Boni Khalwale Takes On Raila, Compares Him With Jair Bolsonaro, and Trump

As it seems, Kakamega senator — Boni Khalwale is still not over with the former prime minister —Raila Odinga over what he said "Assault on Democracy & on peaceful transfer of power."

The trend which he says started with the former Unite States' president — Donald Trump, was witnessed in Kenya, and most recently —Brazilian elections where the immediate former president(Jair Bolsonaro) lost in the elections.

According to the senator, the world should condemn the acts of the said three leaders for their acts.

"The emergence of a trend of assault on democracy & on the peaceful transfer of power, as witnessed at the US Congress, at Bomas in Kenya & at congress in Brazil is sad & regrettable. The world must put a firm stamp of condemnation on Donald Trump, Raila Odinga & Jair Bolsonaro," —Boni Khalwale.

During the last general elections, Raila Odinga lost. But the events at Bomas during the final day before announcement of the presidential results seemed to have angered the Kenya Kwanza followers and leaders. Before announcing the results, leaders from One Kenya Alliance tried to disrupt the event. In the end, the security situation was restored and under the tight security, Wafula Chebukati announced that President Ruto had won in the election.

After losing during the last presidential elections, Brazilian president refused to congratulate the winner who was his opponent, Luiz Inácio Lula. Jair Bolsonaro did not even attended the inauguration of the current president. And yesterday, Bolsonaro supporters attacked government house.
