Tuesday, October 13th, 2020
Deputy President William Ruto has urged leaders to take the lead in eliminating political and social barriers that divide Kenyans.
“We are determined to get rid of tribal politics that take us backwards. We must end politics of divisions and hatred and focus on development and unity of all Kenyans,” said Ruto.
He said the government would continue to serve all Kenyans irrespective of how they voted during the last General Election.
“What we are doing to all Kenyans is not a favour but a right for them. This is government of all Kenyans,” said Ruto.
The Deputy President, who was meeting a group of clergy from Luo Nyanza, told the church leaders not to be bothered by some individuals who keep on criticising those who visit their political leaders in any part of the country.
“You have a right to visit any leaders in any part of this country on matters of development. You have a right to consult me on any issue.
No one should criticise you for visiting me on matters of spiritual or development because I am your servant,” said Ruto.
Ruto added he remains steadfast in the quest to empower small-scale business owners across the country.
Head of the delegation, the Most Rev Calleb Olali, Supreme Archbishop Nomiya Faith Churches urged politicians to tolerate one another.
“The Bible tells us that anyone who hates another person is a murderer. There is no peace without tolerance and there is no tolerance without accepting one another,” said Archbishop Olali.
He said leaders should stop embracing divisive and politics based on hatred.
