A section of elders from the Luo community say they recognize Kenyatta as the president of Kenya, and have asked him to lead all communities as symbol of unity in the country.
Addressing the press at Kendu Bay, the elders, led by their chairman Nyandiko Ongadi called on the head of state to consider the community while sharing out positions.
Other elders present at the presser included Peter Mbogo from Migori; Phoebe Akinyi from Siaya; and Joram Okola from Homa Bay.
“Kenyatta is the president of everybody in Kenya. I call on him to consider the Luo, like other communities, in jobs and national resources distribution,” said Nyandiko.
They also urged the community to stop branding anyone appointed by President Kenyatta, as traitors.
“Anybody appointed for a state job from this community should take that opportunity to develop Kenyans. We don’t want to hear anybody being referred to as a traitor,” reiterated Joram Okola.
