Martha Karua who was the Azimio la Umoja’s running mate in the 2022 polls has said that President William Ruto should have apologised to lawyer Miguna Miguna in his Mashujaa Day speech.
Karua says that for ten years,Ruto served as the Deputy President during the Jubilee’s administration when Miguna Miguna was inhumanly kicked out of the country.
In an exclusive interview with BBC, Karua said that Ruto should have given his own apology as well as on behalf of the former President, Uhuru Kenyatta.
“What happened to Miguna was a mistake and a great atrocity by the Jubilee government, in which the current President was a Deputy President. It is an action he cannot dissociate himself with.In fact, I think maybe today [Mashujaa Day] when making his speech, I would expect that he apologise to Miguna on his own behalf and on behalf of the president who has just retired. It is their government that committed that atrocity,” she said.
She also confirmed that if Azimio had won the elections, they would still allow the ousted Kenyan lawyer back to the country saying that it was the lawyer’s right.
