Desist from retrogressive politics for the benefit of Kenyans, Wetang’ula urges politicians
National Assembly Speaker, Moses Wetang’ula, has urged politicians across Kenya to abandon any retrogressive political moves that could harm the country’s economy and frustrate citizens.
During a Sunday mass service at Christ the King Catholic Church in Kanduyi, Wetang’ula emphasized that Kenya has moved beyond the general elections of last year, and there is no need for politicians to engage in planned protests.
The speaker emphasized that Kenya is currently enjoying a peaceful political climate and there is no need to raise political temperatures.
He called on politicians to slow down and allow the Kenyan government to work towards making life better and more affordable for citizens.
“I want to tell our politicians to go slow as Kenya Kwanza government works to make life better and more affordable,” Wetangula said.
Azimio la Umoja-One Kenya coalition has announced that ‘people’s baraza’ rallies will continue as planned.
Azimio leader Raila Odinga last Sunday said the coalition will hold a rally today in Kibera’s Kamukunji Grounds and another on February 10 in Mavoko, Machakos County.
Bungoma Senator David Wafula Wakoli took a swipe at the leadership of Uasin Gishu County for an incident that took place on January 27 where county askaris in the guise of evicting illegal clothing vendors at West Market, raided the Mombasa Millers NCPB stores.
According to Wakoli, the raid was carried out with brutality and was aimed at driving a wedge between the Luhyas and Kalenjins who live and work together.
Wakoli called on Uasin Gishu Senator Jackson Mandago to take action against the county government officials involved in the matter.
In response, Senator Mandago stated that the officers involved in the incident were ghost workers and that the county leadership had already commenced investigations and taken action.
