It’s appalling the depths the former president has fallen to the extent he rudely castigates police officers on official duty protecting life and property.
It is despicable to see a former president who after having served two full terms reduce his stature by fighting over a shell of a party that presided over misrule, wanton looting of public coffers and extrajudicial killings during the infamous rogue handshake regime.
The former president should respect his standing in society and emulate the former presidents by keeping off active politics and sullying his name by engaging in petty politics.
As it is now Jubilee as we know it is a pale shadow of its former self.
The once behemoth of party with near super majority of 174 lawmakers is now having a paltry number who have since shifted their allegiance.
Uhuru should cease muddying his image by trying to resuscitate a dead party and leave the tussle to elected MPs.
It’s disconcerting as it is ironic that Uhuru is scoffing at police officers while pretending to be imploring on them to keep peace.
It’s a worst-kept secret that Uhuru and his bitter cabal are sponsors of violent protests to undermine the government of Kenya Kwanza and His Excellency William Ruto.
Uhuru and his opposition leaders should give president Ruto a break from anarchism and rebuild the battered economy crippled under his watch during the handshake regime.
Kenyans are watching and would not allow further economic sabotage and violence perpetrated by selfish leaders out to do self-preservation.
