Oct, 26th 2020 – President Uhuru Kenyatta has dared his Deputy William Ruto to implement his grand promises to Kenyans now, saying he is in government and not held back by anyone.
These remarks were made when the President attended a function at the Presbyterian Church of East Africa (PCEA) at Tumutumu presbytery yesterday.
President Uhuru avoided political topics but went ahead and criticized early 2022 campaigns and promises from those opposed to the BBI. He referred to Ruto and his allies as “Mbaari ya Ngeeka“, which means “Clan of Promises” in Kikuyu.
He said, “Why are they saying they will do things then and not now? Why can’t they do it now and rest that matter? Why can’t we solve our problems now through the BBI.“
The president went ahead to say that most of the challenges being faced by Kenyans both economically and politically would be addressed if the proposed BBI constitutional amendments become law. “Let’s accept the BBI and amend the constitution now. Those who want to go back to the political arena will do so when there is stability. It is the people who will decide who they will elect.“
The head of state had earlier promised to give Presbyterin Church of East Africa sh100 million as contribution towards the completion of the hospital project. the Hospital recently kicked off plans to construct Intensive Care Unit to serve locals who travel long distance seeking health services.
Uhuru said, “It is the PCEA church that helped my father acquire formal education. Most of my family members have done great things in this county in collaboration with the church.“
