Deputy President William Ruto has assured kenyans that his Kenya Kwanza Camp is people’s choice ahead of the August 9th vote.
He said for a long time some politicians have thrived on deceiving people saying, “Now, Kenyans are informed and will be voting for a leadership with a development track record,” he noted.
In his tour of Ukambani region where he was accompanied by several leaders allied to his faction from Kitui and Machakos Counties who included MPs Victor Munyaka (Machakos Town), Vincent Musyoka (Mwala), Kithure Kindiki (Tharaka Nithi), Nimrod Mbai (Kitui East), UDA Chairman Johnson Muthama, Kitui Gubernatorial Aspirant Jonathan Mueke host of MCAs and aspirants, the second in command urged kenyans to vote for an inclusive government that is in Kenya Kwanza to solve their economic issues.
Dr Ruto said his competitors were only focused on changing the constitution to create positions for a few leaders while Kenyans face high unemployment rates.
He said: “The greatest political and leadership problem in Kenya is that many leaders are out of touch with reality. They don’t understand the real issues that affect the citizenry and that is why they think constitutional change is a priority.”
Dr Ruto said the Kenya Kwanza Alliance will prioritize changing the economy from trickle down to a bottom-up economic model.
Dr Kindiki warned Kenyans to be wary of politicians who only come to them and their leaders when seeking votes.
He wondered why Mr Odinga abandoned his coalition partners when he went for the handshake after the elections, only to look for them months to the August elections.
The Tharaka Nithi Senator asked Mr Musyoka not to allow Mr. Odinga to deceive him again, adding that he was better off working with Dr. Ruto.
“I am humbly asking my brother Stephen Kalonzo Musyoka to come and work with Dr. Ruto,” said Dr Kindiki.
Mr. Mueke said Ukambani residents will not fall for Mr. Odinga’s lies anymore, faulting him for breaching the 2013 and 2017 coalition agreements.
“Mr. Odinga promised to support Mr Kalonzo in 2017 and 2022 in the 2013 and 2017 coalition agreements respectively but unfortunately he has gone against the agreement,” said Mr Mueke.
Mr. Muthama urged President Uhuru Kenyatta to rise above petty politics and act like a statesman.
Dr. Kindiki said it was embarrassing to see President Kenyatta and Mr. Odinga contradict themselves over impeachment claims.
