A vocal Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) MP has warned Deputy President William Ruto and his lieutenants against disrupting Madaraka Day celebrations to be held in Narok on June 1st.
The ceremony will be presided by President Uhuru Kenyatta who is the Commander in Chief of Armed Forces.
Speaking on Sunday, Narok North MP, Moitalel ole Kenta disclosed that intense lobbying by the two Jubilee party factions is underway to show which group is more popular and could spoil the national celebrations.
“I understand there is lobbying between the two factions wanting to show who controls Narok. I am warning those planning such unnecessary political showdowns to keep off my constituency of Narok North where the event will take place and Narok at large,”the MP warned.
Kenta, who is in support of the handshake faulted DP Ruto’s allies for politicking at the expense of development and undermining the President who has on numerous occasions warned against pre-mature campaigns.
“When the President says he does not want 2022 politics and his Deputy is all over doing campaigns that is undermining the president and it is wrong,” Kenta fired.
