Borrow a leaf from your predecessors , keep off politics- Wetangula to Uhuru.
National assembly speaker,Moses Wetangula on tuesday, advised the former president, Uhuru Kenyatta to keep off politics.
This he said in regards to the allegations that Uhuru Kenyatta is the sole sponsor of the rallies and demonstrations that have been going on.
Wetangula stated that this is not the kind of legacy, that Uhuru wants to be remembered with. He further advised that he should borrow notes from his predecessors if he is to be remembered at all.
He stated,” I urge former President Uhuru Kenyatta to borrow a leaf from his predecessors late Mzee Moi and Mzee Kibaki who retired in peace after completing their terms of service.”
“My advice to him is to keep off politics since his active engagement in politics will soil his legacy,” he added.
Uhuru’s public appearance, after Magoha’s burial, stated that he is retired but not tired. He acknowledged Raila Odinga as his Party leader and was willing to support him to the core.
He stated,”Retirement doesn’t mean I’m tired. Others retire and increase their political strength.”
“Even though I have retired from politics, I’m still a follower of Raila. If he asks me we go we have to do it. I supported him and I will continue doing so because I believe he is truthful,” he added.
He clarified that he is not interested in any seat in the government but he supports Raila Odinga.
He stated,” I support Raila before the elections and I will still do it now because I believe he is a truthful person and wants to unite Kenyans.”
“It’s my democratic right to support whoever I want and it’s not that I’m after any seat but where Raila will go, I’ll be there,” he added.
