Nakuru - A member of parliament has accused the government of plotting to economically cripple its critics and key opposition figures ahead of next year's polls.
Kuresoi south MP, Zakayo Cheruiyot said the government is using underhand tactics to target its vocal critics.
Speaking Sunday in Kuresoi town, Cheruiyot said that the closure of Governor Joho's warehouses is a clear indication that the government is employing tactics used by retired president Moi to punish those opposed to it.
"The government is taking us back to the dark days and their aim is to economically sabotage key people in the opposition by targeting their businesses and closing them down with fake excuses of tax evasion," said Cheruiyot.
He slammed President Kenyatta for using government agencies to harass people opposed to his government or those criticising him.
"They have started arresting and harassing bloggers and journalists who criticize them and this is dangerous for the country and Kenyans must stand against this," he said.
He reminded UhuRuto that they will not rule forever.
