Kikuyu MP Kimani Ichungwa has reacted to President Uhuru Kenyatta’s condemnation of violence against leaders following an incident involving the Azimio la Umoja’s Presidential candidate Raila Odinga’s helicopter in Soy last week.

Mr Ichungwa said the public condemnation of violence by the president was welcome despite expressing reservations about his inaction in the past when similar incidents were targeted at Deputy President William Ruto and his allies.

“I fully concur with you and indeed join you in condemning any manner of violence against anyone based on their political beliefs or affiliation,” he stated. “This, Mr President, must and should include verbal violence, (such as you calling elected leaders Ghasia, Takataka, Washenzi, state intimidation, coercion and outright victimization by state officers and agencies of those not aligned to your political persuasion,” Ichung’wah went on to state in an open letter to President Kenyatta. The Kikuyu Member of Parliament is an ardent supporter of DP William Ruto.

He singled out a Mediamax Network-operated vernacular broadcaster for propagating such messages. “I encourage you Mr President to equally condemn and use your office to put to an abrupt stop the Ethnic Incitement, profiling and outright hate-mongering done by your family-owned media through Kameme FM.”
