Nairobi - Grow up, President Uhuru Kenyatta has told ODM MPs.
The President has called on opposition to rise
above retrogressive political activities that do not translate into
alternative policies to compete with the government.
He said empty rhetoric and violent activities will in no way help
build a strong nation but rather derail government efforts of uniting
Kenyans for a cohesive society.
President Kenyatta called on all leaders in the country to carefully
weigh their words and deeds and shun activities that may cause
disharmony among Kenyans.
“I have no problem with having opposition but I want to caution them
to avoid sending wrong messages to wananchi through their actions. I
don’t want divisive politics and name calling but rather constructive
criticism,” said President Kenyatta.
The President pointed out that the Government will not allow
inflammatory utterances that incite Kenyans against each other because
of politics but would continue its efforts of uniting all Kenyans for
tangible development in the country.
“When we were campaigning with ‘my brother Ruto’ we promised to unite
Kenyans and bring peace. We pledged that never again will Kenyans fight
each other because of politics and we are on cause,” said the
The President was reacting to the moves by opposition MPs to disrupt parliamentary proceedings where ODM MPs whistled at the President before being eventually kicked out of the house.
