Tharaka Nithi Senator Kithure Kindiki has challenged the clergies calling for a reunion between President Uhuru Kenyatta and Deputy President William Ruto ahead of the looming 2022 general elections, with political pundits alleging that should the duo fail to reconcile, the country might have a repeat of the post-election violence that was reported in 2007-08.
Kindiki, who equally serves as one of the top lawyers in the country hinted out that the Clergies are more focused on Uhuru and DP Ruto`s reunion forgetting that the two heads of state need to equally apologize to Kenyans.
According to Kindiki, Kenyans have been affected by the cold war witnessed by Uhuru and DP Ruto including but not least, the high costs of living and poor leadership in the face of the deadly novel, Corona Virus.
He therefore, opine that it will be of great impact if Kenyans are equally considered ahead of the unity calls since they have been so vulnerable to a divided country on grounds of leadership.
“The clergy are missing the point to suggest that the challenges facing our nation into the future requires only reconciling two individuals, the President and his deputy. What ought to be done is to reconcile and restore the broken relationship between the post-2017 Jubilee government and the people,” said the Lawmaker, Kindiki.
However, a section of Kenyans, slammed Uhuru for allegedly joining arms with Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) Party Leader Raila Odinga and the Former NASA Principals to fight his deputy.
On the other hand, a section of other netizens deconstructed DP Ruto claiming that the latter disrespected his boss, Uhuru, by allegedly conducting early campaigns, a move that angered Uhuru leading to a wider gap between their formerly conducive environment.
