Kibaki urges Kenyans to shun tribalism

24 December 2015, 08:09 Joseph Njung'eh

Nyeri - Former President Mwai Kibaki has asked Kenyans to live in unity and shun tribalism.

Speaking at Karima Catholic Church in Othaya, Nyeri County, during the burial service of his childhood friend and classmate Ejidio Ngati Wahome, Kibaki called on Kenyans to embrace peace and love.

“Let us promote unity by loving each other; love is key to our prosperity and stability. God’s calling is that we should continue loving one another as Kenyans. We should have a good heart that pleases God,” said Kibaki.

He was accompanied by Othaya MP Mary Wambui and Amani National Congress (ANC) party leader Musalia Mudavadi who said the late Wahome’s service to people knew no boundary, race or even tribe.

Mudavadi said his close friendship with Wahome and his children dates back to the days he was a student at the University of Nairobi, during the infamous coup in 1982.

He said the deceased who was a career civil servant was not tribal, and asked other leaders to emulate him.

“During the 1982 attempted coup, Ngatia’s son and I were students at the University of Nairobi. We managed to escape from the institution unhurt to their home at Upper Hill. The family hosted me for one week until the clashes elapsed. Ngatia was a great man,” Mudavadi said.

On her part, Wambui challenged Kenyans to shun tribalism and embrace love for the sake of development.

Wambui vowed to accomplish all development projects that were initiated by her predecessor and called for her constituents to support her.
