Politics took the center stage during the 2023 Labor Day celebrations when Manyatta MP Gitonga Mukunji asked the former President Uhuru Kenyatta to exit the political arena and allow the current President William Ruto to lead the country.
The law maker said Kenyatta should follow the footsteps of his predecessors who peacefully handed power to the next administration and stopped involving themselves with the country’s politics.
“Your father left the country to Moi, Moi left it to Kibaki and then Kibaki left it to you. I urge you to leave the country to Ruto respectfully and peacefully” Gitonga said.
