Duale asks Raila to accept defeat

National Assembly Majority Leader Aden Duale has asked National Super Alliance (NASA) to accept defeat and move on.

Mr Duale asked Raila to accept that President-elect Uhuru Kenyatta won the August General Election and the October 26 repeat presidential election.

He also asked the Opposition chief to embrace peace as more people are dying following violence in the country.

“How many lives do you want to see lost and property lost for you to reach where you want? Kenyans voted for President Uhuru and you moved to court, we accepted the ruling and the President was also elected on October, you cannot therefore continue charging Kenyans when the dice has been cast,” said Duale.

Elgeyo Senator Kipchumba Murkomen said that the former Prime Minister should accept the will of the people as was exercised during elections.

“It is unfortunate what we witnesses yesterday (Friday) where an old woman was stabbed and robbed of bananas and more property destroyed. It is sad that a leader who was once a Prime Minister is profiling a community to just churn a path to power.

“If God designed you to be an Opposition leader then be contented and serve the people. Otherwise this is just a waste of time and energy because Kenyans made their decision and elected President Uhuru Kenyatta, make peace with that,” stated Murkomen.

Raila on Friday condemned chaos that rocked his return from the US.

He blamed President-elect Uhuru and the Jubilee Government for orchestrating violence against his supporters.

“NASA strongly condemns what has happened today, that is becoming a pattern in our country. We hold President Uhuru Kenyatta and his illegitimate regime responsible for this absurd and unfortunate turn of events. The President has the blood of innocent Kenyans on his hands,” Raila stressed.

The former Prime Minister pointed out that acts of brutality spearheaded by security officials confirmed Jubilee’s dictatorship that is taking root in Kenya.

He urged Kenyans of goodwill to take action and support him to ensure that Jubilee Government is ejected from office.
