that it was wrong for them to do so as the constitution gives the right to information and freedom of expression.
She asked the Prime minster Raila Odinga to come out and clear his name against the scathing allegations against him and tell Kenyans whether they were true or not. She at the same time protected the Party of National Unity (PNU) side of the government against the accusations of having sponsored Miguna to tarnish the name of the PM.
Mbarire who promised to send more microscopes to three more dispensaries said Miguna in his book "Unpeeling back the mask" did so voluntarily without the influence of any other person. She said Miguna's claim that he had deep information on how personalities in ODM were involved in the post election chaos could have credence. "All along it has been said the ICC case against the six Kenyans was a plot for blocking Deputy Prime Minster Uhuru Kenyatta and Eldoret North Mp William Ruto from vying for the presidency," she said.
Mbarire who is a very close ally of the DPM said Kenyatta and Ruto were not vying for presidency in the last General elections and thus it fails logic for what reasons they could have perpetrated the chaos. The legislator said Miguna should give more evidence on the post election mayhem and it might help to acquit the four suspect who have been charged with crime against Humanity.
She said before people start intimidating Miguna they should investigate the truth about what he has exposed and then conclude where it was true or false. The lawmaker was reacting to the launch of a memoir by Miguna in which he has exposed a lot on the PM's underhand activities and his allies. Following the launch Miguna has received a lot of condemnation from the PM's allies.
