Uhuru warns leaders to stop divisive politics, focus on development

Uhuru joins other leaders in a cleanup

President Uhuru Kenyatta has warned leaders to stop constant politics and focus on government ‘Big Four’ agenda.

The head of state called for politicians to desist from fuelling unnecessary tension as Kenyans need service delivery and development.

Uhuru was speaking at Uhuru Market in Nairobi County, where he joined Governor Mike Sonko, United Nations Environment Programme Executive Director Erik Solheim and UN Habitat Deputy Executive Director Victor Kisob for a cleanup.

“My main aim is to uplift the lives of our people. We cannot achieve this if we engage in politics and are divided politically. The over 40 million Kenyans want services from those they elected. Let us wait for the five years to lapse to start politics,” he said.

The president also urged political players to respect each other, emphasising that development cannot be divided along political lines, and appealing for them to unite and work with the public.

“We will not feed on our parties but on development. We should respect each other as no development is delivered on party lines like ODM, Jubilee or Wiper.

Let us work together as this is our country. We have nowhere to go to so let us pull together to help our people,” Uhuru said.
