Diatribe against Uhuru and Ruto is a conspiracy to stop them running

I am disturbed by arguments that if one of them is elected President while still facing charges at the ICC, it will bring dishonour to the office of the President.
To state that mere confirmation of the trumped-up charges against Mr Kenyatta, based on wild allegations raised by the same architects of the case at the ICC disqualifies him from running for President is malicious to the extreme.
The human rights activists of yesteryear cherished the mantra “let the people decide”! What has changed in the case of Mr Kiai and Mr Githongo? Are they saying Kenyans are so unenlightened that they can’t decide for themselves who to elect?
If Kenyans truly believe that Uhuru committed “grave” crimes against humanity, they should be given an opportunity to categorically say so at the ballot.
