President Kenyatta Tells Dp William Ruto To Quit Government If Unsatisfied

President Uhuru Kenyatta has now told Deputy President William Ruto to resign from the government if he is dissatisfied with its operations and the direction it is moving in.

The President, in a candid chat with media editors at the State House in Nairobi on Monday, left little doubt as to the broken state of his relationship with Ruto; his deputy of 9 years and running mate in two elections.

President Kenyatta told off the DP for criticizing the same government that he serves yet being unwilling to ship out, hence leaving the country in a state of confusion over his stand.

According to the Head of State, it is not right for DP Ruto to choose what government projects to take pride and credit in and which ones to distance himself from.

“I have an agenda that I was elected on, and that work must continue, and it would really be the honorable thing that if you’re not happy with it that you would actually step aside and allow those who want to move on, and then take your agenda to the people. Which is what happens in any normal democracy, because you can’t have your cake and eat it,” he said.

“You can’t, on the one hand, say ‘I’m not going,’ and then at the same time ‘I don’t agree.’ You’ve got to decide because you must be principled in that endeavor. So that you don’t confuse people; on the one hand you want to sing the praises of a government, that you’re saying ‘we have done this and you want to ride on them, but yet on the other side of your mouth you’re talking another language.”

President Kenyatta said the agenda on which he was elected alongside DP Ruto must continue, intimating that no differences between them will come in between that.

He added that despite the flop of the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) at the Court of Appeal, it was just one of his projects and he will now focus on the Big Four agenda in order to move the country forward.

“I will not have deviated from the agenda I have set on course. BBI was just one of them, we still also have the Big Four which we have been consistently following and we will continue with the agenda as we have it,” he stated.
