Raphael Tuju defends security agents over Mombasa chaos
05 September 2012, 12:33
Presidential hopeful and Party of Action (POA) party leader Raphael Tuju has defended security agents against accusations that they failed in quelling the Mombasa chaos that claimed three lives and property of unknown value destroyed saying the youths who perpetrated the chaos and engaged the police in running battles might have been incited or were reacting to some hate speech from undisclosed persons.
Tuju also dismissed allegations that the riots were religious conflicts between Muslims and Christians and said the two religions had many similarities in their faith and beliefs and have co-existed peacefully for a long time.
Speaking in Nakuru on Sunday morning during a Family Day for Catholic faithful held at Christ the King Church, Tuju told those criticizing the security agents to stop being fault finders and be part of the solution by working closely with the government to ensure security for all was guaranteed.
He hit out at politicians who he claimed were fond of dividing Kenyans on the basis of their tribes for selfish gains and said there was no super-tribe in the country and that all Kenyans were equal irrespective of their ethnic background.
Cardinal John Njue hit out at a donor organization which he said to have given the country contraceptives funds and said this might destroy families instead of restoring the institution especially among the youthful generation.
