Deputy President William Ruto has asked politicians not to diminish President Uhuru Kenyatta’s profile to that of a Mt Kenya leader.
He said it was unfortunate that a section of leaders were branding the President as a tribal leader.
Dr Ruto noted that President Kenyatta was elected by Kenyans from every part of the country to be a symbol of national unity.
“If you say President Kenyatta is the leader of this (Central) region, then who is our leader?” He posed.
Speaking today during the burial of Thika MP Patrick Wainaina’s mother in Mang’u, Kiambu County, Dr Ruto said he has never considered himself as a the leader of Rift Valley but a servant of all Kenyans.
He asked leaders to shun tribal politics and serve Kenyans irrespective of their ethnicity.
