Respect Uhuru and Ruto, Kikuyu elders ask Kenyans

By John Karume | January 4th 2016

The Kikuyu Council of Elders has called upon all Kenyans to respect President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto.

They said the two national leaders were validly elected into office.

The elders noted it was unfortunate that some leaders were not according the Head of State the respect he deserved.

In resolutions read by Ng'ang'a Nene (secretary general) last week at Ndumberi Stadium in Kiambu, the elders said all elected leaders should be respected and allowed to serve their entire terms.

"We do not want premature campaigns in the country since the next General Election is still far away," they said.

Led by national chairman Wachira Kiago, they warned politicians against fanning hatred, saying the events after the 2007/2008 disputed presidential poll must be avoided at all costs.

"Our leaders should preach unity and peaceful co-existence among all the 42 tribes," said Mr Kiago.
