Tharaka Nithi Senator Kithure Kindiki has appealed for political tolerance during this electioneering period.

Kindiki took to his social media handles to make the appeal, saying heckling or obstructing opponents' meetings is undemocratic and archaic.

“Heckling or obstructing opponents meetings is undemocratic & archaic,” Kindiki wrote.

Kindiki was referring to the latest incident that happened in Kirinyaga County when a group of rowdy youth tried to disrupt a political rally that Azimio la Umoja One Kenya coalition presidential running mate Martha Karua was addressing.

He asked their supporters to allow Azimio coalition members to campaign freely throughout the entire country, claiming it was too late for them to make any changes even with Karua being named Raila Odinga’s running mate.

“Let those Azimio bands make their pitch freely anywhere in the Country. It will not change much, not even their newly named Running Mate will withstand the UDA/Kenya Kwanza tide,” he said. 

“It is too late, the die is cast.”

Karua has been on a mission in the vote-rich Mt. Kenya region, drumming up support for the Azimio coalition and Raila’s presidential bid.
