National Assembly Speaker Justin Muturi has denounced President Uhuru Kenyatta’s strong sentiments against his deputy William Ruto, noting that he was late.
Speaking at a rally held in Kapsabet, Nandi County on Sunday, May 1, the speaker argued that the head of state should not complain about the DP as he withdrew from his allies.
He also argued that the Jubilee ruling party has a total of 170 lawmakers in parliament and that the coalition relies directly on them.
He added that the president must continue to consult with lawmakers to ensure his Big 4 agenda is met.
“When the bandits want to finish you off they drive you crazy first, they drive you crazy. I think there is madness because if you are selected for one of the best tickets you can do it is to visualize various talents.
“The Jubilee Party in 2017 won more seats, more than 170. All you had to do was meet these people regularly, consult with them and solve problems. But don’t throw them away and wait for things to go I think it is.” It is too late for people to start complaining, ”he explained.
His comments were echoed by Amani National Congress (ANC) leader Musalia Mudavadi, who responded to the prime minister’s attack on his deputy.
Mudavidi claimed that Independence Day was over and there was little he could do in the remaining 100 days in the house on the mountain.
“Let’s not be fooled, the fact is that the president told us the last time he called the Kenyan cabinet.
“If you do not solve Kenya’s problems, you will not solve them in the next 100 days. Do your best and know that you did what you were going to do,” Mudavadi said.
In his Labor Day speech, Uhuru blamed the DP for running away from work and not being able to provide assistance.
