Kitui Governor Charity Ngilu has urged Deputy President (DP) William Ruto and opposition leader Raila Odinga to tone down.

Ngilu says the two leaders must leave graft matters to agencies mandated to do investigations.

Speaking to journalists in Kitui Town on Friday, Governor Ngilu noted that Ruto and Raila's arguements on who is involved in the alleged graft is not helping anyone.

According to Ngilu, continued accusations and counter accusations between Raila and DP Ruto is not healthy.

She argues that the two leaders are unknowingly boiling political temperatures in the country.

The Kitui county boss said it improper for the two leaders to keep on commenting on the ongoing investigation into graft.

“I think the two leaders  (Ruto and Raila) should allow the DCI to do his work instead of publicly engaging each other on who is involved or not involved," she said.

Governor Ngilu noted that the public jibes between Ruto and Raila is getting ugly.

The DP and the opposition leader continues to trade barbs over the Sh 21 Billion dams investigations being carried out by the DCI.

On Thursday, Makueni governor Kivutha Kibwana urged the two leaders (Ruto and Raila) to unite for the interest of peace.

He said that Kenyans would like to see DP Ruto and Raila shake hands.

The Makueni county boss warned that the country’s peace  is at stake if DP Ruto and Raila continue to trade ugly barbs.
