22 October 2015, 13:03
Narok - The Law Society of Kenya (LSK) Narok Chapter has called on Jubilee leaders to immediately stop the ongoing prayer rallies for DP William Ruto and former radio journalist Joshua arap Sang.
Narok LSK Chairman, Charles Sena warned that the prayer rallies have raised political temperatures in the country.
Speaking to the News24, Sena said those who fixed Deputy President William Ruto and radio journalist Joshua Sang should go and make their confessions at the court and not in prayer rallies.
“We are calling on those who have been moving around the country purporting to be praying for the Deputy President to halt these rallies because they are not good for the unity of the country,” said Sena.
He said the rallies have been turned into forums for discussing the 2017 politics.

“We are shocked by the leaders who came to Suswa and swore that they will not heed to Judge Chile Eboe-Osuji's warning that they should stop commenting on these cases. This amount to sub-judice,” said Sena.
The chairman said utterances by certain leaders are likely to divide the country along tribal lines and called on the police to investigate some of the utterances.
“We shall launch an official complaint with the Director of Public prosecution and the police over remarks that have been made during these rallies. The police should summon those who have made inflammatory remarks to record statements,” said Sena.
Sena said the healing process that had been started after the post-election skirmishes of 2007/08 will be hampered by the recklessness of the politicians.
Last Sunday, defiant Jubilee leaders displayed open contempt for the ICC with a public declaration telling The Hague judges that they cannot be gagged from discussing the Kenyan cases against Deputy President William Ruto.
The leaders vowed to resist ‘any form of dictatorship from any quarters, including the ICC.'
