Kalonzo stooped too low to link Mu­tua to ab­duc­tion

The Star (Kenya) - - News Business -

It’s em­bar­rass­ing for a re­spected leader and diplo­mat such as for­mer Vice Pres­i­dent Kalonzo Musyoka to stoop too low and ac­cuse some­one of play­ing a role in an ab­duc­tion with­out any ev­i­dence. Ad­dress­ing a pub­lic rally in his Ukam­bani back­yard, he linked Machakos Gov­er­nor Al­fred Mu­tua to the al­leged kid­nap­ping of Deputy Gov­er­nor Bernard Kiala’s daugh­ter. She was later found in Mwiki. It wasn’t a kid­nap­ping case. Dur­ing this cam­paign pe­riod, we ex­pect lead­ers to be­have in a more ma­ture man­ner, not to po­larise the coun­try.
