The government has been challenged to implement directives by the National Security Advisory Committee (NSAC) without discrimination.

Director of Ahadi Kenya Trust Dr. Stanley Kamau  said all political rallies and early campaigns should be banned across the country.

He noted that there should be no favouritism where some individuals could be allowed to hold meetings while others are denied opportunities to do so.

He spoke on Friday at Kamacharia dispensary where his organization in partnership with Toilet Africa Initiative Foundation commissioned an ablution block for the health facility.

Kamau condemned an incident which happened in Kenol town on Sunday where skirmishes were witnessed leaving two people dead before a church event which was graced by deputy president William Ruto.

“What we witnessed at Kenol should not be repeated.  Instead of using young people to cause chaos, leaders should engage them in meaningful activities which can earn them livelihoods,” noted the anti-jigger campaigner.

He termed the fracas as unfortunate saying politicians just think about themselves and forget social and economic challenges Kenyans are currently experiencing.

“Use of young people to cause chaos is a shame. Many youths in this country are jobless and they should not be misused to propagate divisive politics. Politicians should stop engaging Kenyans in early campaigns without even addressing the difficulties many citizens are going through,” he said.

He continued, “In my charity events, I will not allow any politician to come and campaign in readiness for 2022 elections. I will not tolerate any divisive utterances where Ahadi Trust will be conducting any event.”

Meanwhile the organization announced plans to build modern ablution blocks to public schools in the county with deplorable latrines.

Kamau observed that he will mobilize other well-wishers and build latrines not only for schools but also for needy homes.

“Now that schools are being opened, we will crisscross the county and identify schools with pathetic latrines with the aim of building them new ones. With Covid 19 pandemic, learners need to use better latrines in efforts to boost their personal hygiene.

He called on local leaders to come out and mobilize resources to increase infrastructure in public schools.

“In schools there will be a challenge to adhere to the ministry of health protocols aimed to contain the spread of coronavirus. There is a need for leaders to mobilize resources and help the government in constructing more infrastructure in learning institutions,” added Kamau.

During the occasion, Ahadi Kenya Trust donated foodstuff to elderly people together with persons living with disabilities.
