He dismissed Miguna, saying ODM never expected he would ‘stoop to a political demagogue.’
“He said he has evidence (on post-election violence) that he keeps to himself. He should be arrested and charged with withholding such evidence. This is a serious offence,” Kajwang’ argued. “We pity him. We thought he was a young man of promising character and intellectual capacity. He is now behaving like a political hireling,” Kajwang’ said.
Mr Kajwang also said those who have been implicated in Miguna’s book, Peeling Back the Mask; A Question for Justice could sue the media house and the publishing firms that have helped spread the content of the book.
“Some content of the book as serialised are defamatory to people quoted and these people are likely to sue the publisher and the media houses and not Miguna because those defamed should look for where there is more money,” he said.
At the same time, two ODM MPs portrayed in Miguna’s book as being incompetent have come out fighting.
Nyakach MP Polyns Ochieng and his Nyando counterpart Fred Outa have reacted angrily to claims by the former Prime Minister’s adviser that they were not good parliamentarians.
Miguna claimed that Mr Ochieng and Mr Outa were dour, lacklustre and clueless parliamentarians. He said in the book that the duo’s contribution in the House could not fill a two-lined paragraph.
But the MPs in separate interviews said the content in the book was not factual and accused Miguna of using the book to settle personal vendetta with elected leaders.
