•Both Ruto and his deputy Rigathi Gachagua have linked Uhuru’s administration to the current high cost of living.
•Uhuru on Sunday told the Kenya Kwanza government not to blame his administration for their failures.
Thirdway Alliance party leader Ekuru Aukot has told off the Kenya Kwanza leaders for pointing an accusing finger at former President Uhuru Kenyatta.
On Tuesday, Aukot noted that most leaders faulting Uhuru were part of his Jubilee-led administration.
"With all due respect, Kimani Ichung'wah, our current president, as well as you, were in the last administration. President Ruto deputized Uhuru Kenyatta for ten uninterrupted years!" he said.
Auko was responding to National Assembly Majority leader Kimani Ichung'wah who had noted that time was ripe they have a candid discussion in public with the former Head of State on the economy.
However, Auko said that the current regime should leave Uhuru out of the blame games and work to fix the economy.
"Uhuru is no longer the president. You claimed to have had a plan to fix whatever you now call "Uhuru's mess." Leave the man alone or bring any charges against him," he stated.
The Thirdway Alliance party leader also asked the Kenya Kwanza leaders to cease accusing Uhuru, using it as an excuse not to deliver their manifesto.
Aukot however challenged them that if they couldn't deliver they should resign.
"Stop these excuses because it now exposes you and your ilk there as political con men. Alternatively, apologize to Kenyans and resign so we get a fresh government," he added.
Since they came to power, President William Ruto led administration has on several occasions 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.
Responding to the accusation, Uhuru who was in Mwingi on Sunday told the Kenya Kwanza government not to blame his administration for their failures.
In a rare attack on the current regime, the former Head of State said the current government should 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 really praying for unity,” he said.
