Martha Karua takes on President Uhuru over BBI with scathing remarks [Video]

Narc Kenya Party leader Martha Karua has hit out at President Uhuru Kenyatta and the Building Bridges Initiative team condemning their action and intention of amending the 2010 constitution through the bill.

Speaking at a press conference earlier today in the company of Linda Katiba initiative, Karua said that the BBI was meant to overthrow the 2010 constitution.

The former Gichugu legislator also alluded that President Kenyatta was inclined to stick to power after the elapse of his tenure in 2022.

“We know constitutions exist to limit the power a president or anybody in authority may exercise.

This (BBI) is a coup and you will realize in the present time, military coups are not fashionable. So coups of overthrowing the constitution appear to be the in thing,” Karua lamented.

The former Constitutional affairs minister also alleged that the document was not inclined to amend the constitution but rather to overhaul it, since out of the 18 chapters in the constitution, 14 were being amended.

Citing bribery, threats, and intimidation to the Members of the County Assembly, Martha continued that President Kenyatta had laid bare his intentions.   

We have seen MCAs getting bribed, being intimidated and we have seen the Baringo MCAs, the ones who voted no, going under investigations writing statements with the Directorate of Criminal Investigations,” she stated.

Martha also noted that through the parliament, the ruling outfit had passed a number of unconstitutional laws that had finally been axed through the courts.

She also reiterated that the forthcoming 2022 polls would not be free and fair if the Country continues in the same trajectory.

“If we stand silent and do nothing, we will not have elections as we know them in 2022. The President will succeed himself or the administration succeed itself. The ‘big boys’ from the 5 major tribes in Kenya will ‘eat’ on behalf of their tribes,” she stated.

  1. Does your blog have a contact page? I’m having trouble locating it but, I’d like to send you
    an email. I’ve got some suggestions for your blog you might be interested in hearing.
    Either way, great blog and I look forward
    to seeing it grow over time.

  2. An impressive share! I’ve just forwarded this onto a co-worker who had been conducting a
    little homework on this. And he actually ordered me dinner because I stumbled upon it for him…
    lol. So let me reword this…. Thanks for the meal!!
    But yeah, thanks for spending time to talk about this matter here on your site.

  3. Western countries’ ambassadors and like-minded envoys told Raila point black: “You’ve been appointed the peoples’ president, but know that you’re all alone.” They reminded him of his political stature as one of the country’s leading politicians, his international reputation, and his input of many years in national and global political arenas. They asked him whether he was willing to see all that credibility washed away because of his recalcitrant stance. “Separately, therefore, Raila Odinga was also having his moments of exorcising his demons and coming to terms with the political realities of the day,” observed the aide. Although the same Western envoys did not rebuke President Uhuru, they nonetheless asked him to map out ways of accommodating and working with Raila. “It was a veiled threat because they let him know that if he failed to do so, they would institute economic sanctions on his regime and make his life as a president keen on a legacy difficult,” confided a foreign diplomat friend who works for the European Union (EU).

  4. My coder is trying to persuade me to move to .net
    from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the costs.
    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type
    on several websites for about a year and am
    anxious about switching to another platform.
    I have heard very good things about blogengine.net. Is there a way
    I can transfer all my wordpress posts into it?

    Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated!

    some time and actual effort to produce a great article… but what can I say…
    I put things off a whole lot and don’t seem to get

  9. Definitely believe that which you said. Your favorite reason appeared to be on the web the
    simplest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I definitely get
    annoyed while people consider worries that they just do not

    the whole thing without having side-effects , people could take
    a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thanks 0mniartist asmr

    suggestions? Bless you! 0mniartist asmr
