Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka has thanked former President Uhuru Kenyatta for attending a fundraiser in his home town on Sunday.
Uhuru joined other Azimio leaders at Full Gospel Church in Mwingi for the event.
"It was my honour and joy to worship with former President H.E. Uhuru Kenyatta today at the Full Gospel Church in Mwingi, Kitui County," Kalonzo said.
The former Vice President noted that all the leaders who attended the service, including Uhuru, were inspired by the message of servant leadership.
Uhuru was accompanied by Machakos Governor Wavinya Ndeti, former Kakamega Governor Wycliffe Oparanya, former Defence CS Eugene Wamalwa, among others.
After the church service, the entourage engaged with residents.
Kalonzo noted that the meeting with residents and listening to their views was remarkable.
"Address the cost of living. This is the Azimio La Umoja - One Kenya Alliance Coalition No. 1 irreducible minimum," he said.
In Mwingi, the former Head of State took the opportunity to respond to some of the issues he has been blamed for by the Kenya Kwanza regime.
He said the current government should instead address the problems facing Kenyans instead of heaping everything on the past regime.
“Every time one is unable to do what he should do they blame the past government, [with this trend] even if the wife has refused to give birth it will be blamed on us, but we are used to this,” Uhuru said.
As former Head of State, Uhuru said, all he can do is to pray for Kenya and the unity of the nation.
“I had retired but I am praying for Kenya, I am praying for unity,” he said.
Uhuru’s remark appears to be directed at President William Ruto’s administration which has severally blamed the current economic crisis on the past regime.
Both Ruto and his deputy Rigathi Gachagua have linked Uhuru’s administration to the current high cost of living.
Early this month, Treasury Cabinet Secretary Njuguna Ndung'u blamed the high cost of living on alleged economic blunders of the retired President’s regime.
The Treasury boss spoke when he appeared before the National Dialogue Committee.
“We are paying for the past policy mistakes, that is the truth. We are paying for the mistakes of the past,” Ndung’u said emphatically.
Last week, Transport Cabinet Secretary Kipchumba Murkomen faulted the previous government for the leaking roof at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport.
"When we got to office, we found out that many of our airports are in a pathetic state and JKIA leaking is a result of that," he said.
Uhuru maintained he is still a member of the Azimio La Umoja coalition and is not worried by the ongoing blame game.
“I always tell people that I am a member of Azimio. I am not the type to hop from one party to another because that is what I was taught, to be a person with a stand, not someone who is easily swayed,” he said.
Uhuru urged the leaders to stay the course and be loyal to ensure that the country is in a better place.
