President Uhuru Kenyatta on Wednesday criticised the politicians who have been blaming his government for the crisis that has recently hit the country.

Uhuru spoke when he officially opened the 45th Kenya Secondary School Heads Association (KESSHA) annual national conference held at the Sheikh Zayed Hall in Mombasa County.

“The biggest problem that we have in this country is that leaders are good at identifying problems, but not able to offer solutions. So if they see an issue in the media, you see them calling for a press conference to lament about prices of maize, fuel prices,” Uhuru said.

Uhuru also asked his critics to stop making noise at their political rallies and instead solve the issues that they think are facing Kenyans.

“You are looking for leadership, why don’t you first try and solve that problem with what you have. You go out there screaming at the top of your voice. Why do you want to be a leader then?”

His comments come a week after the DP and  Kenya Kwanza Alliance team asked the president to stop focusing on succession politics.

The team asked Uhuru to prioritise solving the fuel crisis and the skyrocketing prices of food commodities in the country.

The president has so far declared his full support to the ODM leader Raila Odinga under the Azimio La Umoja One Kenya Coalition Party.

The conference under the theme “Re-examining our future together, a new era of education in Kenya” is being held after a two-year hiatus as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.

He also said that schools will have more than 9 million children learning under the CBC curriculum when they re-open next week.

“…My administration has progressively expanded the education infrastructure to accommodate the growth in enrolment. This includes classrooms, desks and chairs as well as electricity. We are laying a firm foundation, a foundation for our children that will not be shaken."
