VIDEO: Uhuru Finally Responds to Claims of Falling Economy

  • President Uhuru Kenyatta has dismissed statements questioning the state of the country's economy. Speaking at a church service in Kiambu, Kenyatta assured Kenyans that everything was fine and there was no reason for concern.

    “There is no reason to be concerned I want to assure you everything is fine. It is those who have nothing else to do apart from talking and they have the freedom to speak so let them speak,” he said.

    Kenyatta added that even if people made noise, the country was not in any trouble and that his government would continue working to ensure the country's progress.

    Deputy President William Ruto and Treasury Cabinet Secretary Henry Rotich reiterated the President's sentiments, urging Kenyans not to panic over the supposed alarmist statements made by the Opposition.

    “All of us must be responsible and avoid reckless talk, cooked figures, lies, misinformation about the economy or the welfare of the people. Even as we compete we must be mindful of what we are doing,”said the DP.

    Rotich also said that the challenges faced in regard to the interest rates were being handled, noting that the rates were already dropping.

    This comes after CORD, led by Raila Odinga, revived its Okoa Kenya Campaign, declaring that they would not be stopped from saving Kenya since the country was headed down the drains.

    “Okoa Kenya is not CORD. This is an instrument to save the country from going down the drain,” Odinga reaffirmed.
