The Kenyan religious leaders have now come in to defend the outgoing President Uhuru Kenyatta and his handshake partner Raila Odinga over the outcome of the August 9 general elections, urging Kenyans to show respect to president Uhuru Kenyatta during the swearing in of the President-elect William Samoei Ruto on Tuesday, September 11.
While speaking on Sunday at the All saints Cathedral Provost, Dr Sammy wainaina asked Kenyans to be graceful to president Uhuru Kenyatta as he will be handing over power to the incoming head of state William Ruto.
"President Uhuru Kenyatta equally remains our leader, even if his candidate lost the elections. He may not have been perfect to some, but he doesn't deserve heckling or insult. Those two leaders require respect and honour," stated the clergy.
The man of God further praised Uhuru Kenyatta for having led the country peacefully in the last ten years, adding that he should be shown some respect as he quits Office.
