Marende: Govt should work on uniting Kenyans

08 October 2013, 17:59 Samuel Kisika

Nairobi - Kenneth Marende, the former National Assembly Speaker, has called on Jubilee government to consider uniting Kenyans as a top-most agenda in their governance.

Speaking on a local radio, Marende said the nation has a total of 42 tribes and the government should not turn a blind eye on bringing together these tribes especially with regard to resource allocation.

"The government is really doing well in its operations but there is a laxity in uniting the diverse tribes, looking at how public appointments are being conducted," said Marende.

"The Constitution states clearly that there should be equality in resource allocation to all tribes regardless of political affiliation and differences yet the government seems not to adhere to this provision," he added.

Marende also noted that they are conducting intensive sensitisation forums in Western region on the benefit of political unity during elections.

"Western votes are not far away in number when compared to the Central ones but the only difference is that Luhya community don't value election like there counterparts hence working to change this perspective," noted Marende.

He urged Kenyans to maintain peace by reporting anyone suspected to commit any form of crime to respective security organs.

He further warned citizens against divisions along tribal and religious lines.
