Deputy president William Ruto has accused president Uhuru Kenyatta of neglecting state projects in Rift valley region on his second term.
Ruto claimed that, the handshake with Raila Odinga and attempt of changing the constitution through the flopped building bridges initiative (BBI) is the main reason behind negligence.
Speaking at Kedowa in Kericho, the second in command pointed out that, stalled multi billion shillings water projects which includes Itare and Bosto in Bomet had been sabotaged by politics after the handshake.
“We had the Big Four agenda when we were elected. It included the creation of employment, boosting agriculture, and the Universal Health Care (UHC). The plan we had initially was sabotaged by the handshake which led to the split of Jubilee.
“Our number one priority next year will be the projects that we had set in our manifesto when we came to power in 2013 and those others anchored in the Big 4 agenda but were not realized.
”You cannot achieve inclusivity by changing the Constitution and creating two or three positions, you can only realize it by building a national political party where all communities, can feel at home,” DP Ruto said, while also hitting out at the Head of State for trying to change the constitution.
The presidential aspirant went ahead and attacked ODM party leader Raila Odinga saying he is the cause of the current turmoil confusion in government.
“He (Raila Odinga) said nobody can stop reggae and forgot there is God in heaven. Despite him wasting our four years with the BBI, we will fulfil the big four agenda next year when am elected. We planned the operations of this government with the President. The rest of them have no idea what our plan is all about. They have no network or plan,” he added. More
