Kenya has gone out of control by disrespecting President Uhuru Kenyatta, Narc Kenya leader Martha Karua has said.
Speaking to Citizen TV on Wednesday, Karua said Kenya lacked political maturity and must be streamlined.
“You hear people cursing and talking in a disrespectful manner to one another, including to the Head of State. We must pay respect to the Presidency,” she said.
“This is not saying that we cannot criticise him but we must differ with respect.”
Karua added that she cannot support Deputy President William Ruto in his bid for the country’s top seat.
She added that some of the challenges facing the DP cannot allow her to do so.
“He has been mentioned in many scandals…Those are my personal views and there are many issues and some of them surround involve Chapter 6 of the constitution,” she said.
Her comments come after a revolt burst into the open on Tuesday after leaders from Central region condemned the President for referring to some of them as washenzi, loosely translated as fools.
Although Uhuru and his deputy have not been in direct public confrontation, words have slipped out, making it clear that all is not well between them, especially after Uhuru embraced Opposition leader Raila Odinga after the handshake on March 9, 2018.
