Renowned Kenyan activist Boniface Mwangi has hit out at President Uhuru Kenyatta terming him a ‘dangerous tyrant’.
In a tweet on Tuesday, Boniface Mwangi took issue with the President’s failure to appoint 41 judges forwarded to him by the Judicial Service commission in mid-2019.
According to Boniface, by failing to appoint the 41 judges, the president violated the Constitution which is the supreme law of the land.
Regarding the push for constitutional change being spearheaded by the President, Boniface Mwangi noted that the push is meant to weaken the exact laws.
“Names of 41 judges were forwarded to President Kenyatta for appointment in mid-2019. Uhuru has continuously violated the Constitution by refusing to swear-in the judges. His plans are to amend and weaken the constitution. He pretends to be a drunk fool but he is a dangerous tyrant,” he tweeted.
"Uhuru has refused to appoint women in his own cabinet but lies BBI will make it possible for the next government to fulfill the two-thirds gender rule. Please believe someone when they show you their true colours. Let me go play with the free laptops he gave to class one children!" he added.
