Lurambi MP Titus Khamala has lashed out at President Uhuru Kenyatta over his fistfights with his deputy William Ruto.

“You cannot bring your war with Ruto to us. There is freedom of worship and movement as enshrined in the Kenyan constitution. Getting permission from an OCS to attend a church service or visit my constituents is untenable and I won’t be part of that arrangement,” said Bishop Khamala.

Bishop Khamala said there misunderstanding is what has led to the closure of churches in various parts of the country, especially where DP Ruto was supposed to preside over fundraisers.

“Uhuru and Ruto are like conjoined twins and forms part of the presidency and therefore the failure of either party, it’s the failure of the entire government. Jubilee government is fighting unto themselves and have failed to deliver the promises they made in the run up to the 2017 general elections,” said Khamala.

The Lurambi MP was speaking at Emasera Primary School when he went to inspect development projects at the institution.

Uhuru should reach to his deputy and put their differences aside. Why is he using the police to disrupt meetings of Ruto in Murang’a, Nyamira and Mumias while he allows Raila Odinga to host delegations at his home in Bondo. Uhuru also hosted a national prayer service at statehouse. The law should not be applied selectively,” Khamala added.

He said in the remaining two years, the President should work with all leaders irrespective of their political affiliations in order to deliver on his Big Four Agenda.

Over the weekend, DP Ruto’s planned meeting was cancelled by the police on grounds that the two meetings at Our Lady of Assumption Catholic Parish in Matungu constituency and St Leo Catholic Church in Mumias East constituency was a threat to national security.

Their pronouncement came moments after a contingent of police officers dispersed supporters of the Deputy President at Kebirigo High School in Nyamira County where he was scheduled to preside over a fundraiser for boda boda operators, just a day after the government introduced stringent measures for holding political rallies.
