Angry Dp Ruto Warn Junior Government Staffs For Staging Violence Against Him In Muranga.

Deputy President William Ruto has urged civil servants not to allow politicians to use them to cause division in the country.
He said it was unfortunate that the police were increasingly being deployed to carry out backward political assignments.
He also urged the youth not to allow politicians to use them in pushing their selfish interests.
“I urge all Government employees to be careful, especially the police and the provisional administrators, not to be used in doing evil things.”
Speaking today during a prayer service at the AIPCA Kenol, Dr Ruto said the Jubilee Party was founded under the leadership of President Uhuru Kenyatta to bring the country together.
He argued that civil servants using their positions to cause violence in the country were embarrassing the President and contradicting fundamental ideals of the party.
“We formed the Jubilee Party so that we could  end the politics of tribalism, hate, division and violence.”
The Deputy President said a section of leaders in the country, used to archaic politics, were uncomfortable with the ongoing conversation on youth empowerment.
He said the leaders had resorted to the use of violence to divert the attention of Kenyans from important issues affecting them.
He said: “All these problems are a creation of those who are opposed to the eradication of poverty.”
Dr Ruto said it was time the needs of ordinary Kenyans were given a priority over the narrow needs of politicians.
“We cannot keep on talking about politicians and their needs; it is time to talk about the empowerment of ordinary Kenyans.”
At the same time over 40 MPs who accompanied him expressed displeasure at the use of violence meted against Faithful of the AICPA Kenol.
They condemned the use of police and paid goons to disrupt church service attended by Dr Ruto.
They further faulted some local leaders for conspiring with security agencies to disrupt the church service.
They were Alice Wahome (Kandara), Ndindi Nyoro (Kiharu), Kipchumba Murkomen (Elgeyo Marakwet), Kimani Ichung’wa (Kikuyu), Rigathi Gachagua (Mathira), Moses Kuria (Gatundu South), James Gakuya (Embakasi North), Didmus Barasa (Kimilili), Nimrod Mbai (Kitui East), Aaron Cheruiyot (Kericho), Nixon Korir (Lang’ata), George Theuri (Embakasi West), Purity Ngirici (Kirinyaga), Faith Gitau (Nyandarua), Cecily Mbarire (Runyenjes), Beatrice Nthaka (Tharaka Nithi), Daniel  Tuitoek (Mogotio) and Rahab Mukami (Nyeri).
Others were Charles Gimose (Hamisi), Jayne Kihara (Naivasha), Joseph Tanui (Kuresoi South), Liza Chelule (Nakuru), Mathias Robi (Kuria West), Johana Ngeno (Emurua Dikirr), Rehema Hassan (Tana River), William Cheptumo (Baringo North), George Gitonga (Tharaka North), Dominic Koskei (Sotik), John Muchiri (Manyatta), Jematia Florence (EALA), Mary Seneta (nominated), Millicent Omanga (nominated), Naomi Wako (nominated), Nasri Ibrahim (nominated), former Senators Boni Khalwale (Kakamega) and Johnstone Muthama (Machakos).
Ms Wahome said: “We condemn in the strongest terms possible, what has happened here today.”
Ms Nasri said it was shocking that police have the courage to tear gas a church during prayers.
Ms Wako said: “I am saddened that the Jubilee Government that we voted for and put some of us to power is now using violence in church.”
On his part, Mr Gachagua asked President Kenyatta not to allow civil servants to tarnish his reputation and legacy.
He said some civil servants were using security forces to advance his political agenda.
“What votes would you get by tear-gassing the church? We want to tell President Kenyatta to reconsider the value some civil servants in his Government,” he said.
Ms Wahome warned that the country was gradually sliding back into the dark days characterised by violence and intimidation.
Mr Barasa called for the prosecution of civil servants involved in Sunday’s showdown at AICPA Kenol.
He said: “There are civil servants who are acting like criminals, anyone who breaks the law should face the law.”
Mr Ichungwa noted that even dictators like Uganda’s Idi Amin did not use violence in church.
Mr Ndindi and Mr Murkomen urged Kenyans not to allow their children to be used by politicians to cause violence.
Mr Murkomen said: “The people paying youth Shs 500 to cause violence are the same ones who have been opposing the empowerment of youth.”D
