Elders threaten to curse leaders causing disharmony
Pokot elders have threatened to curse leaders who are using the youth to cause chaos in the county ahead of the forthcoming General Election.
The elders said some leaders in the county have sensed defeat and are using youth to create tension in the region and gain their selfish political interests.
This comes three days after KANU supporters held demonstrations against Deputy President William Ruto claiming that he insulted the community.
The leaders, led by Kalenjin Council of Elders, James Lukwo, said they will not accept to see political leaders from the region using youth to cause tension and destroy property.
Lukwo urged the elected leaders from the region to unite and portray a good picture that can be admired by the young generations.
West Pokot Council of Elders chairman, John Mwok, asked the leaders to execute their constitutional mandates instead of engaging in unhealthy politics that will ruin development.
“Peace has been maintained within our borders and right now we want to focus on developing our county. We shall not accept few leaders to create tension,” he said.
Mwok said the community will work with the government of the day to see that the region that was marginalized for a long time has been developed.
The leaders were speaking Tuesday during a meeting in West Pokot.
