Controversial political analyst Mutahi Ngunyi has warned President Uhuru Kenyatta that he will bear the blame if the country snaps, in light of the polarised political climate in the country.

In an open letter to the president on his political YouTube channel, The Fifth Estate, Ngunyi also poked holes into the full judgement of the Supreme Court on the presidential election petition that was delivered on Wednesday, terming it as “a total waste of our national imagination.”

In what appears to imply that he believes President Kenyatta won the annulled August 8 election, Mr Ngunyi in the same breathe dismisses Nasa presidential candidate Raila Odinga as a “jobless man”.

CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE

“If the country snaps, we will not forgive you sir. The sovereign will of the people is in your custody. You must establish homogeny,” Ngunyi says in the letter.

Ngunyi, who has openly come out a Jubilee Party leaning political analyst, also details an alleged plot for a “civilian coup” to oust President Kenyatta while also offering possible solutions to it.

“The solution is to disobey the rule of bad law, in my view. No progress in the world has happened without disobeying the rule of bad law. This is called civil disobedience,” he says.

If Maraga rulings degenerate into the rule of bad law, Uhuru Kenyatta must break them, unapologetically. And he must break them in the name of the sovereign will of the people,” he concludes.
