The ODM boss who was among the key organizers of the inauguration of former NASA presidential candidate Raila Odinga as people’s president is crying out for justice.
ODM Executive Director Oduor Ong’wen claim his travelling documents including passport were suspended in 2018 hence can not travel outside the country.
On Monday, May 24, Ong’wen took to his Twitter to express how he has been denied his rights three years down the line despite the fact that Raila and Uhuru buried the hatchet through the March 2018 handshake.
“I have been stopped from travelling out of the country because my passport was suspended in 2018 for my role in organizing the swearing in of Raila Odinga and People’s Assembly. I’m more bemused than annoyed,” he said.
After the 2017 disputed General Election, Ong’wen Miguna Miguna and James Orengo were among the leaders who ensured that the swearing-in of NASA principal Raila Odinga as the “people’s president” was a success.
The mock swearing-in of Odinga happened after Raila boycotted 2017 General Election re-run, saying it would be rigged in favor of President Uhuru Kenyatta.
A week later, the government embarked prosecuting the leaders who made the event a success.
The first in line was controversial lawyer Miguna Miguna who was deported following his role in the unofficial swearing -in of Raila Odinga.
However, a month after Raila’s swearing in, President Uhuru Kenyatta welcomed Raila in government where the two formidable leaders buried the hatchet.
Despite Uhuru and Raila putting their political differences aside, Raila’s puppets still continue to complain against the Jubilee government .
