Lawyer professor Makau Mutua has asked Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) leader Raila Odinga to terminate his political marriage with President Uhuru Kenyatta.
The law scholar has opined that the former Prime Minister should end his handshake with the Head of State ahead of 2022 General Election.
In his statement on Friday, June 4, 2021, the Political Analyst argued that political divorce was necessary between President Uhuru and Raila to enable the president reunite with his deputy, William Ruto.
“ODM’s @RailaOdinga should return Mr Kenyatta to DP @WilliamsRuto. A divorce is necessary between Mr Odinga and Mr Kenyatta to allow a political remarriage of Mr Ruto and Mr Kenyatta. The duo belongs together. This is the only calculus that will clarify the 2022 contest. Let’s go!” Mutua said.
Professor Mutua who has been a close ally of the ODM leader stated that it was time the duo parted ways due to what he termed as President Uhuru’s illegal and unconstitutional conduct.
“ODM’s @RailaOdinga must exit the handshake with Mr Kenyatta. He cannot continue to abide by Mr Kenyatta’s illegal and unconstitutional conduct. Enough is Enough!” Mutua stated.
His remarks came barely hours after leaders from across the political divide on Thursday, June 3, 2021 put aside their political differences to condemn the Head of State’s selective appointment of the Judges.
In a gazette notice, the President appointed 34 new Judges and rejected six others after they were recommended by the Judicial Service Commission (JSC).
Uhuru’s alleged disobedience of court orders has put his handshake relationship with Raila on the spotlight considering Raila is famed for his fight for democracy and the rule of law.
