Interior Principal Secretary Karanja Kibicho has told Kenyans to avoid being divided by politicians during this campaign period.

Mr Kibicho told Kenyans to be wary of politicians who want to use them for selfish gain.

Speaking during a funds-drive at Odienya SDA church in Rangwe constituency, Kibicho urged leaders and citizens to embrace political maturity.

He said mature politics will enable Kenyans to avoid violence which may result from the 2022 election.

“What we need is inclusivity and cohesion of citizens of this country,” said the PS. Kibicho, who was in the company of the National Cohesion and Integration Commission chairman Samuel Kobia and other commissioners including Philip Okundi, said politics should not be used to sow seeds of discord.

“Elections come and goes but the country is ours for posterity,” Kibicho said. He praised the March 9, 2018 handshake between President Uhuru Kenyatta and ODM leader Raila Odinga, saying it created a conducive environment for government to function.
