Matungulu member of parliament Stephen Mule has lashed out at the government led by President Uhuru Kenyatta and the Interior Ministry led by Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i, claiming that Kenyans are not receiving adequate security, particularly during this election season.
Mule, speaking in Machakos County on Saturday, stated that the government cannot fail in its responsibilities of ensuring the safety of Kenyans attending political rallies, as well as leaders seeking different elective positions in the August 9 elections.
He urged the duo to rise to the occasion and demonstrate their concern for Kenyans by ensuring the country’s security.
Mule urged leaders to be politically tolerant of each other after recent clashes between UPIA and UDM supporters in Marsabit County during the Azimio La Umoja One Kenya Alliance rally led by Raila Odinga, his running mate Martha Karua, and Wiper party leader Kalonzo Musyoka.
“I want to tell those running for office that the time for inciting Kenyans to disrupt peace has passed; we are at a time when Kenyans want campaigns based on ideas and agendas, not insults that will lead to chaos,” Wiper said.
