I Am Not Afraid Of Prison Or Death – President Odinga tells Uhuru on NRM

President Raila Odinga has said he is ready to be charged with treason and will not tire to fight for electoral justice.

President Raila said the Jubilee government has panicked because of the formation of National Resistance Movement.

He said the NRM is an idea whose time has come.

“We are yet to register National Resistance Movement, how do you ban something that doesn’t exist, they (Jubilee) have panicked,” he said.

President Raila was speaking in Luanda, Vihiga County when he addressed mourners at the burial of Justus Etale father to ODM Director of communication Philip Etale.

“I don’t fear to be charged with treason because in 1982 I survived,” he said.

NASA leaders said the push for electoral justice will not stop until justice is done.

President Raila said Miguna Miguna is a Kenyan born in Ahero and they will fight to bring him back after he was forcefully deported to Canada.

Canada on Friday said it is deeply concerned by the government’s crackdown on the opposition.

The Global Affairs office spoke, in a statement on its website, a day after Miguna was deported.

Canada further questioned the unlawful detention of opposition members without due process or access to counsel, and the shutdown of certain media outlets.

“In the words of the Chief Justice of Kenya’s Supreme Court, “there have been worrying developments in the administration of justice that threaten the rule of law. A free media and adherence to the rule of law are essential components of democracy.”
