President Uhuru Kenyatta's cousin Kung'u Muigai on Tuesday led a group of elders to Deputy President William Ruto's official residence in Karen.

Among the 25 elders was Building Bridges Initiative steering committee member Major John Seii.

"Met the leadership of the National Council of Elders headed by its patron Captain Kung’u Muigai, chairman Phares Rutere and the Nationhood Sector Principal Administrative Secretary Michael Ndung’u, Karen, Nairobi County.

"Elders must take the lead to preach unity and end ethnicity in our country. They must mentor the youth to be responsible leaders, moderate our politics to be less confrontational but more issue-based & encourage the establishment of national rather than tribal political parties.

"That way, we stand to have a meaningful development that will make Kenya more peaceful," DP Ruto posted on Twitter.

Two weeks ago, Muigai faulted Kikuyu 'elders' who visited ODM leader Raila Odinga's home in Bondo.
