  • President Uhuru Kenyatta has answered his Deputy, William Ruto, over the recent spate of attacks that the United Democratic Alliance (UDA) launched against him in the party's National Delegates Convention (NDC). 

    The Head of State on Wednesday, March 16, drove himself to Kenyatta Market in a Ksh15 million Mercedes G Wagon before making a stop to address the highly elated crowd. 

    Uhuru began his remarks by listing the achievements made by his government within the area. The Head of State also disregarded the litany of abuses launched against him by Ruto and his brigade.

    "We have made an agreement with your chairman that there are areas that need lights for those working 24 hours without fear. As of tomorrow, I will send people who will look into the problem. So there are those who keep insisting that my government has not delivered on its promises. Is it true or false?" he posed to the crowd who answered in unison that his administration had delivered. 

    He added that the aim of the Azimio la Umoja movement was to unite Kenyans - and was part of his administration's key agenda. 

    "This is what I have been able to deliver and you can see for yourself. That's why we want a successive government that will complete the remaining part left by my administration.

    "Let those who keep on insulting me continue. On our part, we shall join hands with like-minded people in order to ensure that there's unity amongst us. This is why we joined forces with the ODM leader Raila Odinga. Let's leave those who keep on abusing people," he pointed out. 

    President Kenyatta also urged the residents not to allow political inciters to spread tribal hatred during this heated political season. 

    "I urge you not to allow inciters to spread hate, let's find amicable solutions to problems and spread peace instead," Uhuru stated.

    The UDA affiliates had fired salvos at Uhuru - blaming his government for the hard economic times caused by the rising cost of commodities. 

    Other contentious issues that the DP touched on include the ballooning public debt, corruption cases, and independence of the police sector and the Judiciary.
