Deputy President William Ruto has urged ODM leader Raila Odinga and his former National Super Alliance (NASA) principals to stop distracting President Uhuru Kenyatta from delivering on the Big Four agenda.
Speaking during a Sunday service at A.C.K St. Luke’s Wang’uru Church in Kirinyaga County, DP Ruto said the leaders who had abused the agenda of the Handshake between the President and Odinga should now forge their own alliances.
The priority areas under the Big 4 Agenda include food security, universal health care, affordable housing and industrialization which are meant to provide a solid foundation for trade and investment for the country’s growth.
The DP linked his remarks to Friday’s Court of Appeal judgement which upheld the nullification of the Building Bridges Initiative Constitution Amendment.
“I would to ask those leaders who entered the Government as result of the Handshake, that now the clamour of the BBI has been quashed, please allow the President to deliver services for the 45 million Kenyans. There is no point to continue hijacking the President to a level that he can no longer run the government,” he said.
He advised the leaders to go and craft policies that they will present to Kenyans ahead of next year’s general election.
