Miguna Miguna has called out Uhuru Kenyatta’s call for the constitutional amendment.
In his Madaraka day speech, President Kenyatta called for amending the Constitution if certain elements ‘outlive their historical purposes.’
‘Outlived historical purposes’
“If certain elements of the constitution outlive their historical purpose, they become cancer, they must be removed, or they will infect the good elements of the mother law,” Kenyatta said in his speech, quoting Tom Mboya.
Uhuru said that that was the reasoning behind the removal of section 2A in 1992 to allow multipartyism.
Constitution implementation the problem – Miguna
However, Miguna Miguna, whom the Uhuru administration has deported illegally, came out against the president’s assertions.
“To Despot Uhuru Kenyatta: Kenya’s problems were not caused by the Constitution. Kenyans want the existing Constitution implemented, not changed. We want credible and democratic elections, not stolen ones. They want leaders to build homes; not destroy homes and evict Kenyans.” the self-proclaimed NRM general tweeted.
Furthermore, Miguna went on to state that the only reason why Uhuru Kenyatta was speaking of amending the Constitution was to ‘cling to power.’
Abuse of power, disobeying court orders
Miguna Miguna said that Uhuru Kenyatta represents everything retrogressive in the series of tweets because ‘you abuse power, subvert the constitution and disobey court orders.’
The Jubilee administration indeed has been flagrantly disregarding court orders like a tyrannical regime. During his deportation, courts barred the administration from deporting Miguna Miguna. However, the government went ahead to do it anyway.
They also frustrated his efforts to return into the country, which was against court orders that stated that he could get into the country without a passport (The Jubilee administration had perforated his passport).
Uhuru has overseen one of the worst regimes in Kenya’s history, with morale among Kenyans of the government deficient. Even those who voted for the current administration are finding it hard to justify why they voted it in.
