Feb, 15th 2021 – Deputy President William Ruto, says he is the perfect fit to succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta and further the best candidate to complete the foundation they laid in 2013.
Ruto, whose relationship with President Uhuru Kenyatta appears to be irretrievably broken took it upon himself to talk up his chances of succeeding his boss
Ruto declared that the people are worried on there is no one to take over from the president after his term is ended.
While attending a service at the Africa Inland Church in Kinangop, Ruto questioned the credibility of Raila Odinga, Amani Musalia Mudavadi, Kalonzo Musyoka, and Baringo Senator Gideon Moi indicating that they had not shared their plans for the country but we’re riding on the president’s support.
His major question was on finding someone who has no clue on how the plans were made. His question to the people was that, “Do you want someone who will come in and get taught or someone who will continue from where things have been left off.”
Former Prime Minister and ODM Leader Raila Odinga on the other hand criticized Ruto saying that he is criticizing the government from within, which should not be the case. He said, “You cannot claim to be with us while at the same time claim this government has not done anything.”
Ruto however said that he will continue to implement the projects promised to Kenyans. He added that it is the only way to ensure the the Jubilee Administration lives up to its promises.
He cited Infrastructure, education programs, and electricity as some of the development initiatives promised by the government since 2013. Ruto said, “The government led by President Uhuru Kenyatta has done a lot. Kenyans are smart, no one can lie to them.”
He assured Kenyans that the programs are still on track and will ensure that the projects are implemented even after 2022 when President Kenyatta retires. He said, “I assure you that the programs that we began with President Kenyatta will not stall.”
