Shame leaders who preach ethnic hatred, reject them at the ballot, Mudavadi urges
Amani leader Musalia Mudavadi has urged Kenyans to reject leaders who divide them along tribal lines. He said leaders who sow ethnic animosity do not deserve to be elected because they want to take the country backward. Mudavadi said such selfish leaders undermine development. He spoke during the burial of Stephen Pertet in Ololulung’a in Narok South constituency. Pertet is the father in-law of former Lugari MP Cyrus Jirongo. Those present included Vihiga Senator George Khaniri, Oljororok MP John Waiganjo, former National Assembly Speaker Kenneth Marende and Jirongo. Mudavadi said every leader has a duty to unite all Kenyans, regardless of their tribes or races, so the nation can move forward in harmony. “Some leaders went underground after winning elections. They are getting out of their hideouts to seek votes from people they had abandoned. I urge voters to shame them at the 2017 elections” he said.
