The National Assembly Speaker, the Rt. Hon. Moses Wetang’ula has asked politicians across the country to desist from retrogressive politics that will only continue hurting the economic and frustrating the common mwananchi.

While addressing a congregation during a Sunday Mass Service at Christ the King Catholic Church in Kanduyi, Speaker Wetang’ula said that the country had long moved on after last year’s General Elections noting that there was no need for some leaders trying to engage the nation in planned protests.

“I would like to call upon Members of Parliament drawn from both the Azimio and the Kenya Kwanza teams to desist from retrogressive politics and allow Kenyans to move forward as they struggle to cope with the daily life challenges and struggles,” he said.

The Speaker said that Kenyans were enjoying a relatively calm political environment emphasizing that there was no need to trigger political temperatures in the country.

“There are many problems bedevilling Kenyans from school fees, to putting food on the table and these issues of bringing protests across the country over bygones are unhealthy and uncalled for, “he said.

“I want to tell our politicians to go slow as Kenya Kwanza government works to make life better and more affordable,” he added.

Hon. Wetang’ula praised the Christian faithful for their continuous prayers and love which he said enabled him to ascend to the position of Speaker of the National Assembly.

“As you go back home keep praying for our Nation to have peace and prosperity since our Lord Jesus Christ said that whatever can’t be done in a man’s eye can be done in God’s eye,” he added.

Today I come before you on behalf of myself, my family and my fellow leaders thanking you for your continuous support, strength and prayers that keep me going.

The Speaker said that President William Ruto had promised to hold one of the three National Government functions of Mashujaa, Madaraka or Jamhuri Day next year in Bungoma as an honour to the overwhelming votes they gave to Kenya Kwanza Government.
