DAP- K party tweeted,”Since independence, Kenya has been ruled by two tribes Kalenjins & Kikuyus while the rest have been left to beg na salivate. This has led to imbalanced development,representation & nepotism. It was hoped that the 2010 constitution will bring change, unfortunately not.”
WMM tweeted,”Some people are complaining about tribalism when an entire tribe supports only one person for the last 50 years and boasts of being loyal to their kingpin and nobody ever points an accusing finger. The other kingpin was hunted even at night to deliver his tribe to kuzimia.”
