In Summary
  • Mr Sudi accused President Kenyatta's administration of down the country's economy.
  • But the elders told leaders from the region to desist from politicising the fight against corruption.
  • The elders said the Kimwarer and Arror dams would have transformed the region economically.

Elders and professionals from Elgeyo-Marakwet County have distanced themselves from remarks by Kapseret MP Oscar Sudi directed at President Uhuru Kenyatta.

The elders, who held a meeting in Eldoret Monday, told off Mr Sudi over claims that the fight against corruption is targeting leaders from certain regions.

“We wish to disassociate ourselves from careless utterances of some elected leaders. Theirs is to undermine the efforts made by the government to fight corruption. We urge leaders to respect the institution of the presidency for it is a symbol of national unity,” said Mr Yusuf Keitany, an elder.

RESIGN

In a bare-knuckle attack on the president, Mr Sudi, who was speaking to journalists at his Kapseret home last Thursday, dared President Kenyatta to resign, terming his administration as the most incompetent since independence.

Mr Sudi accused President Kenyatta's administration of down the country's economy.
