Emurua Dikirr MP Johana Ng’eno has once again tore into President Uhuru Kenyatta and his advisors, claiming they are not sober.
Ng’eno sparked controversy in September when he called out the President for undermining and disrespecting Deputy President William Ruto and asked him to resign if he was tired of working with his deputy.
Speaking during a public forum in his constituency on Tuesday, December 21, the outspoken lawmaker asked Uhuru to drop advisors such Central Organisation of Trade Unions (COTU) boss Francis Atwoli, KANU leader Gideon Moi and Jubilee Party Vice Chairman David Murathe, claiming they were not sober.
He asked Uhuru to instead listen to God-fearing leaders to help him make the right decisions.
“Do not allow drunkards to drive the agenda of this country, this country will fall, leave this country to the people of God like Deputy President William Ruto” he said.
He claimed since his handlers were not sober people, they advised the president to close schools, churches and market centres and re-open bars.
Ng’eno questioned the president’s decision to focus on the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) report and referendum politics at the time the country was sinking into financial crisis due to a shrinking economy.
He said people were tired of the BBI politics and are wondering why the government had blatantly gotten its priorities upside down.
“The constitution change is not urgent, no one has been hospitalized and or died because he is suffering from a constitution disease,” he added.
The MP cast aspersions upon the process of collecting the signatures, claiming some were forged while others were appended through coercion and intimidation
“What are you verifying, allocating millions to verify signatures collected from morgues. People were arrested for defying curfew rules and asked to sign the forms in exchange of their freedom,” he added.
