Rift Valley - The Likia and Beyond Peace and Conflict Reconciliation Council has rubbished claims that there might be mild tension in the Rift Valley region.
This comes after an article published in one of the local newspapers on May 28 that there was rising tribal unease in the region.
The council’s coordinator Bishop Isaac Ngugi says the article was misleading as Kenyans residing in the region were living harmoniously.
The article had suggested that perception of unfair treatment of civil servants from one community was fuelling suspicion and hurting “fragile peace” in the Rift valley.
He spoke against those trying to destabilize Uhuru-Ruto government with the planned mass action and impeachments and asked them to avoid putting the country in a perpetual chaotic mode.
“Leaders should always find a better platform to deal with National problems in a sensible way other than causing unrest amongst their people without offering alternative solutions,” he said.
He noted that the formation of the Jubilee government under Uhuru and Ruto would not just be a marriage of convenience, but would address the deep-seated structural problems.
He also urged the Nakuru County senator; James Mungai to avoid joins hands with the Governor, Kinuthia Mbugua and work together instead of been critical.
