Siaya Senator James Orengo is concerned about the latest angry outbursts he has witnessed in the political arena, particularly among UDA politicians.
Orengo alluded to the type of speeches delivered at the UDA rally in Thika Stadium on Sunday, as well as the remarks delivered by the majority of UDA MPs at the UDA National Delegates Convention on Tuesday.
The senator urged Kenya Kwanza politicians to exercise restraint, warning that such animosity would wreak havoc on the country.
“The level of bitterness among compatriots cannot bode well unless we want hell on Earth.” “Take a deep breath, UDA, before the next deafening salvo of rage and diatribe,” Orengo advised.
During the UDA rally at Thika Stadium, many speakers lashed out at President Uhuru Kenyatta, accusing him of betraying DP Ruto by supporting Raila Odinga for the presidency.
The speeches in Thika were so outrageous that it sparked a small protest among Thika’s youth on Monday, just a day after the rally. The youths claimed that it was wrong for UDA to insult the president while he was still in his home county.
Governor Nyoro, enraged by such remarks, issued a stern warning to the UDA politicians who attacked President Uhuru in Thika, demanding a public apology from them. Nyoro, for example, was outraged that the Kenya Kwanza brigade went so far as to target Uhuru’s mother, Mama Ngina Kenyatta.
Aside from Nyoro, renowned political analyst Mutahi Ngunyi chastised that party for openly disrespecting the president.
