Kandara MP Alice Wahome has blasted President Uhuru Kenyatta for what she termed as mismanagement of the country.

In a presser, Ms Wahome said that Uhuru inherited a rich democracy from retired President Mwai Kibaki, but under his tutelage, Kenya has seen deterioration over the same.

The biggest existential threat to Kenya’s declining economy, democracy and freedom of speech is President Uhuru Kenyatta,” she said.

She accused President Kenyatta and former Premiere Raila Odinga of using the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) report to disregard the Constitution and cling to power in 2022.

Using BBI to cling to power

Ms Wahome claimed there is a plot to make President Kenyatta the Prime Minister and ODM party leader President through the BBI in the 2022 General Election.

The MP, allied to DP William Ruto's Tangatanga faction, questioned why the president has not responded to statements by the former Jubilee Party Vice Chairman David Murathe, COTU Secretary General Francis Atwoli and nominated Senator Beth Mugo.

"Raila Odinga is his new political mercenary for hire, and the BBI itself, the BBI report is the special purpose vehicle heading to the route that has been suggested by Murathe, Atwoli and Beth Mugo," she said.

"Even though the persons saying may be expressing their opinions and views I think His Excellency, who we respect a lot, Uhuru Muigai Kenyatta, should actually respond to some of those issues," she continued.
