Apologize to KANU, Jubilee leaders tell DP Ruto
09 March 2016, 18:43
Nairobi - Jubilee Coalition leaders have asked DP William Ruto to apologize to KANU leaders to help unify the Kalenjin community.
Ruto is basking in the glory of the Jubilee Coalition's election win in the Kericho Senate by elections Monday where in a close contest, Aaron Cheruiyot came out victorious.
That said, the 109,360 votes Jubilee won were countered by over 50,000 KANU votes, which according to Jubilee leaders need to be rescued ahead of the 2017 General Elections.'
According to Kapseret MP Oscar Sudi who is close to the DP, it is high time he apologized to the opposition in order to mend fences and unite the Kalenjin community.
" The DP must mend fences. It is in his own interest that Kalenjins are united and on the same team because a split community is dangerous," he said.
The feelings were agreed upon by Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen.
" The Kalenjin community is one but there are some who are of a different opinion. We need to get them on board," he added.
The DP, while campaigning for Cheruiyot was caught up in a spat with Baringo Senator and KANU chief Gideon Moi, eventually referring to him as uncircumcised.
The fact that over 50,000 people dissented on him shows there is need for reconciliation.
