Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka has condemned leaders who hurled unprintable insults at President Uhuru Kenyatta and his family.
The former vice president urged leaders to refrain from uttering remarks that could fan violence and hatred among the Kenyan people.
He was referring to Emurua Dikirr Johana Ng’eno and Kapseret’s Oscar Sudi who were on Monday rebuked for the abusive language.
“It is quite shocking that the two legislators, in their zeal to score political points, chose to go for the former First Lady’s jugular.
“…hurling unprintable epithets at her persona and character, while fully aware of her inability to talk back or (to) give a measured response to the allegations leveled against her,” Kalonzo said in a statement.
He said that the “obscene” remarks were totally uncalled for, adding that the rebuking from Kenyans was well deserved.
“They deserve condemnation from all right-thinking Kenyans. We are in a heated political crucible, but this is no excuse for some Kenyans to exceed the boundaries of decency,” he added.
“Let us learn to reason together as Kenyans. We must not let raw emotions destroy the very national fabric of our Nation.”
Earlier, a section of leaders called for Deputy President William Ruto to personally apologize to the president since the remarks were made by his allies.
