"Azimio MPs Are Failing Raila" Lawyer Says After Raila Announced Rallies Over Ouster of Cherera Four

Political Commentator and Lawyer Suleiman Bashir has argued that the Azimio La Umoja One Kenya Alliance Members of Parliament, are failing their leader Raila Odinga, as far as the move to defend the 4 commissioners of the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) is concerned.

According to Bashir, it was unfortunate for the MPs and lawyers of the 4 commissioners; Juliana Cherera, Justus Nyang'aya, Irene Masit and Francis Wanderi to walk out of the Justice and Legal Affairs Committee (JLAC) proceedings, as the committee was doing what it is supposed to do.

The Lawyer in his interview on Monday with NTV said that the Azimio MPs should be pushing for what Raila is saying before the JLAC committee and not to walk out, arguing that their failure has made Raila to plan for public rallies across the country on the fate of the 4 commissioners.

"The MPs or the people in the Azimio fold are the people who fail Raila in this exercise. They are the ones supposed to be championing on what he is saying. Now he is forced to call on public barazas and engage Kenyans to save the coarse. I am not sure how Kenyans will help him."

"There is a better and bigger way of bringing this issue out by the MPs or the Azimio members in JLAC, not just walking out. I am forced to ask why Raila is going to the people yet he has the numbers in parliament and in JLAC. What is going on is within the law, and the better way to counter the process is by the Azimio MPs to make their case before the house or the committee," said Bashir.
