Nakuru - Two Nakuru lobby groups have said the National Assembly must stop its planned debate of the Waki report on the 2007/2008 post-election violence.
The residents said revisiting it would reopen old wounds.
“William Ruto and Uhuru Kenyatta reconciled in the last election,” said Joseph Njuguna.
Counties Efficiency in Development lobby group coordinator, James Mugo said debating the Waki report would not help the ICC cases.

He condemned the move by Jubilee MPs to form a parliamentary team to look into the report.
“The formation of the 15-member committee to discuss the report is untimely and unnecessary. It will only serve to open old wounds,” said the lobbyist.
Nicholas Kamau, a director of the Stiff-Will Initiative Alliance, on his part threatened to move to court to challenge the move.
“I have instructed my lawyers to move to court and stop the planned debate,” said Kamau.
