Only Kenyans can rate my performance in government » Capital News
KISII, Kenya May 4 – Vice President William Ruto says only Kenyans can assess his work.
He said it was “very clear” where the country was before Jubilee took power in 2013 and now.
“It is also in the public domain what we achieved for the people in our first term,” he said, in a growing feud with his boss, President Uhuru Kenyatta, who asked him for the last week to resign for “not helping me when I needed it”. him.”
Dr. Ruto noted that between 2013 and 2017, the Jubilee government invested heavily in water, electricity, education, health, agriculture, among other sectors that transformed many lives.
He said the next phase after the 2017 election was the implementation of the Big Four agenda.
“However, it fell apart because of the handshake. Most of the programs aimed at transforming Kenya have stalled,” he explained during the Kisii County Economic Forum held today in Bonchari.
He was accompanied by Musalia Mudavadi (ANC), Moses Wetang’ula (Ford Kenya), UDA gubernatorial candidate Ezekiel Machogu, MPs Silvanus Osoro (South Mugirango), Shadrack Mose (Kitutu Masaba), Alfah Miruka (Bomachoge Chache), Vincent Kimose (West Mugirango) and Joash Nyamoko (North Mugirango).
The Vice President noted that it was now up to Kenyans to judge who had worked for them.
He regretted that more than four years have been wasted on projects that do not benefit the country, such as the Building Bridges Initiative.
“All is not lost. We will bring Kenya back to the other side of growth after the August elections,” he added.
Dr Ruto called on ODM chief Raila Odinga to take responsibility for actively engaging in the collapse of the Big Four agenda.
He said it was ironic that those who led the transformation of the country are now promising to rebuild Kenya.
“So how is he (Raila) going to take Kenya forward?” He posed.
Mr. Mudavadi said only Kenya Kwanza would change Kenya.
“It is our agenda to empower every ordinary so that we can make Kenya a more equal country,” Mr. Wetang’ula explained.
Kenya Kwanza leaders also held public rallies in Ekerenyo in northern Mugirango and Rigoma in Kitutu Masaba.
