President Uhuru Kenyatta calls for political sobriety


President Uhuru Kenyatta has called for political sobriety and urged leaders to be at the forefront in upholding peace.

Speaking during the final mass of the late of Eldoret Bishop Cornelius Korir, the Head of State also called on politicians to resolve their differences through constitutionally acceptable means instead of setting Kenyans against one another.

He said Kenya was a democratic country which has constitutional avenues – Parliament and the courts – of resolving political disputes.

The President said he has proved his respect for the Constitutional processes by accepting the nullification of his clear victory in the August 8 General Election.

“Let us resolve our problems through our Constitution and let us compete in peace,” said the President.

President Kenyatta eulogized Bishop Korir as an icon and his death a big blow to the nation, saying Kenya has lost a great leader who championed for unity, cohesion and reconciliation.

Bishop Cornelius Korir was laid to rest at the Sacred Heart Church in Eldoret, Uasin Gishu County.
