Politics is not for everyone. Only for those who know how to play the game.Take a look at the top politics headlines this week:

Former Agriculture CS Mwangi Kiunjuri has blamed President Uhuru Kenyatta, his deputy William Ruto and former Prime Minister Raila Odinga for the heated political temperatures in the country.

Kiunjuri also blamed the three for the trading of insults being witnessed in the country adding that they started it all before their supporters followed suit.

Speaking on Friday during the burial of his sister in-law Anne Wairimu at Kamwanya in Mugunda Ward in Kieni constituency, he said on the President’s side, there are people who wake up every day as if they are on the payroll to insult the DP.

The same applies to those who are on the DP’s side who insult the President and have now gone to an extent of insulting former First Lady and President Kenyatta’s mother Mama Ngina Kenyatta.

He also said Raila kept mum when ODM legislators like Embakasi East MP Babu Owino and Homa Bay Woman Representative Gladys Wanga insulted leaders from Jubilee Party.

But he (Raila) is now lamenting that leaders should be respected, the ex-CS said.

President Kenyatta’s followers, he added, followed suit when people like Murathe hurled insults at the DP before the habit spilled to Ruto’s followers.

President Uhuru  told off leaders dragging his mother into politics, after insults from two legislators, allied to his Deputy William Ruto, last week.

President Kenyatta said it was unfortunate that leaders had resorted to insult his mother, Mama Ngina, instead of addressing challenges facing Kenyans.

“I already said that I am focusing on developments and I do not want to engage in politics with anyone. However, those who are looking for me by insulting my mother should stop. They should leave my mother alone and out of politics,” Kenyatta told a roadside meeting in Ruaka on Wednesday.

He was referring to remarks by Emurua Dikirr Member of Parliament Johana Ngeno and his Kapsaret counterpart Oscar Sudi. Ngeno has since faced charges in court on remarks he also made about the controversial Mau Forest Complex.

The two leaders said they were dissatisfied with Kenyatta’s “mistreatment of his Deputy William Ruto,” and demanded respect for him from the President who appear to have sidelined him on their second term in office.

The Deputy President fired back at the leaders, telling them to calm down, saying there is no excuse to insult anyone’s mother.The MPs from Ukambani after police disrupted their meeting at Mathima Market in Kitui South Constituency on September 11, 2020.
