Kenya: Kenneth Decries Security Lapse

KENYA National Congress presidential aspirant Peter Kenneth yesterday expressed concern over escalating cases of insecurity in the country. Kenneth said the current state of insecurity in the country is worrying saying that security of Kenyans should be paramount.

Speaking at St Joseph's Catholic Church in Nyamira where he attended mass, Kenneth at the same time faulted tribal alliances saying that they will not help the country develop.

"I am urging Kenyans to elect a leader not based on tribal alliances but on policies. We cannot afford to have leaders who are only dwelling in rhetoric," he said.

He said tribalism is a bad disease which hinders development. If elected president, Kenneth said he will prioritize education, health and infrastructure saying that the country will only develop at the right pace if proper facilities are put in place.
