Former Gichugu MP Martha Karua takes head-on with President Uhuru Kenyatta over DP William Ruto on alleged sideline treatment.

Talking on morning show interview on Citizen TV, Karua stated that the president had to guarantee even advantage and protection of the law for every Kenyan.

"This is a wake-up call. Rise to your duties, adhere to your oath of office...You are the president of Kenya, not of a group, not of friends and you must not let chaos and lawlessness under your watch in the pretence of facilitating one side of the political divide to gain an advantage," Karua stated.

Karua was referring to an order by National Security Advisory Committee which declared that all political meetings would be held in strict compliance to Section 5 of the Public Order Act, cap. 56.

However, all of Deputy President William Ruto's events have so far been cancelled.

However, during the weekend several functions including; ODM leader Raila Odinga's in Bondo, Interior CS Fred Matiang'i in Nyamira and Gideon Moi's in Eastern Mau, went on as planned.

"We can see what is happening in Tanzania where the electoral commission is stopping the campaigns of the opposition to give advantage to the ruling party.

"If this is the playbook that is beginning here, we as Kenyans will resist," Karua declared.

Besides, Karua urged the President to resign for different election, if at all he and his deputy could not work collectively.

"My question to the President is; What precedent are you setting of how a President should treat a deputy or how Governors should treat their deputies? Karua posed.

She advised the President against implementing the rule of law in a skewed way.

"It is not enough to hold National Prayers or ask for forgiveness when they are deliberately causing strife under the guise of building bridges while breaking existing bridges," she stated.
