Kenyan politicians warned against propagating hate

President Kenyatta warned political leaders against pursuing selfish personal interests at the expense of Kenya's peace and cohesion.

Speaking on Wednesday when he conferred City status on Nakuru town, northwest of Nairobi, President Kenyatta said divisive politics was disruptive for the country's socio-economic transformation agenda.

"No one will come to put up factories or industries or visit as a tourist, a country experiencing chaos and violence, and that's why I am telling you, my fellow citizens, not to interrupt the peace we are enjoying," the President said.

President Kenyatta appealed to the youth not to be hoodwinked by empty rhetoric and sloganeering into supporting the political ambitions of individuals known for advancing divisive politics.

“We should not take peace for granted. That’s why I am telling the Kenyan youth not to be hoodwinked with empty promises. It is easy to give promises but understand that peace is the foundation of development,” the President advised.

Kenyans will be heading to polls next year August to elect their fifth President, Senators, Governors, MPs and ward representatives.
