Wetangula: Uhuru should quit politics, Raila must retire

National Assembly Speaker Moses Wetangula has asked the Inspector general of Police (IG) Japhet Koome to investigate the incursion into Northland’s city linked to the Kenyatta family.

He condemned the acts saying every Kenyan deserves to have their property protected by the State.

“Nobody can condone such acts. We urge the IG to investigate the acts thoroughly. They must ensure that everyone is protected together with their property regardless of their political affiliation,” said the former Bungoma senator at a burial in Uasin Gishu on Tuesday.

At the same time, Mr Wetangula urged the former Head of State to emulate his predecessors who retired and not meddle in politics.

“We have seen our former president saying things that don’t unite the country. We had strong leaders like former president Daniel Moi who retired and did not interfere with the running of the country. We challenge Mr Kenyatta not to interfere with the running of the country’s affairs but emulate them,” he said.

Mr Wetangula also asked the opposition chief Mr Raila Odinga to give time to the current president to rule.

“When two men court a woman and she settles and marries don’t go hire goons, and disturb him at night, let him continue with his business…I want to tell Mr Odinga to accept the defeat and retire honourably,” said Mr Wetangula.

The Azimio team led by Mr Odinga, Narc Kenya’s Martha Karua and Wiper’s Kalonzo Musyoka have intensified demonstrations to compel the Kenya Kwanza administration to reduce the high cost of living and address electoral injustice.

Mr Wetangula also defended Kenya Kwanza from accusations of the high cost of living, saying the current regime was not to blame.

“Let us give time to president William Ruto to work because he has not forwarded his first budget. His first budget will be read in June,” said Mr Wetangula.
