Deputy President William Ruto has asked Jubilee leaders to desist from engaging in the politics of ethnicity and division.
He said the party’s foundation is on unity and prosperity of the country.
Speaking in Mumias West Constituency in Kakamega County on Saturday, Ruto said the development of the country is dependent on the kind of politics pursued by leaders.
“Our politics should be one that is after making the lives of Kenyans better. That is our primary responsibility,” he said.
He regretted that some leaders were spending time to engage in political hate rather than focusing on serving those who voted for them.
The Deputy President was accompanied by MPs Johnson Naicca (Mumias West), Benjamin Washiali (Mumias East), John Waluke (Sirisia), Malili Injendi (Malava), Justus Murunga (Matungu), Eric Muchangi (Runyenjes), George Murugara (Tharaka) and Charles Njagagua (Mbeere North).
Others were former Kakamega Senator Boni Khalwale and former Sports Cabinet Secretary Rashid Mohamed.
The Deputy President noted that Jubilee leaders have the obligation of sticking to the party’s manifesto that would ultimately eliminate tribalism and empower Kenyans.
“We agreed during the birth of Jubilee that the leadership of this country would not be based on tribalism, hate or division but unity and prosperity,” he explained.
Mumias West MP said the region would rally behind leaders who would add value to the people.
