A group of youth affiliated with the Jubilee party in Narok County has warned politicians against insulting the president in their campaign trail.
The county Jubilee Youth chairman Stephen Ole Paan, said Narok was a peaceful county and would not allow anyone who brings divisive politics in the county.
Ole Paan asked politicians to sell their manifesto instead of disseminating hate messages to residents that could easily result in chaos before or after the elections.
“How can young people sit back to watch our president Being insulted day in and day out by people with selfish interests? We want to tell them to keep off our president,” he said.
Another youth Hussein Mohamed said the youth in the county will bar any politician who will insult President Uhuru Kenyatta from speaking in public. They were speaking to members of the press after holding a meeting
“From today onwards, we will not allow anyone to stand in front of people and insult our president under our watch. We will ensure we prevent them from speaking,” he said.
The youth leader asked all peace-loving citizens to preach peace whenever they go so as to achieve cohesion and integration in the county.
“We are the majority in this country and we deserve a peaceful environment where we can do business and earn a living. We do not want utterances that will cause division in the country,” he said.
Their sentiments were echoed by Nick Pareyio, the county Boda Boda chairman, who reiterated that his sector will not be used by politicians to breach peace.
“The boda boda operators will no longer be used to cause chaos. We are peace-loving people and we will be in the front line of building cohesion in the country even as we near elections,” he said.
