Some of President William Ruto’s supporters have now expressed their dissatisfaction with the way the Kenya Kwanza government is being run.
The majority of the supporters from the Rift Valley region, a region perceived to be President William Ruto’s stronghold have criticized the Head of State for what they say is raising the cost of living contrary to his promise.
In his 2022 presidential campaign, the then Kenya Kwanza presidential candidate promised to bring the cost of living, especially the price of essential products into the country if he were to succeed Uhuru Kenyatta.
This among other promises made the group convince the youths to vote for Ruto over Azimio La Umoja One Kenya Coalition Party Leader Raila Odinga.
However, in a video going rounds on social media platforms, some of President William Ruto’s supporters are now regretting why they not only voted for him but also convinced other voters to vote for Ruto.
“If we had known…We told the youth to vote for this young man, leaving the old one, but little did we know that we were digging our own grave,” lamented one of the men.
Some of them stated that they would have chosen to live under late presidents Daniel Toroitich Arap Moi and Mwai Kibaki instead of Ruto.
Their regrets come just a day after the Energy and Petroleum Regulatory Authority (EPRA) announced a rise in fuel prices.
The energy regulator last week announced a KSh 5.72 increase per litre on Super Petrol to hit KSh 217.
In its latest review, Diesel rose by KSh 4.48 a litre while Kerosene rose by KSh 2.45 a litre to retail at KSh 205.47 and KSh 205.06 respectively, making it the highest in Kenya’s history.
