Water Cabinet Secretary Mr. Eugene Wamalwa has called on politicians to honor the late Interior CS Major General (Rtd) Joseph Nkaissery by desisting from politics of hatred.
The greatest tribute we can pay to the late Joseph Nkaissery is to desist from politics of hate of which he was determined to fight, said the CS in Kitale town Monday.
Eulogizing the late Nkaissery, Wamalwa said it was a big blow to the Nation and President Uhuru Kenyatta for losing such a determined leader on whom the president relied fully for the security of the country.
He said that the late Nkaissery was preaching peace and wanted the nation to be united and politicians to stop divisive politics.
To honor him let us tame our tongues between now and August 8, let us understand that beyond the Election day we will still have a country to take good care of, he said.
Nkaisery passed away on Saturday just a day after attending the 15th Annual National prayer meeting at Uhuru Park on Friday.
Wamalwa also criticized the opposition leaders led by National Super Alliance (NASA) flag bearer Raila Odinga for showing little interest in having a united prayer moment by choosing to hold a parallel prayer meeting at Kamukunji.
He said that the prayer meeting was the best opportunity for all leaders from all political divides to meet and pray together for the country.
It was such an opportunity for the leaders to be seen together, to pray together since a nation that prays together stays together, he added.
The CS said that it was the best opportunity for the leaders to tell Kenyans that they will accept the outcome of the elections and that they will be on the forefront to ensure they maintain peace.
We have fewer days remaining to the general elections, let us leaders continue praying together, he added.
