Meru senator, Mithika Linturi, has become a subject of discussion following his remarks in Eldoret where he was part of the brigade that accompanied Deputy President William Ruto.
While addressing the crowd, Linturi sparked controversy when he made inflammatory remarks, invoking the “Madoadoa” term, with a section of the public claiming that his sentiment amounted to ethnic incitement.
In response to these sentiments, Kitutu Chache MP, Richard Onyonka, has come out to link DP Ruto with the utterances by Linturi. According to the legislator, Linturi was just a messenger.
Onyonka went ahead to warn Ruto that if anything happens to the Kisii community residing in Eldoret, he will go to him to seek answers.
The DP, however, has warned politicians to be mindful of their language when on the campaign trail and implored leaders to strive towards uniting the country ahead of the upcoming August elections.
Do you think Linturi’s remarks amount to ethnic incitement? And could they lead to dire consequences if no stern action is taken against offenders as we approach August polls?
Meanwhile, here are the stories making headlines today:
