JUSTICE and Constitutional Affairs minister Mutula Kilonzo has renewed his calls for Uhuru Kenyatta to resign as Deputy Prime Minister. Mutula cited last Friday’s resignation of UK Energy and Climate minister Chris Huhne after he was charged with perverting the course of justice by asking his ex-wife to take responsibility for a 2003 speeding offense. Huhne’s case has not yet come to court.
Mutula also sighted the latest Ipsos-Synovate opinion poll conducted last week which indicated that 62 per cent of Kenyans want Uhuru to quit as DPM. “Time is running out for Uhuru to quit,” Mutula said yesterday. Uhuru resigned as Finance minister last month along with Civil Service boss Francis Muthaura who is also facing charges of crimes against humanity at the ICC. However, Uhuru did not resign as the deputy Prime Minister.
