CABINET ministers mentioned in connection with the killing of 42 police officers in Baragoi have been urged to step aside to allow unbiased investigations.
Reformed Catholic Church Mt Kenya Region Bishop Peter Njogu also urged politicians to avoid making reckless statements that may incite ethnic tension ahead of the general election.
Speaking at Nguruki Church in Tharaka-Nithi county on Sunday, Njogu said: "Kenyans need to respect each other's rights at such a time when the nation is headed for the elections. Politicians should be careful of what they say in public."
He also urged Kenyans to desist from acts of committing suicide which have been so rampant and advised them to seek professional advice, share their problems with thirds parties and seek counseling when they are faced with family disputes instead of killing their children and spouses.
