20 August 2015, 15:44
Nairobi - Nairobi Senator Mike Mbuvi Sonko has urged Deputy President William Ruto and CORD leader Raila Odinga to stop their public spat and concentrate on development.
The two leaders have been at each others necks for the last three weeks over the controversial Uganda sugar deal, both trading accusations and insults that have bordered on personal.
Sonko though, feels that the two leaders, despite their evident differences must show open respect for each other regardless of their feelings.
" I think that we as leaders need to show respect for public space and concentrate on development and improving the lives of the people," he stated.
" We are leaders and at the moment, the people need us to work and build the nation," he added.
Ruto has been on the tirade against Raila, accusing him of owing the Mumias Sugar Company money.
Raila on the other hand says that Ruto has a hand in plans to import sugar into the country thus kill the local sugar industry.
