President Kenyatta has insisted that the hustlers vs dynasties narrative being peddled by Deputy President William Ruto is dangerous.
Kenyatta, who spoke during an interview aired on Kikuyu FM stations on Monday, warned that the talk may cause incitement and brew hatred in the country.
“If their logic is to say that because my father was the president, and I am the president today, then we are called dynasties, then in equal measure if your father was a doctor, and you are a doctor, then you have no right to take care of patients,” Uhuru said,
He added: If that is the logic, then if you are not ashamed of telling us that this and that family has ruled, why not say this and that community have ruled, and it is time for another? That issue seemed to have rubbed them the wrong way, that is why the whole week they have been bitter…it doesn’t have to be hustlers or dynasties, but my point is, don’t incite people.”
He beseeched the people of Mt. Kenya to reject attempts by a section of politicians to divide the country along class lines.
"I am begging you our people, do not be incited by people just because of a few coins. I am a student of history. If you don't know where you came from, you can't know where you are going,” he said.
Kenyatta warned that he would not allow political leaders to incite Kenyans against each other.
“I am not worried about their insults, let them continue, but they should not try to incite people to chaos or stop ongoing projects if they do, just like I said the other day, they will know a lion that is rained on is not a cat,” he warned.
