I’m embarrassed by Uhuru, Ruto, Jubilee MP says
16 March 2016, 22:27
Nairobi - Nandi Hills MP Alfred Keter says he is embarrassed by the
move to harass opposition politicians by the government.
Keter, speaking Wednesday in Nairobi states that the move by
Interior CS Joseph Nkaissery to try arrest Joho over his firearm license was
ill advised and summed up the thinking behind the current government.
He accused Nkaissery and in extension President Uhuru
Kenyatta and DP William Ruto of trying to flex muscles they do not have.
“The government has shown it will use its power to
intimidate and maim those of a differing opinion to it,” he said.
“One wonders what the thinking behind the government trying
to hurt opposition leaders will gain. Kenyans have eyes and ears and they can
see what is going on,” he added.
He further accused the government of trying to use power to
force Kenyans into an authoritarian move.
“The above move towards an important elected leader was
dictatorial and unacceptable. Next it will be Keter,” he added.
The top two leaders are yet to comment on the matter.
