From Imperial President to King: a people betrayed

Members of Parliament have betrayed the people of Kenya, particularly the majority poor and exploited and the struggle for a new progressive national constitution.

No wonder the majority of the MPs that are tampering with the constitution in Naivasha have never been involved in the struggle for democracy in the country. They were part of the dictatorship that was opposed to democratic reforms.

While patriots and progressive Kenyans were being persecuted by the Moi and Kenyatta regimes for struggling for liberation from dictatorship, those who are now purporting to decide about the constitution for Kenya were accumulating wealth through corrupt deals. The few of the MPs at Naivasha that were reformers yesterday have now turned into opportunists and traitors and are either silent or collude with those who are manufacturing the constitution which Kenyans should reject.

Social Democratic Party chair Mwandawiro Mghanga weighs in on the Naivasha Consensus.
