Youth tell off leaders being used by opposition.  

 
Kapsowar 7/12/2016 - A cross-section of youths have warned some leaders in Rift Valley against being used by the opposition to divide the Kalenjin community ahead of the next polls for their selfish gains.
 
Kerio Youths Association chairman Joel Kimaiyo said sustained political attacks directed at the Deputy President William Ruto by some leaders in the region are aimed at ruining another chances for the community to ascend to the presidency.
 
Mr. Kimaiyo took issue with Kanu chairman and Baringo Senator Gideon Moi and Bomet Governor Isaac Ruto for their continuous onslaught at the Deputy President in order to discredit his development initiatives in the region.
 
‘We want to tell some leaders opposed to the leadership of Deputy President that they are ruining the chances of the Kalenjin community ascending to the presidency,’ said Kimaiyo
 
The youths said leaders in the region should be wary of attempts by the opposition to use them to divide votes from the area to achieve their selfish gains.
 
Speaking to the press in Kapsowar town in Elgeyo Marakwet County today, the youths said some leaders in the area were resorting to name tarnishing with an aim of bringing down the Deputy President.
 
‘It is wrong for some leaders to continue engaging in divisive politics with the aim of undermining the leadership of the Deputy President.
 
They said the recent meeting between Bomet governor and opposition leaders Raila Odinga was a clear indication that they will work together in the next election.
 
Mr. Kimaiyo wondered why Rift Valley leaders cannot learn from other communities like Luo Nyanza where they were fully supporting their leader Mr Raila Odinga.
 
“Now our leaders are being used to divide the Kalenjin community by Mr Odinga knowing well that his people are firmly behind him. He wants us to lose come next elections for his gains. As community we should be very careful on this,’ said Kimaiyo.
 
The youths told the Jubilee government not to be cowed down by the frequent attacks but instead focus on service delivery to Kenyans.
 
"Jubilee should know that the opposition is desperate and have no hope in next year's election because it is clear President Uhuru Kenyatta will win. 2017 is concluded and the opposition is preparing for 2022, which we are also confident that Ruto will win. Opposition utterances should just be ignored,’ said Kimaiyo.
