Nairobi - Deputy president William Ruto has cautioned politicians over causing political and tribal divisions with the use of derogatory statements.
The DP was speaking in Western Kenya on Sunday whilst reacting to comments by various politicians over the shooting incident involving Bungoma senator Moses Wetang'ula.
He noted that he had listened to various comments from politicians over the matter, which he felt bordered on causing tribal divisions in the country.
He further asked that politicians and members of the public cease from making conclusions and let the police investigate the matter fully before making comments that might serve to divide Kenyans.
" I urge leaders to be cautious over comments made regarding the matter and let the police do their job and investigate it conclusively, he said.
He added that the government is doing its level best to ensure that all Kenyans are secure and that businesses have a good environment to operate in.
Ruto was speaking in Turbo town on Sunday at a prayer meeting.
In the meantime, Tongaren MP David Eseli, speaking in Chwele called on the government to fully investigate the Wetang'ula shooting incident.
He chastisised some pro- Jubilee coalition statements which insinuated that the incident involving Wetang'ula had more to it than meets the eye.
He urged the government to ensure the safety of political leaders, terming the incident in which Wetangula's vehicle was allegedly shot at as shocking.
