Uhuru to CORD: Stop insulting the president

09 June 2014, 18:53 William Korir

Nairobi - President Uhuru Kenyatta has told off the CORD coalition by telling them to stop insulting the legitimately elected president of Kenya.

In a statement released by the Presidential Press Service PSCU, the head of state whilst on a visit to Kisii and Nyamira Monday asked the opposition to stop insulting him and his office as it would not change the fact he is president.

He once again added that he would be open to dialogue to deal with issues of national importance but would only prescribe to them on the grounds that there is respect between the two sides.

He added that being 2014, it was not important to speak about politics with the elections set to take place in far off 2017.

"Stop insulting the president. Be patient for the next four years and allow me do my work for which  I was elected by the Kenyan people” he said.

He was speaking during drive by stops along Kisii and Nyamira Counties.

" Campaigns have their time and they ended with the last elections. There is no need of keeping Kenyans on a campaign mood for five years”, he said at Nyansiongo County Council grounds, Borabu constituency, Nyamira county.

He said that he respects the opposition and its role in ensuring the government is checked but insisted that nothing would be achieved through insults and disrespect.

“The opposition is good. But the opposition does not mean insults. It means giving checks and balances  on the performance of the government”, he added.

He also insisted that he would welcome talks with stakeholders but only if they are constructive.

" Those with any issues should raise them with me and they will be listened to, he finished.

The president has used a reconciliatory tone in recent weeks despite an unending barage from the opposition ranks. He has insisted that the government will not entertain talk of political mood at this stage of his government's life.
