Uasin Gishu Governor Jackson Mandago has called upon the residents of Rift Valley Region to focus on their lives, and avoid indulging in to the differences between President Uhuru Kenyatta and his Deputy William Ruto.
Speaking in Baringo yesterday, Mandago stated that the fall out between the two leaders would not be the reason as to why the residents and Kenyans get divided into tribal lines, or cause violence.
He went on to state that Kenyans should stay awake and know that life will move on irregardless of which leader is elected as president in 2022, adding that it is important to have a united and peaceful country.
“Elections just happen on one day but life is continuous. Let's ignore the politics by our leaders let's not harbor deep political feelings,” said Mandago as quoted by the Star.
Drumming support for Ruto's presidential bid, Mandago stated that for the past years, the country's politics and top positions have been crowned by leaders from prominent families, and it was time that norm changed.
He however called upon political leaders to desist from using abusive languages that might indirectly or directly have an influence in next year's general elections.
The Jubilee governor added that it was a democratic right of every Kenyan to seek any elective post, and ensure they respect the law and do it peacefully.
