Nakuru Deputy Governor David Kones has cautioned against divisive politics, urging local residents to maintain peace and unity.

Kones says some politicians openly sow seeds of discord, a trend he described as a threat to development and national cohesion.

Speaking in Kuresoi South, he noted that although the constitution allows for freedom of expression, incitement should be discouraged.

“Although the constitution provides for freedom of speech and expression, it is wrong to use the freedom to incite Kenyans against each other. Our country is metropolitan and we have a duty of preaching peace,” he said.

Kones urged locals to support and give elected leaders time to fulfil their promises, arguing that it was still too early to engage in 2027 elections.

“Leaders need support and time to fulfill their promises. Criticizing leaders could compromise their performance and the general development. Some individuals are engaging in premature campaigns. This is wrong and should be discouraged by all means,” added Kones.

Area MP Joseph Tonui condemned the violence and destruction of property witnessed during the recent Gen Z demonstrations, saying such vices should be avoided.

Tonui urged the church to pray for peace in the country, adding that the country should not return to violence whatsoever.

Generation Z have stated demonstrations demanding the resignation of MPs and state officers, with opposition MPs backing the push.
