Presidential candidates should not address Kenyans in their mother tongue once cleared by the electoral body to vie.
Once you are the President you become a national asset.
Going to your local cocoons to ask for votes in vernacular shows you are not a nationalist but a tribal chief.
MPs should enact an election law requiring presidential candidates to only speak in the official languages — Kiswahili and English — at public functions.
