Nairobi – Kenyans on Monday were urged to embrace
national cohesion, reject negative ethnicity and openly table issues
that promote division along tribal lines.
Speaking during the opening of a two-day conference on national
diversity, race and ethnicity, Prime Minister Raila Odinga raised
concerns over fueling of tribal divisions especially with the expected
onset of the general election.
“As political activity has picked up, we have tried to use our
competitive political process to discourage unity and stir up ethnic
emotions. We have tried to nurture an excuse that political competition
does not and cannot encourage unity. We must march into the future not
as tribesmen, races or a select grouping of people, we must march as
Kenyans,” he urged.
