Spiritual leaders from the Catholic church raises concerns over Ruto’s appointments and Raila’s mass action.
Regarding Ruto’s appointment, they were drawn to the issue after Kenyans aired that president William is only appointing political rejects who backed him in his presidential race and his tribesmen.
They stated that president Ruto should consider the economy of Kenyans and their suffering before appointing people to offices that will cost taxpayers’ money.
They stated,” We ask the President to listen to the pleas of Kenyan citizens in distress, we are yet to fully address the issue of famine and high cost of living.”
“We feel sad that in these moments when Kenyans are suffering and struggling, we received the news of yet a huge expansion of an already bloated budget,” they added.
They clarified that they are not against the appointments, but the president is making them at the wrong time.
Muheria posed,” We feel sad that in this moment we are not discussing if it is merit-worthy but the question is, is it opportune to do it when Kenyans are struggling?”
Separately, these leaders showed their concerns on the current state of affairs and the political theatrics that are causing so much tension in the country.
Archbishop stated,”We are concerned with the rising tensions within our country. We are concerned about the confrontational attitude we are taking. It is concerning with the ease our political leaders are taking us towards the path of incitement.”
“We want to appeal to Raila as a person, and to the entire leadership of the opposition, you are in your right to express yourself but we should not sell to this country anything that sounds revolutionary in terms of mutiny,”he added.
However, Nyanza region nation council of churches supported Raila in his quest.”
NCCK stated,”These demonstrations we are witnessing from Azimio are a way of protesting against exclusivity where two communities tend to control all the appointments in this country.”
