Uhuru Kenyatta has again fired back at Deputy President William Ruto and his team, saying his unbridled ambitions are to blame for his downfall.
The president was speaking during Jubillee’s National Delegates Convention at KICC where Raila Odinga and OKA team were in attendance.
He said the Azimio-One Kenya coalition will build a mega-machine that will crash the crooks.
“Do you support me to work with these elders to fight those wakora’?” Uhuru said at KICC.
The president told Ruto that he will write history as the first country where a government united with the opposition.
“I heard one person saying that there is nowhere in the world where a government unites with and supports the opposition,” Uhuru said.
He went on: “Kenya will be the example, we are mature enough to distinguish between politics and the needs of the people,.’
The president said ODM boss Raila Odinga and other opposition leaders had helped him to extinguish the fire in Jubilee.
“If they helped me extinguish the fire when my house caught fire. I say thank you for helping me put out the fire,” Uhuru said.
He went on: “When you have someone whom you shared responsibly almost down the middle but he absconds, and you have someone who comes and helps you when your house is on fire, who is a better neighbor?’ Uhuru posed.
Uhuru Kenyatta plea to Raila
Uhuru Kenyatta pleaded with Raila to help Tuju after he resigned as Jubilee Sec-General.
Making his address after presiding over the convention, President Uhuru expressed gratitude for Tuju’s services and offered him a position at the party’s powerful National Executive Committee (NEC).
“I wholeheartedly thank Tuju for his services as secretary-general since the party’s inception. I plead with him to accept a position at NEC, even if he has resigned as the party’s secretary-general. He is a hardworking and peace-loving Kenyan,” said President Uhuru.
President Uhuru pleaded with ODM leader Raila Odinga – who was in attendance with Mombasa Governor Ali Hassan Joho and OKA’s Kalonzo Musyoka (Wiper), Gideon Moi (Kanu) and UDP’s Cyrus Jirongo, to assist Tuju should he harbour other ambitions.
“Baba, Tuju is our man in Jubilee, if there is a position he is seeking, [even you, ODM] help him out. Help him, let him not be in the cold. You, Joho, I’ve delegated that responsibility to you,” said Uhuru to a nodding Odinga, who had minutes earlier been formally approved by ODM for the presidency in the August 9 General Election.
