Tuesday, February 8, 2022 – President Uhuru Kenyatta took a dig at Deputy President William Ruto over what he described as bad politics of spreading lies and absenteeism at work.
Speaking in Mombasa yesterday during the launch of the Universal Health Coverage (UHC) Conference, Uhuru described Ruto as a ghost worker as he boasted of the achievement his administration had made since assuming power in 2013.
He blasted the DP for taking to the streets to claim ownership of some government projects while at the same time criticizing the State’s track record.
“Those who are peddling lies can’t change our achievements. Let us remain focused. If there are things that are not right, that is why you are here to help us.”
“We have seen those who are just saying they did this and at the same time claiming that the government has done nothing.
“Work is not done on top of cars, it is done in offices and hospitals. The nurse does not peddle lies but goes to wards and theatres.
“In this Kenya, we see a lot,” he explained.
The president was responding to a speech made by Ruto in Kirinyaga where he went ham on him and his projects.
“My friend Uhuru Kenyatta, spare us the kitendawili experiment, spare us your project, the country of Kenya cannot afford the kitendawili project. “We have supported you for many years but we are telling you this country will not accept your project which is meant to destroy this country,” the DP stated.
