A section of Kalenjin community leaders have slammed President Uhuru Kenyatta for his blossoming relationship with ODM leader, Raila Odinga, terming the latter as someone who cannot be trusted.
On march 9th, 2018, Uhuru and Raila Odinga resolved to work together and unite the nation after a divisive Presidential Election in 2017.
Though many Kenyans welcomed the initiative, a section of Kalenjin leaders opposed the handshake saying it is a plot to derail Deputy President William Ruto’s presidential bid in 2022.
The leaders led by Nandi Governor, Stephen Sang, dared Uhuru to stop implementing projects in Rift Valley, adding that Ruto will work on them when he becomes President in 2022.
“Ruto is the son of God and Kenyans.”
“The son of a peasant should be President.”
“If you don’t want to implement development projects in the region, we will do them in 2022 when our time comes,” Sang told mourners in a funeral in Soy constituency.
