UhuRuto turning the Presidency into a preserve of two communities, laments MP

05 July 2016, 16:31 Jackson Okata

Nairobi - President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto are slowly turning the Presidency into a preserve of two communities and that is dangerous for the country, a member of Parliament has said.

According to Kuresoi south Member of Parliament Zakayo Cheruiyot, the agreement between Uhuru and Ruto is to pass the Presidency from the Kikuyu community to the Kalenjin community and back.

He said other Kenyan communities will not sit and watch as the country is dominated by two tribes year in  year out, and supported the proposal to have a rotational Presidency in the country.

Cheruiyot said that it will be unreasonable for Ruto to have a Kikuyu running mate in 2022 and pass over the mantle to the Kikuyu community in 2032.

He called on UhuRuto not to treat other Kenyan tribes as lesser tribes saying that could divide the nation further.

“We cannot have only two tribes leading Kenya since independence and think we'll have one united nation called Kenya. We must realize that this kind of political dominance is what brings problems in most countries like it happened in Rwanda and like it is happening in South Sudan now,” he said.

“It will be politically wrong for the Presidency to be treated as a preserve of two tribes in Kenya because this will make other tribes to feel out of place,” he said.

“I don’t see anything wrong with having a Luo or Luhya President after President Kenyatta,” he added.
