Everything was not working in Uhuru’s last regime.
President Ruto has made a plea of patience citing that everything was not working in Uhuru’s last 5 years in office.
He stated that when he took over everything was almost shutting down, including the economy.
President Ruto said,”When I was taking the oath of office, Kenya’s economy was on its knees; we had heavy debts. The agricultural sector was in ruins; the unga prices had shot up beyond reach for many Kenyans. The security situation in the country was worrying; bodies of people were being retrieved from River Yala almost every other day.”
He urged the opposition to stop blame games and pointing fingers because his manifesto is not yet up and running.
President Ruto stated,”Let these people give us room to change the country. We want to overhaul Kenya, and do away with the foundation of intimidation that they had set up. I want to tell our people not to be confused by what happened in the past. They had five years to rule, but they used the period to ruin Kenya. The police officers were being used to maim people instead of protecting them.”
Echoeing his words was the deputy president, Rigathi Gachagua, who urged the opposition to give them time to run government.
Gachagua said,”I’m asking those in the opposition to go slow on us. Let them perform oversight functions after we are done correcting the wrongs of the previous administration.”
