Wednesday February 13, 2019 - Former Vice President, Kalonzo Musyoka, has said President Uhuru Kenyatta is the best President that Kenya has ever had.
In an interview with Citizen TV presenter, Hussein Mohamed, on Tuesday evening, Kalonzo said that he can even step down for Uhuru to serve beyond his two terms as President.
"Uhuru is the best President and I admire what he is doing and thus he must be supported.”
“If he leads his Jubilee troops to the 2022 contest and his party clinches the majority of seats, then whoever wins as President must appoint him as Prime Minister," Kalonzo said.
However, Kalonzo, who is also the Wiper Democratic Movement party leader, dismissed claims that he is advocating for an extension of presidential term limits.
He said his willingness to support Uhuru does not imply that he is trying to be his errand boy as has been widely reported.
"I am a very outstanding constitutional lawyer who does not advocate for an extension of the presidential term and this goes down to Governors.”
“In my opinion, I am looking at a 2022 post-election in a situation where we need to maintain a Government of national unity.”
“You cannot just write away Uhuru," he said.
The Wiper boss also said that there is need to give Uhuru a role in Government beyond 2022 but the said role should be crafted within the framework of the national Government.
"Uhuru might want to retire but Kenyans want him to proceed.”
“If he is not interested he can then nominate someone if he so wishes," he noted.
