Exit peacefully, Karua tells President Kenyatta

NARK Kenya Party Leader Martha Karua

NARK Kenya Party leader Martha Karua has told President Uhuru Kenyatta to hand over his position to other successors now that his time is over.

Karua who was speaking during her party’s National Deligates Convention (NDC) at Ufungamano House in Nairobi on Friday,cautioned President Uhuru against clinging onto power.

In her claims,she said that she has been getting information from the Head of State’s close confidants that are talking about how young the president is and he can always get a chance to vie for another position like a Prime Minister.

“Tumeskia watu wakisema na hata Attorney GeneralĀ  amekuwa quoted akisema kwamba hakuna kizuizi la kikatiba, rais kuchukua kazi nyingine kama Prime Minister. Niliwaambia kitambo, hiyo inaweza kuwa ni haramu, term limit ni kwamba wengine waweze kupata nafasi,” said Karua.

Karua added that irrespective of the age that any leader is, he or she should exit when their time is over and any lawyer cannot change what’s in the constitution.

“I want to tell any lawyer who may try to misinterprete the constitution; the term limit means 10 years to steer the nation at the top level, you exit and go do something else. This is irrespective of your age, you could even be 40, term limit ikifika unarudi nyumbani,” Karua stated.

In comparison the leader urged President Uhuru Kenyatta to follow what his predecessors, the late former President Daniel Arap Moi and retired head of state Mwai Kibaki did when their term ended.

Karua also told Kenyans to vote for responsible leaders who have been tried and tested during the upcoming August election.

She further urged the Wafula Chebukati-led Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) to conduct a credible election and ensure freedom and fairness during the exercise.
