Odinga’s ODM say Museveni visit an insult to Kenyans, he is not welcome

Uganda President Yoweri Museveni’s visit to Kenya is an “insult” to the public, ODM has said, adding the recently re-elected leader is not welcome.


According Kenyan local website the-star.co.ke, “We are treating Museveni as an unwelcome visitor and urge him to stay away with his bad manners,” the website quoted the party’s secretary for political affairs.

“We caution him that our people may be compelled to execute a citizen arrest against him should he set foot on our soil,” Opiyo Wandayi added in a statement on Monday.

Wandayi said Uhuru cannot purport to host Museveni without placing Migingo Island on the table for discussion.

“A President who cannot defend the territorial integrity of his country has no business remaining in office,” he said.
