The former National Assembly speaker Francis Ole Kaparo on Sunday said Kenya fails to enjoy the fruits of nationalism due to some leaders failure to embrace the virtue instead they divide Kenyans on tribal outfit for their own political gain.
Speaking at Jesus House of Praise at Gitimbine in Meru town Kaparo told faithful that it’s unfortunate that 50 years down the line Kenyans still lacks the fruits of nationalism with many leaders preferring tribalism noting no single tribal party will govern this nation.
“I urge both the leaders and citizens to start planting the seeds of nationalism to enhance national cohesion to the current and future generations to co-exist peacefully, it’s through our own stupidity that we are killing each,” said Kaparo.
He noted that no single political party which has been formed on tribal basis will ever ascend to power in Kenya asking faithful to shun from electing leaders who preach tribal division.
The United Republican Party chairman said it will be almost impossible for any politician who does not love and have the interest of all Kenyans at heart to be elected in the forth coming general election urging voters to give priority to visionary leaders who have a good track record of performance.
Kaparo called on all politicians and especially those contesting for the statehouse seat to shun from using hate speech when soliciting for votes because the trend could easily plunge the country into turmoil.
“.I can assure you that nobody can change God’s plans on who will be the next president of Kenya regardless of the many barriers erected to bring the best candidate down if God say yes nobody can say no,” he said.
He also called on leaders to desist from seeking popularity by engaging in empty promises just to cheat Kenyan due to greedy for power noting such people are doomed to fail since Kenyans have already opened their eyes.
Kaparo urged the church and other stakeholders to support URP campaign on opposing homosexuality and marriages of people from the same sex adding the practice is against God’s will, family values, religion, tradition and African culture.
