Reknown hype man Davidson Ngibuini alias DNG has said he is regretting for wasting his time campaigning for President Uhuru Kenyatta and Deputy President William Ruto.
The former gospel artiste said he supported UhuRuto in 2013 under The National Alliance (TNA) banner but regretfully the duo has not delivered as per their manifesto.
“I supported UhuRuto in 2013. I campaigned for them under the TNA banner, ‘I Believe’ but they have failed Kenyans,” he is quoted by The Star Newspaper.
Ngibuini was among the frontrunners of ‘I Believe’ a movement by youth for youth that put forward the notion that Kenya can be better with young people in power.
He said he chose to drum up support for UhuRuto of Jubilee party over other candidates by then including Coalition for Reform and Democracy (CORD) since the duo had the goodwill of the majority of Kenyans at heart.
UhuRuto in 2013 promised free laptops to class one pupils, universal healthcare to all, free education, creation of job opportunities for the youths among others, the promises that DNG say the government has not achieved to his expectations.
“I criticize them today because I expected them to be better. I know what they promised Kenyans. I was there, in a branded T-shirt, hosting the rallies and roadshows and passionately selling their manifesto,” he said.
DNG who is currently involved in sensitizing the youth on leadership and governance issues via his initiative, ‘Who’s Your Leader?’ is yet to declare whether he will venture into the realm of politics.
He also joined other Kenyans calling upon President Uhuru Kenyatta to unlock the five counties that were put under lockdown in efforts to flatten COVID-19 curve.
He is currently running the #UnlockOurCountry initiative that he says has become a voice and a rallying call for every single Kenyan affected by the lockdown.
