Controversial Canadian based lawyer general Miguna Miguna has once again attacked the opposition leader Raila Odinga following the problems bedeviling Rarieda member of parliament Otiende Amollo.
According to Miguna Miguna, Raila Odinga is allergic to people who are smart upstairs since he considers them a threat. While justifying his sentiment, the lawyer recalled an instance where one dean from the Nairobi University warned him about the opposition leader.
“A message to Otiende Amollo: In December 2007 as I battled Samuel Kivuitu, PNU and other electoral thieves in Nairobi, the then Dean of the Faculty of Law at @uon called me to his office and said, “Miguna, why are you helping @Raila Odinga? The man hates intelligent people.” Wrote Miguna on his twitter handle.
Miguna Miguna’s sentiments came in the backdrop of push and pulls amongst the Orange Democratic Movement leaders allied to the opposition boss.
While others have advocated for zero changes on the BBI Bill, there are those legislators who have maintained that they cannot act as conveyor belts by just endorsing the BBI bill.
Those who have pushed for changes in the document include the Rarieda member of parliament Otiende Amollo and Siaya senator James Aggrey Orengo. Specifically, the issue has been with regards to the additional 70 constituencies which they have termed illegal, arguing that the mandate to distribute constituencies lies squarely with the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission(IEBC).
Besides, these leaders have maintained that there are some regions that have been marginalized for the longest time since independence hence it makes no sense to distribute constituencies unfairly across the nation.
“Mr. Speaker as a matter of law, and this is where I disagree with my chairman, a constitutional amendment can be unconstitutional.” Stated Otiende Amollo in reference to the minority leader John Mbadi.
“Now what we have done, and professors of law like John Mbadi saying is not true but that is your view. I am talking about the law. John Mbadi you’ve not stepped in Law school so just allow me,” added Amollo.
