The recent bitter exchange between President Uhuru Kenyatta and Deputy President William Ruto is not healthy for the nation.
Kabazi MCA Dr Peter Mbae who has a background in matters peace and conflict resolution says the two are a symbol of national unity hence should not exchange bitter words in public.
While noting that there has been misunderstanding especially after each took different political stands, Mbae says they should ensure unity of the nation.
“I call for a stop of exchanges between the President and his Deputy, who wield constitutional powers but are on the opposite sides of political contest. South Sudan was a bad example. It’s a fact they fell off but they should steer the nation towards a peaceful election and handover” he said.
The vocal Nakuru MCA who is a close associate of Deputy President William Ruto says over 50 million Kenyans need to move on with their lives after the August 9 polls..
Mbae also called on IEBC to ensure peaceful elections by responding to all queries being raised..
“We have over 50 million Kenyans who will need to move on with life after 10th. And let IEBC answer queries to assure all of verifiable polls so that all can accept results” said Mbae.
