Businessman Peter Kuguru of Kuguru Foods has condemned political violence witnessed during political rallies across the Country.
In a statement sent to newsrooms, Kuguru said politicians who cause violence should be held responsible.
Kiguru said the business community is displeased with the recent deaths witnessed because of political rallies in the country.
In October 2020, two people died after chaos erupted at Kenol town in Murang’a county after two opposing groups allied to the Jubilee Party clashed over a visit by Deputy President William Ruto.
Several other incidents were reported across the Country.
“While it is dismaying that no one else seems to be speaking about it, it is unfortunate that the political class traverses vote-rich regions, conduct their events and leave death and destruction in their wake. Politicians should be held accountable for any fracas witnessed linked to their activities in an area.,” he said.
Kuguru said that anyone is welcome to sell their political agenda to Mt Kenya as a region.
“What I am opposed to is the seeming lack of concern by politicians who visit an area, campaign, dish out money without a plan, and leave people dead. That is unacceptable” Kiguru said.
He called on the IEBC, Office of the Registrar of Political Parties, political actors themselves and other relevant stakeholders to come together and agree on a way forward to curb unnecessary loss of life and property.
