Nairobi - Leaders across the political divide have been urged to direct their energy elsewhere instead of dwelling on the ICC politics.
Speaking at St. Augustine Muhotetu Catholic Church in Laikipia west sub-County, Laikipia County Assembly Speaker, Patrick Mariru called on leaders to concentrate on meaningful development matters instead of engaging in empty politics.
He noted that some politicians were preaching empty rhetoric while mudslinging each other on the ICC ‘fixing and the fixer’ whereas Kenyans continue to suffer.
He noted that Kenyans are interested in debates aimed at addressing critical issues affecting them among them getting access to clean water, good roads among other services.

‘‘Leaders across the political divide have given politics too much attention whereas Kenyans continue to experience a myriad of challenges. They should concentrate on serious issues facing Wanjiku among them food shortage, insecurity, poor infrastructural developments among others,” noted Mariru.
The Speaker called for sobriety while discussing serious issues affecting the country, and unity among leaders.
Mariru urged Kenyans to continue praying for Deputy President William Ruto and former radio Journalist Joshua Sang's ICC cases.
He said it was evident that the two would be freed, and challenged Kenyans to leave the debate to those involved.
