President Uhuru Kenyatta has dared his deputy William Ruto to resign if he is not pleased with the Jubilee Government.
Speaking to journalists at State House, the Head of State called out his deputy for accusing the government of having failed, while taking credit for some developments in the country.
“I have an agenda that I was elected on and that work must continue. It will be hounorable that if you are not happy with it, you would step aside,” President Uhuru said in an indirect attack at his deputy William Ruto.
Uhuru told his deputy William Ruto to make a decision once and for all, and detach himself from the Jubilee government.
“And take your agenda to the people. You can’t say I am not going, and at the same time, I don’t agree. You got to decide, you must be principled,” Uhuru said.
The Head of state told Ruto that Kenya is a democratic nation, and he is free to make his own choices in order to stop confusing people.
“On one hand you are saying we have done… and you want to ride on them. Yet on the other side of your mouth, you are talking another language.”
The President also gave his opinion on the nullified Building Bridges Initiative.
“BBI is not personal for me, I am grateful for the opportunity to serve. Part of my agenda is to bring people together & maintain a peaceful, stable, united country. The courts have been highly misguided on that process, it is not a competition issue,” he said.
On the postponement of the 2022 General Election, President Uhuru said that he has no intention to extend his term in office.
I have not heard talks on election postponement, I am ready for an election at the prescribed time. That’s the schedule I am working towards
