Speaking on TV47 news program on Friday, January 14, Osotsi wondered why the DP always blames the Raila-Uhuru handshake for staled government projects while taking credit for complete projects.
“Whenever he goes to Mt Kenya region where roads have been constructed, he says the roads have been done by him and President Uhuru, But when goes to areas with stoled projects he blames the government for not working,” Osotsi said.
Osotsi challenged the DP to stand firm and own up to the performance of the Jubilee government and to stop using government projects for political gains selectively.
The nominated MP joins a long list of handshake-leaning leaders who have called out on Ruto to blame for any government failure as he is part of it.
Even at some time, the President has called on his deputy to stop taking credit for government success.
Speaking on Friday, February 14, 2021, Uhuru told off Ruto accusing him of doublespeak for selfish gains.
President Uhuru Kenyatta launched a scathing attack on his Deputy William Ruto saying if he has problems with the government he can resign.
“Unakuja unasema kwa mdomo moja serikali ni mbaya alafu kwa mdomo mwingine ati tumefanya kama serikali. Kwani serikali ni ngapi? Si ni moja? Kama unataka uzuri wake ukae nayo, kama unataja ubaya wake toke uwache wengine waendelee,” Uhuru lashed at Ruto then.
Deputy President William Ruto has constantly been blaming the handshake between President Uhuru and ODM leader Raila Odinga for stalled government projects.
Ruto at one point said that BBI made the Jubilee government lose focus of the Big Four Agenda.
