Member of Parliament Osoro addressed Magret Nyakang’o following her recent arrest and subsequent release, stating, “Huyo mama abebe msalaba wake, akiiba pesa na Uhuru hatukuwa” (Let that woman bear her cross; when she was stealing money, Uhuru [President Kenyatta] wasn’t involved).
The statement made by MP Osoro has stirred controversy and added a political dimension to Nyakang’o’s legal situation.
Magret Nyakang’o, known for her involvement in advocacy work and social causes, faced public scrutiny after being arrested.
The statement by MP Osoro reflects the political tensions surrounding Nyakang’o’s case, with public figures choosing sides and using the incident to further their political agendas.
Osoro’s assertion implies a desire to absolve the president of any association with Nyakang’o’s legal troubles, attempting to draw a clear line between the alleged wrongdoing and the head of state.
As Nyakang’o was released following her arrest, the incident has raised questions about the nature of the charges, the legal process, and the motivations behind the arrest.
Critics argue that the politicization of the situation detracts from the need for a fair and impartial investigation.
The public reaction to MP Osoro’s statement has been mixed, with some supporting the call for accountability and others expressing concern over the use of Nyakang’o’s case for political maneuvering.
The incident underscores the complex interplay between politics and the legal system, leaving citizens eager for a more transparent and unbiased examination of the allegations against Magret Nyakang’o.
