Leaders court trouble with ICC prayer rallies
By Nehru Mangicho | October 13th 2015
Kenyans, and especially political leaders, forget too fast? One just needs to listen to the current trash, vitriol and vendetta from our politicians in regard to the International Criminal Court case that Deputy President William Ruto and radio journalist Joshua arap Sang are facing to confirm this.
It all started with Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria’s wild allegations at a prayer rally.
Sadly, this notorious blame game is gradually fanning political and ethnic tension in most parts of the country.
In fact, any sensible Kenyan, especially those who were caught up in the 2007-2008 post-election violence, cannot afford to entertain such primitive nonsense, and are just left holding their breath, praying that such a crude calamity doesn’t recur.
Surprisingly, our politicians, more so from the ruling Jubilee coalition, seem to be taking things and Kenyans for a ride.
Yet again, President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy Ruto have assumed an unusual aloofness, completely failing to offer leadership. If they don’t act with urgency, then Kenyans should brace for another bloody post-election atmosphere come 2017. God forbid!
Religious leaders should take prayers seriously, but not the concerts they treat Kenyans to by having irrelevant politicians dictate the agenda.
