Deputy President William Ruto has condemned security agencies who attempted to disrupt the funeral of Mohoo Ward MCA Ronald Sagurani in Taita Taveta County.
Ruto apologised on behalf of the Government saying the act was petty and unnecessary.
“The disruption of the funeral so that I don’t attend the ceremony is embarrassing. Those who planned it don’t know our history with the deceased, He was not just my supporter but my good friend,” He said.
Ruto said the disrespect and harassment will come to an end soon adding that he is a resident of Taita Taveta County and would therefore not miss the funeral.
“I ask my friends in politics to be respectful and shun confrontations. What happened this morning is shameful, There were no votes or a political contest in this funeral. The same Government that Sagurani voted for is now disrupting his funeral,” He said.
Dr Ruto said those who want to change the constitution to share positions have no regard for the majority of Kenyans who are suffering.
“We must change this Country. Those that are unemployed must get jobs before we increase positions. There is no need for confrontations, we must learn to be tolerant,” Ruto said.
