The planned thanksgiving and prayers in Afraha Stadium on Saturday has gained heat with opposition leader claiming uhuru and Ruto are planning to dance on the graves of PEV victims. Raila claims that the country needs healing and not mocking rallies which could cause more division on Kenyans.
Raila Odinga, who is in France attending a special meeting of the Emerging Markets Forum hosted by the Governor of Banque de France, said in a statement that Jubilee’s plan to celebrate their triumph over ICC cases was akin to dancing to the graves of the dead in celebration of death.
“It amounts to mocking the dead and the surviving victims of Post Election Violence for the President and his Deputy to assemble their political supporters at Afraha Stadium to celebrate the end of the pursuit of justice over the atrocities of the mayhem in 2007/2008,” the former Prime Minister’s statement read in part.
“Clearly, as a nation, there is nothing to celebrate about. Instead, we have to reflect on the many critical decisions that we need to make. We have many people who we still need to condole and reparate and a national sense of justice that needs to be reconfirmed”, he said.
