Nairobi - President Uhuru Kenyatta has told opposition leaders to either shut up or support the government.
Speaking in Nairobi after his arrival from the Hague Thursday, the president said that time for political games was over and that he and his government will strive to develop the country.
He also called on unity in government, saying that detractors would not be allowed to ruin what the government has already built and is looking forward to doing.
" Those that want to talk can talk. We are developing the country. I ask them to either join us or keep quiet," he said of the opposition.
He also called on Kenyans to shun tribalism and tribal affiliations, saying they are of no help to the nation.

" We are all one. There is no Kikuyu, there is no Luo and there is no Kalenjin. We are one people. Let us build the nation," he added.
The president insists that the Jubilee government is fully in power and will deliver its promises to Kenyans.
" We will deliver all we promised before elections. That will not change at all. We have a mission and vision to build the country," he added.
The opposition has for long pressured the government into making changes in its governance structure, including calling for a referendum to change certain aspects of the constitution.
