Apologize to Kenyans for Ntimama shouting match, Rift Valley leader tells Uhuru, Raila
15 September 2016, 17:56
Nairobi - A KANU official says that the shouting match between
President Uhuru Kenyatta and CORD leader Raila Odinga in Narok was wrong and
urged them to apologize to Kenyans.
The two leaders went for each other’s throats at the funeral
of former Cabinet Minister William Ole Ntimama, trading political blows which
threatened to turn ugly.
And according to Pokot Senator John Lonyangapuo, the
incident was embarrassing and worth an apology to Kenyans.
“Kenyans deserve an apology from their leaders who have
decided to wash their dirty laundry in public,” he told News24.
He said that despite there being freedom of speech and
expression, such incidences should not play out in public.
“It was disappointing to see such an incident take place and
it was in front of the nation at the funeral of a public servant. That is
wrong,” he added.
Lonyangapuo joins Musalia Mudavadi the ANC leader in asking
for the two leaders to apologize to Kenyans.
