A group of Kalenjin leaders are calling for unity among the kalenjin community ahead of the 2022 general election.
Led by Cherangany MP Joshua Kutuny, former Cabinet Ministers Henry Kosgei, Franklin Bett, AIC Bishop Rev Silas Yego and Chairman of the Kalenjin elders Major Rtd John Seii, the leaders expressed fears of what they termed as disunity within the Kalenjin nation.
At a meeting held at the Biblica Guest House, Nairobi, the leaders revealed that their discussions centred on issues of concern to the Rift Valley and the Kalenjin nation, they however remained scanty on the details about their meeting.
“This is just but the first discussions. We’ve got a lot of other things that are going to come up. We are just laying foundation, we are just putting up structure of engagement going forward on issues of common concern affecting our nation and our community. There will be many meetings coming,” said Kutuny.
The Cherangany lawmaker, Kutuny had earlier warned of an impending revolution against the political class in the Kalenjin nation that he said needed averting.
“My advice to our Kalenjin MPs, Governors, Women Reps, Senators and MCAs is to rethink on the style of politics. They will be in for a rude shock,” he said.
Kutuny said that as they rallied behind Deputy President William Ruto ahead of 2022, the leaders should go the extra mile and unite, then bring people together to speak in one voice.
