Attacking Raila a waste of time, Jubilee MP tells DP Ruto
06 September 2016, 16:18
Nairobi - A Jubilee Coalition MP says that CORD leader Raila Odinga deserves respect from DP William Ruto.
Nandi Hills MP Alfred Keter says that despite the opposition to the CORD leader, he has achieved alot in the local political scene and deserves respect.
He stated that the DP must crack down on bad statements that are directed towards the CORD leader, saying that they are buying him leverage instead of helping the Jubilee Coalition.
" There must be political tolerance shown. We live in an open society where everyone can speak their mind but there must be respect," the MP said.
Raila has come under increasing attack from the Jubilee folk, with his character in question, something Keter says is avoidable.
" By barraging the CORD leader, we in Jubilee are showing we fear him, which is not the case," he added.
Keter terms Raila an elder statesman who must be treated with the highest regard.
