Kutuny Blasts Ledama in Raila’s Presence During Narok BBI Rally

Cherangany MP Joshua Kutuny took a swipe at Narok Senator Ledama Ole Kina during the Narok BBI meeting.

Kutuny, who is known for using metaphors during the meetings, blasted the leader over making comments that will come back to haunt him.

The vocal politician noted that Ledama needed to be careful with utterances that may come out tribalistic.

He reiterated that the Kalenjins and Masaai people were one.

The lawmaker remarked that leaders needed to find better solutions to deal with situations and not revert to ethnical lines.

Viongozi wangu nataka kuwaomba, hata kama una uchungu tukae chini tuzungumze tutafute suluhu. Governor hapa ni Masaai Deputy Governor ni Mkale. Sisi na nyinyi ni kama meno ya umbwa, hayaumani(Leaders, I would like to urge you that even when you are aggrieved, let us sit down and find a solution. We are like the teeth of a dog that don’t chomp together),” expressed Kutuny.

The lawmaker mentioned that tribalism would distort the essence of the President Uhuru Kenyatta and Raila Odinga initiative.

On Thursday, Ledama found himself in hot soup after it was insinuated he made tribalistic comments.

Kenyans turned on the ODM Senator who during the JKLive show, resorted to ethnical lines to pronounce what will be discussed during the Narok BBI gathering.

According to the leader, the gathering was for the Masaai people alone.

This caused an uproar from Kericho Senator Aaron Cheruiyot who was part of the discussion.

Cheruiyot forced the host Jeff Koinange to intervene and try and regulate the ‘Chungwa’ party member.

The concern raised by netizens caused the NCIC to take action and issue Ledama with a summon over the incident.

On Friday, the tension in the area hit a new level when leaders led by Narok Deputy Governor Evalyn Aruasa, Emurua Dikirr MP Johana Ng’eno and some MCAs walked out of a delegates meeting held in the area.

The angry lot alleged that the forum went tribalistic.

Details emerged later that the late Ole Ntimama’s daughter Leah was the reason behind the storming out of the politicians.

Leah commented that the Governor and deputy governor should both hail from the Masaai community alone.

In addition, she condemned the people of the area for electing a Kipsigis as their deputy governor.
