Deputy President William Ruto has continued with his criticism to the opposition leaders and the Nasa coalition for interfering with the Jubilee's agendas.

The DP said that since the opposition decides to work along with the ruling party, more projects and plans came to standstill.

“You have brought a huge loss to us. Since the issues of Nasa came to our government, the Jubilee party has been scattered, our Big Four program has stopped. They are now telling us to change the Constitution so that they could share positions and power,” Ruto said.

Speaking on Sunday in Rurii Ward, Nyandarua County, the DP said that his team is well prepared to face Nasa come 2022 in the general election.

He has asked the opposition to stop disturbing the president and give him humble time to work for Kenyans.

During the thanksgiving ceremony to Rurii residents following the by-election which was won by the UDA candidate Francis Muraya, Ruto said that the era of politics based on ethnicity is gone.

Muraya garnered 4,303 votes against the Jubilee aspirant Peter Thinji who got 3,143 votes.

“I want to tell my other friends, that the politics of the past based on tribes came to an end. We now have politics based on economy, on what the citizens who have been forgotten for a long time will get,” Ruto said.

He also applauded his hustler’s team, saying that it is a great team made up of selfless leaders.

“These leaders have not come to talk about positions and leadership, they said that before talking about positions and leadership, let us discuss the welfare of small traders and how we can enable them to come out of poverty. These are selfless leaders and I’m proud to work with them because they have put the people’s interest before their own interests,” Ruto said.

The DP said that the leaders from the Mt. Kenya region told him that they wanted to talk about the economy of the country and the region, not the positions.

He added that his team will not talk about the amendment of the Constitution and creating more positions for the politicians instead of prioritising the common mwananchi.

“The Kenyan politics have changed. It is no longer about positions in leadership, no longer about tribalism but about the economy and the common people and their businesses.”
