Uhuru warns political leaders over incitement

26 June 2016, 07:22 Joseph Njung’eh

Nairobi - President Uhuru Kenyatta has warned political leaders against inciting Kenyans and preaching hatred among communities to create instability.

Uhuru said hate speech utterances by leaders were ‘regretful’ and will affect the country’s growth and development.

“Leaders should be dedicated to see Kenya turning to be a more developed country. Make our country a better place and avoid wayward characters,” said Uhuru.

He urged politicians to participate in uniting Kenyans, uphold integrity and good morals.

Speaking at Wamagana grounds in Tetu, Nyeri County during the burial of Hannah Wanjiru Matong’e, mother to Government’s Chief of Staff Joseph Kinyua, Uhuru complained that Kenyans had neglected principles of life.

“We must go back to our basic principles in order for this country to be terrific. There are a lot of negativities happening in our country and damaging image of our social life,” complained the President.

He was accompanied by a group of Cabinet Secretaries, Principal Secretaries and senior security officers including Joseph Boinnet (Police Inspector General) and Chief of Defence Forces (CDF) Samson Mwathethe.

Others were MPs Ndung’u Gethenji (Tetu), Mary Wambui (Othaya), Esther Murugi (Nyeri Town), Kanini Kega (Kieni), Peter Weru (Mathira), Joe Mutambu (Mwingi Central), Annah Nyokabi (Kiambu) and Nyeri Governor Nderitu Gachagua.

The deceased, survived by six children, was later interred at home in Mathakwaini village.
