DP Gachagua on President Ruto’s foreign trips.
DP Gachagua on President Ruto’s foreign trips; Speaking to the media, the second in command, defended President Ruto’s multiple foreign trips.
This comes after the citizens complained that the trips are costing taxpayers’ money but they are not being accounted for.
He highlighted that the Kenyan media only makes objective conclusions by weighing on the gains made against what has been spent by the president.
He stated,”Yesterday I found a headline saying for the time you have been in office you have spent three times what your predecessor spent on local and international travel but these people were not honest enough and objective to outline the level of activities you have carried out in that time because cost is determined by the level of activity.”
“I invite the media to find out when the president has traveled and to which country, what is the gain for the country? It is only then you can make an objective analysis,” he added.
He further stated that most successful countries have adapted the hands-on approach to leadership and that is exactly what president Ruto has done.
Dp Gachagua stated,”Had they done some research, they’d come to the conclusion that all successful institutions are led by CEOs who practice hands-on style of management. This was stuck for many years and through prudent commitment and focused leadership you gave deadlines, encouraged everyone to work and that is why we have this agreement today.”
