Kericho Senator Aaron Cheruiyot has taken a swipe at journalists over the coverage of the supposed rift in the Kenya Kwanza regime.

Addressing a crowd, the senator asked journalists in the country to refrain from exaggerating assumptions on the claimed fallout between President William Ruto and his deputy Rigathi Gachagua.

Cheruiyot particularly pointed out that a section of the media had reported that the United Democratic Alliance (UDA) was planning a crisis meeting after speculations were rife over the fallout between the two leaders.

He, however, indicated that the purpose of their meeting was to discuss the progress of the ruling party's grassroots elections already conducted in five counties.

"Ndugu zetu wa gazeti, tafadhalini please, muache kupenda fitina, nyi pia mnachochea hii maneno ambayo inaendelea. Kama leo naona hii mkutano ambayo naibu wa rais anakimbia na mimi ntakua pale, hii ni mkutano ambayo tulipanga zamani, tunaenda kupewa updates ya uchaguzi ya UDA ambao imefanyika katika kaunti tano, nyinyi mnasema ati ni crisis meeting," he said.

The senator maintained that journalists should uphold truth and refrain from fanning issues to further cause problems within the coalition.

He emphasised that the regime was cemented on prayers and called on Kenyans to pray for the president and his deputy for the government to rise and serve its people accordingly.

"Wacheni kua watu wa kuchochea, siku ingine pia, muongee mambo ya amani, si vita pekee yake ikue katika taifa yetu, ata hio meetin rais alijua ilikua ikue jumatatu, lakini ime airishwa kwa sababu hio mkutano ilikua ya Finance Bill. Wanahabari wetu muache kua watu wa kuchochea, mjue ya kwamba hii nyumba yetu ya Kenya Kwanza iliekwa kupitia maombi," he added.
