Uhuru wants to be a dictator, claims Mudavadi after impeachment remarks
NASA principal Musalia Mudavadi has sensationally claimed that President Uhuru Kenyatta wants to remove the constitutional two term presidential limits after his impeachment remarks against Raila Odinga.
Through a statement to the press, the Amani National Congress (ANC) party leader called President Kenyatta’s remarks ‘outrageous,’ adding that the Jubilee presidential candidate wants Kenya to resort to dictatorship.
“This is not only a violation of the Oath of Office he took, but also a criminal intent to disrupt the proper working of government when Uhuru losses the elections as he himself has predetermined. Kenyans must decide whether they want a return to the imperial presidency or safeguard their democratic freedoms under Raila,” said Mudavadi.
The NASA National Campaign Committee chairperson is now calling upon Kenyans to impeach President Kenyatta on the ballot for inciting Kenyans against, what he said, would be a duly elected government of opposition candidate, Raila Odinga, after October 17.
Mudavadi argued that President Kenyatta’s remarks should not only worry Kenyans but also Deputy President William Ruto, as removing the two-term presidential limit translates into reneging on promises to support Ruto in 2022 State House race.
On Monday, September 11, during a meeting with a section of Kamba leaders at State House, President Kenyatta said NASA does not have the parliamentary strength to govern effectively even if Raila is to be elected.
In a quick rejoinder, Bungoma Senator Moses Wetangula hit back at President Kenyatta’s claims saying that the ruling coalition does not have the two thirds majority in both Houses as required by the Constitution to impeach a president.
“The process of impeaching a president starts from the National Assembly. If they have two thirds of the vote then it goes to the Senate for a full trial. When that trial is concluded and the House finds the president guilty of the charges then a two thirds majority can seal the impeachment. But in this case what are the charges that President Kenyatta has on Raila?” Wetangula had asked.
