Addressing the media in Nyamira today,the Nyamira interfaith council chairperson, Dr. Charles Ondiga notes that the country was headed to a wrong direction and unless the President acted fast enough, “We could be headed to the chaos we experienced in the 2007/08 general elections.”

Ondiga said the chaos witnessed in Murang’a County yesterday where pro and anti DP Ruto factions clashed was a sign of bad times a head of the 2022 general elections. 

Two people lost lives in Kenol, Murang’a County when anti Ruto faction tried to block his entourage from accessing the IPCEA church where he would later preside over a church fundraiser. 
He also asked the government not to ‘misuse’ the police to mete violence on innocent Kenyans.

We also condemn the Sunday incident in Kenol IPCEA church in Murang’a County where the police were used to disrupt a church program, I urge the government of Kenya to stop misusing our police offices to cause chaos”, said Ondiga.

Barely a month ago, DP Ruto visited Kisii County’s South Mugirango Constituency residents, a tour where chaos were witnessed in the County’s headquarters between the pro and anti Ruto factions. Scores were injure in the melee.
