It is unfortunate that the name Bunge la Mwananchi (BLM) has been used in a protest letter by a one Ngunjiri Wambugu as one of the groups protesting a proposed meeting between President Obama and some CSOs he describes as anti-government. Let be on record that all BLM decisions are made on the floor of the house and the fact that such a thing was not discussed on the floor of BLM makes the letter null and void.
Furthermore, the fact that the name Bunge la Mwananchi has been mentioned without appending a signature and a name to it shows that it is forgery as any Tom, Dick and Hurry can just use the name Bunge la Mwananchi.
It must however be noted that as much as Bunge la Mwananchi is not party to the letter, concerns have been raised about the manner in which CSO leaders who are to meet President Obama were selected. As usual, BLM has been left out of such a meeting.
It is funny that some CSO and political party Gurus have been quick to condemn BLM on account of this letter but have not put any efforts to include BLM in their plans and just like the Government and Ngunjiri, the said CSO and political party gurus spare no chance to cannibalize BLM. It is funny that most people who are quick to condemn BLM have done nothing to build the capacity of BLM.
BLM as a social movement has been steadfast in championing the rights of the downtrodden and will continue doing so without fear of favor. On this account BLM takes this golden opportunity to condemn those who fraudulently used the name of BLM in such a manner and for this reason is calling for immediate arrest and prosecution of Ngunjiri Wambugu for impersonating BLM.
On behalf of BLM, let it be on record that BLM is not party to the letter and will never be diverted by such sideshows and will never be diverted in her quest to fight for Human Rights and Social Justice in Kenya.
In Solidarity with Bunge la Mwananchi for life.
