This is the making of a dictatorship- Karua questions the president’s recent directives.
Azimio la umoja, deputy principal, Martha Karua, has hinted at a dictator government which does not consider democracy.
Speaking at human rights forum organised by Uganda’s opposition leaders in Nairobi,Martha Karua questioned on why, the DPP took the sudden act of withdrawing multiple graft cases, against bigwigs.
She said,”We have seen in recent months’ cases being withdrawn, of fraud and others where the suspects are the people in power.”
“We have seen land-grabbing cases and affidavits being sworn saying there was no land-grabbing. How comes all these cases are the people in power, not the ordinary people? she posed.
“Something is cooking in Kenya, and this is the making of a dictatorship,” she added.
Karua further added that Kenyans and East Africa as a whole, should rise up and woe this actions, she stated that silence is fueling dictatorship
She said,”It is your silence that is helping dictatorship to thrive in East Africa and in our country, and if continue this way, we are going to be submerged by violation of human rights.”
Karua, further stated that the opposition will not sit and watch dictatorship.
She said,” I am here to say that we should not give any room or chance to people who do not have regard for democracy and human rights.”
Dropping of graft charges against people in power, has not sat right with the opposition. Last week, Azimio la Umoja leader, Raila Odinga questionef on why the DPP took that step.
He posed,”How do you justify dropping criminal charges against Mithika Linturi (Agriculture CS), Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua, and Aisha Jumwa (Public Service CS) while imprisoning Sirisia MP, John Waluke?”
