Nakuru - Deputy President William Ruto has warned Jubilee MPs against making inciting remarks that might lead to ethnic clashes in the country.
Speaking at Kamara in Nakuru County, Ruto said there was great need to bring unity and peace in the country as this was part of Jubilee’s manifesto during their campaigns in 2013.
“Let’s strive to talk about things that bring our people together irrespective of our religious and political persuasions,” The DP said, adding that people should practice a culture of tolerance.
Ruto told off CORD principals for leading divisive politics and giving ultimatums to the government saying, “We can compete on politics but let us not use national unity as a battleground for the competition.”

He called on Jubilee leaders to be exemplary in guarding their mouths and to push forth their mission of uniting all Kenyans.
The DP called on the opposition to use constitutional avenues in solving their differences with the government noting that the demonstrations they have been holding have had great impact on businesses, tourism and also led to loss of innocent lives.
Kiambu Governor William Kabogo who had accompanied Ruto said the Jubilee government was conceived to ensure the country remained united to avoid the age-old ethnic clashes after elections.
Kabogo told Kenyans to beware of leaders who use the divide and rule strategy which leads to instability in the country.
“There are many who want to divide the Jubilee coalition but they should know we are joined by the hip and we are going to rule this country for a long time,” Kabogo said.
