Education Cabinet Secretary Ezekiel Machogu has asked Kenyans to give President William Ruto time to revive the country’s ailing economy.
Machou said President William Ruto promised Kenyans to stabilize the economy and assured them that he would fulfill all his promises even if it would take time.

But one year later, the Head of State has milked Kenyans dry with taxation, the high cost of living which has been brought about by the skyrocketing cost of fuel.
