Addressing the media in Murang’a on Sunday, January 2, the legislator said the recent abductions and torture of leaders opposed to President Uhuru Kenyatta’s style of leadership, and the selection of a few political parties to gang against certain presidential candidates is a clear indication that Uhuru wants to retain executive powers.
“The president could be applying tactics or strategists to retain power … It is very obvious that government institutions have been used throughout this particular term by the state (Deep State) which is a criminal enterprise,” Wahome said.
Wahome who has been a fierce critic of the President however asked Uhuru to retire peacefully after serving his second and last constitutional limit.
While warning the first in command against manipulating the succession and transition of power, Wahome said the country has got no room for manipulative and authoritative political power games as it is a democratic nation.
“The President should accept that his term has come to an end and he should leave in honor and let the country be rebuilt,” she said.
Her remarks come barely a month after the vocal Tanga Tanga legislator threatened to sue President Uhuru Kenyatta for what she termed as militarizing government institutions.
The MP said that she will be among those who will protect the Kenyan Constitution by moving to court to overturn some of President Uhuru Kenyatta’s decisions including the recent placement of the Kenya Medical Supply Authority (KEMSA) under the Kenya Defense Forces.
“I am one person who believes that law must be followed, and I will be coming to court next week to oppose this move,” she said.
