Lob­bies want Pres­i­dent Uhuru to re­sign

The Star (Kenya) - - News General -

Civil groups plan on eject­ing Pres­i­dent Uhuru Keny­atta from power be­fore his term ends — al­legedly for abet­ting graft.

Haki Africa, Team Courage, Coast Net­work and Com­mis­sion for Hu­man Rights and Jus­tice want Uhuru to vol­un­tar­ily step down be­fore a re­volt is launched.

They said there is go­ing to be mass protests from now till the next poll to force Uhuru out of of­fice.

Be­sides that, the lob­bies will push Par­lia­ment to en­sure it im­peaches the Pres­i­dent on grounds that he has failed to tackle cor­rup­tion heists. If the two strate­gies fail, the groups have said they will turn to cit­i­zens to make Uhuru a oneterm Pres­i­dent.

They said the Na­tional In­tel­li­gence Ser­vice is aware of grand scams and is cov­er­ing up.

The ac­tivists ad­dressed the press on Sun­day at the Haki Africa of­fices in Mom­basa town.

“We will en­sure Uhuru leaves of­fice if he fails to re­sign,” Boni­face Mwangi of Team Courage said.
