Muluka: Why AU Views Raila As An Insurgent And Not Opposition Leader, Had To Act

The resignation of former prime minister Raila Odinga from the role of African Union envoy on infrastructure continues to draw diverse opinions.

Some observers believe that the leader of the azimio la umoja one Kenya alliance party was shown the door; however, it is unclear if he was pushed out or simply resigned voluntarily.

Dr. Barak Muluka, a political analyst, has stated that Raila's recent call for mass action if President William Ruto fails to meet his demands is a strong indication that he is an insurgent and not an opposition leader.

In a Friday morning interview with KTN, Muluka explained that the African Union's decision to relieve him of his duties at the continental organization was based on this context.

"Raila's declaration of mass action and threat to force people to seize power will develop into an armed rebellion." "This is not an argument," remarked Muluka.

He added that AU cannot support Raila Odinga because he wants to create unrest in the country and make the state unruly.

"Raila Odinga desires to cause chaos in the nation. This is now an insurgency that seeks to undermine the government, not an opposition. "Obviously, the AU would not back him," added Muluka.
