CORD leader Kalonzo Musyoka tells QTV’s Kennedy Murithi that his last name betrays him when he asked why the coalition didn’t offer a credible opposition
I wish to clarify the following,
That this morning during a press briefing in response to jicho pevu and to the State of the Nation address by the President a few weeks ago, a journalist asked a question without identifying himself and/or the media house he works for.
I felt he had asked a misleading question and my answer to him was that his assumed political tilt was evident and reflective of the very polarized society that Kenya has become.
I in no way intended to neither demean the young man, nor do I or would I harbor any animosity toward him. To the contrary I have tirelessly worked for cohesion in this country and in my lifetime supported many leaders from various communities to include the Kalenjin, Luo, Kikuyu, Coast and this is common knowledge.
I did have tea with Mureithi and duly apologized for any hurt my remark would have caused, indeed it was with a light touch but I wish to apologize to him, the entire journalistic fraternity and anybody else who might feel the comments were offensive.
I remain committed to a united Kenya and a vibrant democracy.
H. E. HON. Stephen Kalonzo Musyoka
