Kenyans should back Mutula Kilonzo stand

Justice Minister Mutula Kilonzo's stand that ICC suspects awaiting ruling by the Pre-Trial Chamber should not vie for presidency if the charges against them are confirmed, sparked protest from supporters of Uhuru and Ruto the Presidential candidates waiting for ICC trial. His Umbrella Party colleagues have also distanced themselves from his stand because their leader Vice President Kalonzo Musyoka purports to support the two suspects.

All this critics are based on narrow minded, pretenders, self-centered and tribalist Kenyans who do not want the rule of law to prevail in this country. Mutula has sacrificed his political position in Ukambani by defying his tribal party to ensure that he follows the law. Speaking to Citizen TV today he said his stand on the ICC ruling has earned him invitation from 20 political parties.

We want to see leaders like Mutula Kilonzo who will stand out against tribal leaders, even if it means falling out with their kinsmen while fighting for change in Kenya. Let’s support the Justice Minister to stop impunity in Kenya.
