Kenya’s weak moral fabric and our politicians’ lack of restraint was without a doubt widely exposed after the latest unfortunate verbal attacks by MPs Oscar Sudi and Johana Ng’eno on the Head of State and former First Lady Mama Ngina Kenyatta.
The controversial Emurua Dikirir MP, who was arrested on Monday, is accused of inciting his constituents and making statements against the President and his family during a visit to Kiminnet in Transmara on Sunday.
The vulgar slurs have now turned into a political gimmick with a section of leaders turning their attention to Deputy President William Ruto, whom they believe should personally apologise to the first family since Sudi and Ng’eno are his mouthpieces.
Ruto, who through his Twitter account condemned the remarks made by the Kapseret MP, was later contacted by Jubilee Party Secretary-General Raphael Tuju who asked him to tame the leaders who were beating the drums of war.
With Ruto now under fire for not doing enough to tame his cronies, do you think Uhuru, the DP and ODM supremo Raila Odinga should be responsible for putting their ‘foot soldiers’ in check to avoid raising political temperatures in the country?
