Tharaka-Nithi Senator Kithure Kindiki has said that he has forgiven all those who voted him out as the Senate Deputy Speaker in a heated session on Friday.

In Tweet Kindiki who had served in the position of Deputy speaker for the past three years said “I freely forgive those who have crucified me. I will not harbor any hate. I forgive them without conditions. Thank you”.

Speaking during his ouster in the Senate, Kindiki pointed out that the house was focusing on less important issues at a time the Country is going through a lot.

“I bow in shame to note that we are here today for such an elitist triviality powered by petty, divisive and vindictive politics as the country hurts from the lethal combination of a nearly collapsed economy, a ravaging pandemic, floods…”said Kithure Kindiki .
