A section of youth in Muranga have held demonstrations condemning the Sunday skirmishes in Kenol that claimed two lives.
The youth under Muranga Peace and Governance Forum have called for sobriety, peace and tolerance amongst politicians while at the same time said no to bloody money which are taken to churches while leaving scores of people injured and deaths amongst the youth.
While issuing a 14-day ultimatum to the investigative agencies to conclude and make public their findings in the ongoing investigations, the youth pleaded with politicians to say no to violence and youth involvement in chaos and anarchy by the political class.
“We urge politicians to stop misusing youth to propagate their political agenda and narratives, its sad that that some of us are losing lives leaving their to suffer while the rich enjoy in high end hotels,” the youth drawn from different parts of Mt Kenya region counties said.
The forum which included Mungai solidarity forum and supported by about 5 Muranga MCAs also wanted politicians to stop the bloody events and pleaded with them to stop the Hustler Vs the Dynasty narratives that could plunge the country into a State of lawlessness.
“We say no to bloody money taken to churches only for some families to be left mourning the deaths, we have given the Investigative agencies 14 days to conclude investigations and to make public their findings,” Ms Wambui Njoki an MCA and an activist said.
“The hustler verses Dynasty narrative creates a wedge between the rich and the poor and may lead to a very serious clash between the two which is bad for our economy,” MCA Parsy Njeri added.
