Deported Kenyan lawyer Miguna Miguna has blasted United States Ambassador to Kenya Kyle McCarter after he declared his stand on the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) report.
On Monday, Ambassador McCarter called for the implementation of the recommendations made in the 156-page report ahead of the 2022 general elections. While assuring the US support, McCarter said the implementation of the report will achieve unity in Kenya.
“The United States is a great friend of Kenya and, although I do not agree with all details in the BBI, the USA fully supports it for Kenya to remain a united country," said McCarter while speaking in Kapsabet, Nandi County.
But Miguna accused Ambassador McCarter of double standards citing the case of Senator Amos Wako, the former Attorney-General who was recently barred from setting foot on the US soil over corruption allegations. Wako is a member of the taskforce that prepared the BBI report.
"The US Ambassador Kenya is a cartel. He hailed the banning of Amos Wako from the US but supports other BBI cat walking con-men and con-women like Anne Waiguru, Uhuru Kenyatta and Raila Odinga. Mr Ambassador, stop asking Kenyans to drink sulphuric acid," Miguna tweeted on Tuesday.
