How NASA MPs Will Use US Congress to Remove Godec

  • National Assembly Minority Leader John Mbadi has revealed that Opposition legislators will sign a petition to the US Parliament demanding that Ambassador Robert Godec is recalled from Kenya.

    The Suba South Member of Parliament accused Ambassador Godec of being the source of the political problems that Kenya is facing.

    “NASA MPs will demand that Godec be removed from Kenya because he has become a source of the problem in our politics,” Mbadi stated.

    Mbadi also faulted Godec and other envoys for failing to castigate the State after they disregarded court orders and withdrew security for Opposition leaders.

    “If they are honest, then they must tell this regime to uphold the rule of law, freedom of media and respect the Judiciary," Mbadi stated.

    He added: "They should be ashamed to tell us to recognise a regime that cannot obey court orders, arrests Opposition leaders and withdraw their security.”

    Homa Bay Senator Moses Kajwang, MPs Opiyo Wandayi (Ugunja), James Nyikal (Seme) and Samuel Atandi (Alego) also accused the envoys of playing partisan politics.

    Kisumu East legislator Shakeel Shabbir dismissed the envoys stating: “They have never supported our interests. They are only pushing for their interests including tenders.”

    On Sunday, NASA leader Raila Odinga asked US Ambassador Robert Godec and 10 other envoys to keep off Kenyan affairs after they demanded that the Opposition recognise Uhuru Kenyatta as President.
