The former Kakamega Senator Boni Khalwale Ng has launched a fierce attack on Tanzania’s Foreign Affairs Minister Palamagamba Kabudi over the remarks he made during the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) launch on November 27, 2019, at Bomas of Kenya.
Khalwale speaking during a live show on NTV on Tuesday, December 3, expressed his disappointment on Kabudi’s sentiments claiming the sentiments were not pleasant at all.
“That man who came from Tanzania, it was impunity, and with due respect to whoever invited him, that we allowed him to lecture us,” Khalwale stated.
Kabudi who represent the Tanzania Presisent Magufuli during the BBI launch urged Kenyans to emulate Tanzanians in fostering peace addind, “Kenya is a great country no doubt. Kenya is endowed with dynamic people, innovators, people filled with talents and entrepreneurs. How can such great people allow themselves to be dominated by tribalism?”
Following Kabudi’s statement, Khalwale stated that foreign minister had no right to lecture Kenyans since the country was ahead of Tanzania in many sectors, adding Kabudi did not follow protocal when he stood to address the gathering at Bomas of Kenya.
The constitution of Kenya speaks to how you should allow such a dignitary to speak. It states that if a visiting head of state or dignitary wants to address Kenyans, he must first go through the National Assembly or the Senate,” Khalwale further stated.
