Mudavadi urges respect for independent institutions

Prime Cabinet Secretary Musalia Mudavadi has urged Kenyans to respect the independence of institutions saying they are a pillar to the country’s stability.
Mudavadi called for respect for the rule of law stating that, independent institutions should be allowed to discharge their duties without fear or favour.
“We need to always do what is right and what is fair. We have to maintain the independence of institutions for them to be fair, firm and just in serving the people without fear or favour,” he said.
Mudavadi was speaking during the funeral service of Mama Femina Khayisia, the mother to the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) Renson Mulele Ingonga in Makunga village, Kakamega County.
He said respecting the legal arm of government is paramount as the judicial system plays as the last line of defence for a nation.
“The President himself has pronounced himself on the need of judicial independence and the independence of institutions such as the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions. Politicising such institutions kills their urge to serve the nation well,” he said.
Mudavadi said leaders must show unanimity, deep reconciliation and understanding for them to bind the country together.
“I want Kenyans to respect the role President Ruto is playing in ensuring that the country remains united. You have seen him reconcile from the political stand of the 2022 campaigns and elections and even now he is the one pushing for the candidature of Raila Odinga as the African Union chair. This means he has kept aside political persuasions and wants the country to move forward steadily and united,” said Mudavadi.
“Leaders should stop propagating narratives that don’t help in uniting the people. We need to engage in a conversation that focuses on development and turning the fortunes of Kenyans into a better tomorrow,” he added
Mudavadi eulogised Mama Femina as a matriarch whose service to the society was immeasurable.
He was accompanied by National Assembly Speaker Moses Wetangula, Cabinet Secretaries Moses Kuria and Aisha Jumwa, Governors Fernandes Barasa, Johnson Sakaja, Jonathan Bii and Paul Otuoma among other leaders.
