Nakuru - A member of Parliament has challenged president Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto to also hold prayer rallies for post election violence victims.
Kuresoi south MP, Zakayo Cheruiyot lamented that the government is more focused on the ICC ex-suspects and has forgotten about the victims.
Speaking Saturday in Nakuru town, Cheruiyot said that UhuRuto should hold a rally to pray for the victims and remember those who died in the 2007/2008 clashes.
"We have seen so many prayer rallies for the former ICC suspects but no one is holding a similar rally for the victims who suffered immensely during the violence," said Cheruiyot.
"The president and his deputy should be holding a rally to pray for the victims some of whom are still suffering until now," he said.
He called on the nation to address the real causes of the 2007/2008 post poll violence to avoid a repeat of the same.
