Kenya Kwanza warns Uhuru against fronting Odinga as successor
Political leaders allied to Kenya Kwanza Alliance have urged President Uhuru Kenyatta not to taint his reputation by engaging in transition politics with regard to his decision to front ODM Leader Raila Odinga as his successor.
The leaders spoke during a burial ceremony of former Kiambu Governor Ferdinand Waititu’s mother Monica Waititu.
They said President Kenyatta’s decision to openly campaign for opposition leader Odinga exposes him to ridicule and mudslinging that comes with politics.
Ford Kenya Party leader Moses Wetangula said President Kenyatta had belittled his office and the position he holds by taking sides.
“When you say you are in Azimio and that you will campaign for Raila Odinga, you lower your dignity as a President,” said Wetangula
Present were MPs Kindiki Kithure (Tharaka Nithi), Rigathi Gachagua (Mathira), Ndindi Nyoro (Kandara), Charles Kanyi (Starehe), John Wanjiku (Kiamba), Aron Cheruiyot (Kericho), Nasir Sahal (nominated) and former Juja MP Alice Nganga.
