'Ruto is not trustworthy,' Uhuru says as he drums up support for Raila in Mombasa
President Uhuru Kenyatta has continued his onslaught against his deputy William Ruto saying he is not trustworthy and cannot deliver his mandate to citizens.
With just four days to next week's elections, President Kenyatta intensified his criticism, this time addressing the role he played during Jubilee's tenure in office.
While commissioning several projects in Makueni and Mombasa counties that include the Kipevu Oil Terminal, Liwatoni fish processing plant, Makupa Bridge and Dongo Kundu Phase Two, the Head of State dismissed the Deputy President as an insincere leader.
“Sipendi udanganyifu na ukiwa huna haki basi wewe sio kiongozi. Kuna wengine walisema shughuli na kazi za serikali ziliisha 2017 na hakuna kitu kimeendelea ati kwa sababu ya handshake...hii barabara ambayo tumekamilisha ilianza 2020…sasa labda ni mimi sijui kuhesabu miaka ama labda 2020 ilikua mbele ya 2014,” he said.
“Nikisema ya kwamba huyo ni muongo ni ukweli ama si ukweli? Nikumuekelea ama ni ukweli? Si kazi imefanyika...imeisha. Na tukimaliza hii mradi Mombasa itakuwa island.”
The President faulted his deputy for deceiving voters that his administration has failed to deliver on its mandate in its second term due to the handshake.
He defended his legacy as he warned Mombasa residents to be wary of the empty election promises by his deputy.
“Na ndiyo nasema kama unaweza danganya kwa kile kitu kidogo kama hii na sasa ukipewa ukubwa utafanya nini? Tunataka watu wanaongoza na ukweli na sio udanganyifu,” he stated.
At the same time, the Commander-in-Chief used the platform to campaign for Azimio la Umoja One Kenya presidential flagbearer Raila Odinga saying he is best placed to succeed him.
“Ninasema anayeweza kutuongoza kwa amani ni Raila Odinga na Martha Karua…Wacha kwanza Mzee atuangalilie hii kazi na labda vijana mtakuja baadaye,” President Kenyatta said.
The President winded up his Mombasa County tour by promising to follow up on the residents' interests even in retirement.
