Fearless Sheikh Juma Criticizes CS Aden Duale

In rejecting President William Ruto's proposal to establish an opposition leader's office, Mombasa Senator Mohamed Faki has joined a group of leaders from the Azimio La Umoja One Kenya Alliance, particularly those from Raila Odinga's Orange Democratic Movement.

Yesterday, during a meeting of ODM delegates led by former Prime Minister Raila Odinga, Faki stated that the position is unconstitutional and must be subject to a referendum in order to be established.

"A referendum must be held in order to set up the opposition office. According to the Standard, he stated, "It is against the law to initiate such a crucial and weighty process through Parliament."

This comes after Kalonzo Musyoka, the leader of the Wiper party, and other leaders from his camp endorsed the creation of the position, stating that if it is created in good faith, it is a step in the right direction. This came a number of hours earlier.

Other ODM leaders argued that the position was created to subdue Raila, while Ruto's Kenya Kwanza camp leaders said it was created to ensure that the opposition is well-organized to provide oversight to the current government.
