Former Minister for Justice Martha Karua has urged President Uhuru Kenyatta against going for the Prime Minister post after his retirement.

Karua said President Kenyatta should retire from politics in a peaceful way and pave the way for others.

Speaking at a women’s conference in Nairobi on Tuesday, Karua opined that the head of state has played his part in the political arena.

She further stated that retirement is the best move he can make when that time comes.

“As a good friend, I am telling the president to not be tempted to preside over an unconstitutional post. Finish your term and let somebody else take the mantle,” Karua said.

She also dismissed claims that she intends to deputize any Presidential candidate before 2022, insisting that she will not enter into such a deal.

Karua urged women from different political divides to unite so that they can take over leadership.

She divulged that women have been sidelined for many years, adding that time has come for them to rise to the occasion so that they can count as well.
