President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy, William Ruto, have reassured the country that they are committed to uniting Kenyans amid claims that there are factions threatening to tear Jubilee Party apart over 2022 politics.

Speaking on Sunday at Our Lady of the Rosary Catholic Parish, Ridgeways in Kiambu County, President Kenyatta said the country’s attainment of its development aspirations depends on peace and unity.

“There is nothing we cannot achieve…because we are committed to bringing our people together,” Mr Kenyatta said.

The Head of State urged the church’s peace ambassadors to spread their efforts countrywide.

“Where people sow hatred, you shall sow love. Where people sow division, you shall sow unity because at the end of the day that is what shall ensure we take our country forward,” Mr Kenyatta said.

In his sermon, Cardinal Njue asked Christians to be instruments of peace in the family, community and country.

Deputy President William Ruto and former First Lady Mama Ngina Kenyatta also attended the Sunday mass which was conducted by Cardinal John Njue and also marked the official inauguration of the parish.

Speaking later at the at Joy Celebrations Centre for another church service, DP Ruto dismissed claims that there are divisions within the ruling party, saying all the members are fully behind Mr Kenyatta.

“Our main focus now is achieving the Big Four agenda,” Mr Ruto said.
