Uhuru Kenyatta calls out the Ruto administration for blaming him over the challenges facing the country.
Former President Uhuru Kenyatta has insisted that he is an ardent supporter of Raila Odinga’s Azimio la Umoja Coalition.
During his Sunday speech at a church fundraiser in Mwingi, the former Head of State also made a swipe at the administration of his successor, President William Ruto for blaming him for the challenges facing Kenya.
Without mincing words, Uhuru disclosed that despite not having any input into the present government’s policies, he and a few opposition leaders had been the target of threats and held accountable for its shortcomings.
“I am no longer scared. We have been threatened and told a lot of things. Each time someone fails in their mandate, they blame the previous government. I am used to the blame and life continues,” he told the enthusiastic congregation.
“I am not a conman. I always tell people I am an Azimio member and that is where I belong. My stand has not changed. You should be a politician with a stand who can always be trusted.”
Uhuru, who was accompanied by Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka, implored other leaders to put the needs of Kenyan citizens before their own.
“Let us not allow politics to divide us. Everyone has an opportunity to contribute to the growth of the nation and end poverty,” he stated.
“For servant leadership, we are in the positions that we are in and God has given us those positions not for ourselves but to serve others.”
This comes after a section of leaders allied to the President had accused the previous regime of leaving empty coffers hence making a transition for the current regime difficult, which forced Ruto to remove subsidies on basic products.
