NAIROBI, Kenya, May 5 – Deputy President William Ruto says leaders in Kiambu County should work together for the benefit of the residents there.
Speaking in Thika town, the Deputy President emphasised the need for them to bury the hatchet and work towards a common goal.
“I want us to understand each other. You people of Kiambu are in the number one constituency in Kenya. You know that the boss (Uhuru Kenyatta) comes from here? As a result of this, we do not want to be divided,” he said.
He stated the need for them to speak with one voice and work together for the sake of development.
“We need to walk together. We do not want to engage in shouting matches; we do not want to fight each other. We want to live in peace for the posterity of future generations,” he stated.
During the visit, Ruto laid the foundation stone for M-PESA Foundation Academy in Mangu.
Kiambu County has witnessed differences between the area MP, Senator and Governor William Kabogo.
President Uhuru Kenyatta had also weighed in on the situation there when he called on the leaders not to involve youths and residents in their differences as this would ruin the children’s future.
In October last year, the County Assembly Majority Leader Simon Komu was dismissed from the position following a vote by Members of the County Assembly allied to TNA.
Gitothua MCA Peter Chege took up the post of the majority leader in the county assembly.
