Narc Kenya party leader Martha Karua continued her attack on President Uhuru Kenyatta days after telling him that prayers and seeking forgiveness won’t help the country.
Mrs. Karua accused the President of undermining the Constitution by gagging his rival and asked Kenyans to rise against his authoritarian leadership.
“We all have an obligation to resist and reject this emerging situation and to demand full unequivocal and immediate restoration of the constitutional order,” she said.
Speaking at the party headquarter on Thursday, the former Constitutional Affairs minister noted that there was a deliberate effort to suppress activities not “favorable” to President Kenyatta and his handshake partner Raila Odinga.
According to Karua, there is an emerging trend of a state-sponsored strategy to undermine the Constitution, the rule of law, and the constitutional order.
Karua seemed to defend Deputy President William Ruto who is a few occasions had roadblock erected to stop his countrywide tours.
The Narc Kenya said it is against the Constitution for the law to be applied in a skewed or partisan manner.
“The President and those acting in his name have no authority to deny the Deputy President or any other constitutional office holder the right to exercise their mandate or purport to sanction him using unlawful means,” she said.
Karua further stated that State organs must be mindful of their directives lest they be in the violation of the Constitution.
“The recent advisory by the NSAC and adoption of the same by the Cabinet, which is unconstitutional because it does not meet the two-thirds gender rule, is a violation of the Constitution,” she said.
“It is now time to stand up, speak up and reject these well-documented attempts by President Kenyatta and a section of the government to overthrow the 2010 Constitution.”
Karua also noted that her party was concerned by the utterance and directives made by political leaders.
“This is a clear manifestation of power being exercised outside constitutional offices by unelected and unaccountable persons.”

She asked the police to be conscious of their role and exercise their power in a manner that is consistent with the Constitution irrespective of the directive issued to them by the executive.
Speaking at the same event, Ukweli Party leader Boniface Mwangi regretted that the President seems not to believe in the Constitution he swore to protect.
“He disregards and disobeys the Constitution every other time. The problem in Kenya is not the law but leaders who do not want to respect the Constitution,” he said.
