Garissa Town Member of Parliament Aden Duale has asked President Uhuru Kenyatta to stop setting conditions for Kenyans on who they should elect.

Duale said Kenya's constitution gives rights to anyone to vie for presidential seat.

"The Constitution is very clear on who should vie for presidency," Duale said.

He cited 2013 when majority of voters in the country elected the President and his deputy Willian Ruto when they were facing charges against humanity in the ICC.

"We are reminding them that they should not tell us who to vote for," he added.

Duale's remarks come barely one week after President told Mt Kenya residents to not vote for "thieves " in the coming general elections.

Speaking in his native Kikuyu language in Ruiru, the President said voters should vote in a leader who would safeguard and build on his and Kibaki's legacy.
