The senator of Kirinyaga, Daniel Karaba is urging the responsible parties to charge John Mbadi with treason. Apparently, ODM chairman, John Mbadi referred to Raila Odinga as your Excellency during the funeral of the late Fidel Castro. According to Daniel Karaba, this is a complete lack of respect for the president of Kenya. This is because; John Mbadi’s act of referring to Raila Odinga as Your Excellency shows that he regards him as the president of Kenya.
John Mbadi’s actions according to Daniel Karaba sent the wrong message to the people of Kenya as well as other mourners in other parts of the world. His actions also border on treason and he should be punished according to the Kenyan Law which has a death penalty for anyone who commits treason, murder or armed robbery. Daniel Karaba also added that the ODM chairman should be made to apologize to the citizens of Kenya.
