Religious leaders have come out to ask Kenyans to end their criticism on president Uhuru Kenyatta as he retires. The leaders said that Uhuru and Raila were embarrassed after their defeat in the general elections but that should not form a foundation for them to be tortured by Kenyans. The leaders have urged Kenyans not to criticize the retiring president during the swearing in of William Ruto on Tuesday.
Speaking at the All Saints Cathedral Provost, the senior Bishop Sammy Wainaina urged Kenyans to have mercy on president Uhuru Kenyatta as he will be handing over power to his deputy on Tuesday.
"President Uhuru Kenyatta remains to be our leader even though his candidate was defeated in the elections. He may not have been of service to some of us but he does not deserve to be criticized or abused. These two leaders deserve respect," the Bishop said.
President Uhuru is now counting hours before his title of being president is revoked. After the Tuesday swearing in Uhuru will go home to take a long rest. Follow the page for more news updates daily.
