Nandi senator Samson Cherargei has warned those that are opposing the deputy president. In a clip widely shared on social media, the senator called out on those who have been attacking the deputy president.
Senator Cherargei said that ‘they’ have been marking and profiling all those who did not support Ruto.
Earlier yesterday, the media reported that there will be a possible contest between Raila Odinga and William Ruto. This was a confirmation of speculations which has led to formation of two functions, ‘Kieleweke’ which supports the union between Raila and president Uhuru and ‘Tanga Tanga’ which supports the deputy president.
It is not clear how they have been profiling those opposed to Ruto. He went ahead to state that when the ‘time’ comes, they will deal with the profiled individuals.
This has elicited reaction from the ‘kieleweke’ group which has continuously accused the rift valley leaders of instilling fear to the people living in those areas.
According to Nyeri Mp, Ngunjiri Wambugu, the utterances by tge senator are meant to hold Kenyans hostage and vote for the deputy president under duress.
The National Cohesion and Integration Commission has been key in taming political utterances that may fuel political tension. It will be interesting to see if the Senator will be put to task to explain his utterances.
