A month after he launched an online petition seeking to divide Kenya along Jubilee and National Super Alliance (NASA) lines, Former Prime Minister Raila Odinga’s technical advisor Dr David Ndii has mellowed down and changed tunes.

In a tweet on his official account today, Ndii has advised Jubilee leaders and supporters to secede if they feel the Kenyan constitution is hurting their interests.

A NASA supporter had tagged him to twitter post raising concern that Jubilee was allegedly keen on rigging the repeat elections in President Uhuru Kenyatta’s favour and that the best route for the opposition was to push ahead with the quest for secession.

“@DavidNdii why not forget about election and form our own country? It is clear Uhuru will do anything to stay in power,” Owiti Oguma whose twitter handle said.

In response, Ndii said it was not NASA supporters who needed to secede but Jubilee supporters.

“They don’t like our Constitution, they should form their own. If they hold a sham election of the 26th, they’ll have done exactly that,” said Ndii.

His secession petition drew anger across the country.

Raila disowned the crusade for secession in a live interview with broadcaster Yvonne Okwara on KTN News.
