Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka has defended retired President Uhuru Kenyatta affirming that the constitution gives him the latitude to practise politics.
The Wiper party leader said it would be unconstitutional if any legislation attempts to infringe on the political rights of any citizen. Kalonzo blasted Ruto's battalion for hurling retirement remarks to the former head of state. He said that such a provocation violates the 2010 constitution.
''I want to say that in Article 38 of the Constitution, there are certain inalienable rights and one of them is the right for self-determination,'' Kalonzo said at the Jubilee National Delegates Convention at Ngong Racecourse on Monday.
The former Vice President further said Kenya is a signatory to the African Charter that champions the protection of people's inalienable rights. He noted that according to the UN charter, it is wrong to deny a citizen the right to exercise his political will. He added that Uhuru is too young to quit active politics, lashing out at leaders conveying such sentiments.
''To say that Uhuru should retire and I am older than him what are you telling me..there are things which are not even negotiable that is why we have come here,'' he said.
During the NDC, Uhuru affirmed that his party is on course to deliver the Building Bridges Initiative to Kenyans. He added that the BBI was crafted with the interest of Kenyans in mind.
Uhuru has a right to engage in politics if he wants to but cannot compel wananchi to accept the BBI.
Uhuru Kenyatta should be free to participate in politics.
He should not listen to
People who sand praise & worship with Shakahola murderers.
He has money but lack political power. If you don't know what to do after retirement then never join politics. Stay retarded jinga sana
Ndugu Kalonzo Musyoka:
Hayati rais wa Jamhuri ya Muungano wa Tanzania Ndugu Borito Kambarage Nyerere alisema ya kwamba, wazee wang'atuke. Neno kung'atuka linatokana na lugha yake ya KiZanaki. Maana yake ni kuwa, wazee (sio kwa umri) wawaachie wengine waendelee kufanya kazi na kuja na mbinu mpya za kutekeleza miradi ya nchi.
Kenya need two sets of laws, one set for UK and RAO, and another set for everybody else. BTW, there is no right to ruin small scale businesses, like the ones in Kibera, Kamukunji, and other open air markets. KM can have his demonstrations in Mwingi, Martha in Kirinyaga, UK in Gatundu, Kioni in Laikipia, and RAO in Karen.
