ANC leader Musalia Mudavadi and Deputy President William Ruto have protested against the use of public institutions to settle political scores.
The new political couple said that President Uhuru Kenyatta should not arrest, detain and charge people who oppose institutionalised corruption.
Musalia and Ruto warned that the country was experiencing poor governance because of state capture.
“We must resist the criminalisation of dissenting or alternative views. The criminal justice system cannot be weaponised to drive political narratives,” Ruto said.
Musalia was addressing the ANC National Delegates Conference at Bomas of Kenya on Sunday. The ANC conference endorsed Musalia Mudavadi for the country’s top seat.

“There is sinister counter-democracy insurgency creeping into our governance system.
Anti-people plots are afoot to curtail and defeat not only rights and freedoms, but also electoral democracy,” Musalia said.
“These shenanigans are aimed at subverting free, fair and verifiable elections by crippling political parties. There are shameful manoeuvres to assault and curtail Kenyans’ political rights to associate and freely choose their leaders,” Musalia said.
“Some shadowy elements are busy attempting to coerce, intimidate and impose handpicked leaders. This is a perilous road that can only lead to civil strife. The stability of this country is derived from the legitimacy bestowed through popular elections.”
