Labour Day Celebrations; President Uhuru Kenyatta has hit out at his deputy William Ruto for not helping him deliver his manifesto to Kenyans.
President Kenyatta castigated Dp Ruto for going around politicking while at the same time he acknowledge the support og ODM leader Raila Odinga.
He questioned where Ruto has been to help him handle the crisis adding he should have resigned so that he could get someone else to help him.
“Instead of coming to help me, you are in the market with insults and calling yourself a leader of higher rank. You should have let me look for another person who could have helped me,” he said.
The President took on his deputy William Ruto head-on over the rising cost of living in the country.
He blasted his deputy for faulting him over the rising cost of living yet he is not the cause.
The President said the DP and his allies have been misleading the nation about the true state of affairs regarding the economy.
Speaking during the Labour Day celebrations, Uhuru blamed the Covid-19 pandemic and the Russia-Ukraine war for the rising cost of living.
“It is not Kenyans who brought the Covid 19 pandemic that cost loss of lives and jobs. But even as we try to bring back order and revive the economy, others have begun wars that are completely out of nowhere.”
“Instead of leaders coming together to sort the matter to see how we can solve the matter, they have begun inciting citizens. Am I the person who brought Covid? Did I cause the Russia-Ukraine war?”
The President thanked Raila Oding for coming into his help in running the government.
“Na ndio mimi nashukuru huyo mzee hata kama alikua na mambo yake alikuja kunisaidia (I thank him for coming to help me yet he had other things to do),” he added.
