‘You Will Reap What You Sow,’ Sifuna Tells Ruto, Gachagua And Kindiki Over Kenyatta Family Row
Written by Inka FM on 27 July 2023
Nairobi Senator Edwin Sifuna has stated that political figures such as Deputy President William Ruto, Deputy President Gachagua, and Interior CS Kindiki should pray to stay in power indefinitely, or face retribution for wrongs done to others.
Senator Sifuna appeared to be referring to recent incidents in which the Kenyatta family was targeted by the State during an interview on Citizen TV’s Daybreak on Thursday.
According to Sifuna, the main agenda of the Kenya Kwanza appears to be revenge and vindictiveness.
“Kindiki, Ruto and Gachagua they best pray to their God that they remain in power forever because the seeds that they have sown will reap what you have sown.” Said Sifuna.
The Nairobi Senator said the current regime appears to be targeting those they perceive as adversaries, and are seeking retribution for perceived past grievances.
According to Sifuna, this approach only perpetuates a vicious cycle of animosity and hostility within the political landscape.
“We had a tradition in this country where we didn’t go after retired President’s. We dint see the sort of vengeance and vindictiveness from a regime that people would be elected and just processed to serve the people. It’s very clear that the main agenda of this government was to visit revenge on the people that they perceive that maybe they treated them badly when they were in power. ” Said Sifuna.
Senator Sifuna used vivid imagery to illustrate his concerns, mentioning headlines such as “ex-CS Kindiki protests police visit to his house” and “Ruto addressing the press at night outside his mother’s house because police have come there.”
He asserted that such headlines could become a reality if the government continues down the path of revenge and vengeance.
“I am not a prophet, but where I close my eyes I can already see that headline. I can already see that headline say ex CS Kindiki protest police visit to his house. I can already see the breaking news item Ruto addressing the press at night outside his mother’s house because police have come there.” Said sifuna.
According to Sifuna, the seeds of hatred, revenge, and vengeance have been sown by those in power, and this has led to an environment where the innocent suffer.
He urged Deputy President Ruto and others in power to listen to the voices of the people and strive for a more united and reconciled nation.
“The people in power do not want to listen to the people who elected them; all thats need to be done is for Ruto to listen to the people. ” Said Sifuna.
