Narc Kenya leader Martha Karua has condemned Uhuru Kenyatta’s re-run for presidency as an assault on democracy.
Hon Joyce Lay on November 29, 2019, revealed that she wants to push for an amendment to have President Uhuru Kenyatta run for another term.
In her defense, Kenya is more safer with him than anyone else stating that he means well but people are bitter ending up speaking negatively about the President.
“If we want to see change then we have to put our bitterness away and take the opportunity while we have him in office. Let us tell them to keep the #BBI report we can hold like 3 months and let us demand for the full implementation of the constitution.
Let us put our house in order before we decide wether we need to make some changes. We still need to speak and definitely our voices will be more than the 7000 people?..who contributed to #BBI Create the platforms in every village and collect views direct from the people.
Let not our President lose touch with the people. He has to deliver all his promises before he pushes for BBI His advisor should tell him that. It is heartless to go back to people who can’t pay for their medical that by implementing the #BBI report things will be better for them,” Lay stated.
Karua has since criticized the move illustrating that term limit is a deliberate measure to enable a country sample its diversity in leadership and talents.
