Safina Party presidential aspirant Jimi Wanjigi has slammed President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto over their continued public spats.
Speaking on Monday, May 2, while attending Eid celebrations in Makina Mosque, Kibra, Wanjigi challenged both the President and the second-in-command to leave office peacefully, arguing that they are responsible for the current economic mess.
Wanjigi told off the two claiming their administration together with the 2018 handshake that brought Former Prime Minister Raila Odinga in the mix, had failed to live to its promise.
“Quit the blame game. You, your deputy, and your handshake partner bear equal responsibility for the state we are in as a nation. It’s time for all of you to leave office peacefully,” he stated.Wanjigi Engages With Kibra Residents After Attending Eid Celebrations 2 May 2022Jimi Wanjigi
Wanjigi who has maintained that he is still in the race to State House, told Uhuru to stop blaming the pandemic and the war in Ukraine and own up for the economic challenges in the country.
On Sunday, May 1, President Uhuru Kenyatta took a swipe at his deputy in a bare knuckle attack, accusing the DP of abandoning his duties and being obsessed with power. In a close rejoinder and without blinking, Ruto told off his boss, stating that he (Uhuru) was to blame for the dysfunctional government.
Appealing to Kenyans to rally behind his vision of a prosperous and working economy for all, Wanjigi, a former confidant of Uhuru and Raila described his presidential bid as a bold opportunity to redeem the country.
He further criticized the government for exclusivity and marginalization, leaving out some communities on the periphery.
“In the spirit of the constitution, all Kenyans are equal not just under the law but also before God,” stated the businessman cum politician, accusing government agencies of profiling a section of Muslims in the issuance of national identification cards.
He urged the youth not to be swayed by voter apathy but instead become politically conscious as politics affects their daily lives.On unemployment that remains a burden, Wanjigi emphasized he will open up the economy and create opportunities for the youths.
Wanjigi dismissed Uhuru, Ruto and Raila saying they have been in power for long enough to change the lives of Kenyans and should therefore exit the stage and allow transformative minds to steer the country.
This comes a day after he dismissed the two-horse race narrative, warning that he would force a run-off in the forthcoming elections.Jimi Wanjigi Shares A Light Moment With Muslim Faithfuls. 2 May 2022Jimi Wanjigi
