City lawyer Danstan Omari has today warned President William Ruto and his Kenya Kwanza lieutenants to keep off following and hunting former president Uhuru Kenyatta.
While speaking to NTV Kenya on 1st January Wednesday, 2023, the city lawyer claimed President Ruto and his Kenya Kwanza administration should stop fighting former President Uhuru Kenyatta since fighting him is like sleeping on a volcano that will erupt soon. He claimed the volcano would affect the Kenya Kwanza government more than it would affect the former president.
“When you deal with a former president, we have had three. One died in office, Jomo Kenyatta, and we had Daniel Moi leaving office. Mwai Kibaki retired without going after his predecessor. Uhuru Kenyatta took over from Kibaki and said he would not interfere with his life,” Omari explained.
Omari further claimed that it is regrettable that the Kenya Kwanza regime is determined to drag the former President to courts and wondered how this witch hunt would help the current administration. He further claimed that Uhuru and Raila are globally recognized leaders while those attacking them are village dogs.
“Uhuru has a lot of impacts globally. We are looking at two serious international figures, Uhuru combined with Raila Odinga. Globally, these two control 80% of the networks. William Ruto is a local president, and the members of his inner circle, like Kimani Ichung’wah, are only known up to the Kikuyu constituency,” Omari said amid laughter from the panelist.
Omari urged President Ruto to avoid dragging the former president and concentrate on improving the country’s economy.
His sentiments come a few days after the Kenya Kwanza government claimed that the family of former President Uhuru Kenyatta has been easing paying taxes running up to billions of shillings.
President William Ruto, led by Nyandarua Senator John Methu and other UDA party leaders, recently claimed that the ongoing political rallies by Raila Odinga are sponsored by former President Uhuru Kenyatta.
