President Uhuru Kenyatta’s public outburst at Kasarani on Sunday is still eliciting reactions across the political divide especially from a section of Mt.Kenya leaders who pay deep allegiance to Deputy President William Ruto.
Controversial Ainabkoi MP William Chepkut has blasted Ruto’s allies for inciting too much effort in defending their boss against Uhuru’s remarks on Sunday where he warned against early politicking.
Chepkut urged that if the Tanga Tanga squad had used joined the president in fighting corruption with the same passion the country would be far by now.
Posting on his Facebook account he wrote,
“If team tanga tanga would have joined the president in fighting the corruption with the same passion with which they defend Ruto manga manga tours, we would be far as a country.”
Politician allied Ruto have publicly defied Uhuru’s outburst with one Kandara MP Alice Wahome claiming that it is impossible for MPS allied to Ruto to stop politicking because the President will not be running come 2022.
Speaking during an interview on Tuesday, the legislator defended the MPs for taking early politics the expense of development claiming that early politicking does not affect the country’s development in any way since MPs do not implement projects.
Alice Wahome: We cannot be told to stop doing politics because the President will not be running come 2022
Zindzi: At the cost of development of this nation?
