Retired President Daniel arap Moi has urged leaders to focus on uniting Kenyans as opposed to making inflammatory talk that could cause divisions ahead of next year’s General Election.

Mr Moi said elected leaders have a job of developing the country but not hurling insults at each other.

“I am asking all leaders to desist from making careless talk and instead engage in actions that help build this nation,” he said.

He spoke at the official dedication of the Kaproret Africa Inland Church (AIC) in Konoin sub-county, Bomet County, where he joined worshippers in celebrating Easter.

He urged Kenyans to emulate the love Jesus Christ had for his fellow men.

The former head of state also called for the construction of more schools observing that the number of pupils was increasing yet there are no enough facilities to accommodate them.

He said: “Leaders should think about constructing more schools for our children. It saddens me when young children fail to go to school due to lack of institutions because without education, they have no future. If you do not listen to my advice you will face problems in the near future,” he added.
