NASA principals and opposition leaders will now require clearance from the State House before leaving the country, Raila Odinga has revealed.
This is after Wiper leader, Kalonzo Musyoka was stopped by authorities at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) on Thursday morning.
Kalonzo, who was accompanied by Bungoma Senator Moses Wetangula was traveling to Uganda for a graduation ceremony at the Uganda Technology and Management University (UTAMU).
Odinga has condemned the new directive, saying that the government was creating an atmosphere of fear.
”These attempts point to a rapid deterioration of the political situation in the country and the emergence of an all out effort to create an atmosphere of fear. They point to a resurgence of the old order, with the Executive giving itself powers that do not exist in our laws,” read the statement in part.
He has also said that the move is an infringement on the freedoms and harassment of the opposition leadership. He also pointed out that the ruling regime has become increasingly paranoid.
The former Prime Minister added that the coalition leadership does not intend to seek clearance from the President before leaving the country.
”NASA wishes to inform the Jubilee administration that its leadership does not intend to seek any clearance from State House to travel abroad.”
