Uhuru blasts Raila as a serial liar and has no development agenda for the country
The opposition chief Raila Odinga is hoodwinking Kenyans on corruption in an effort to derail the government’s development agenda, President Uhuru Kenyatta has said.
The President said the opposition leader has no clear agenda for the country, and he has always championed propaganda throughout his political career.
“The problem in this country is bad politics. We are focusing on negative and divisive politics. Recently, when we allocated money to put up a referral hospital in Nanyuki to ease pressure for Nyeri Hospital, the same person said money has been stolen,” said President Kenyatta.
Uhuru said Mr Odinga was a serial liar and warned Kenyans not to readily take in his words.
"When he (Raila) wakes in the morning, he thinks of a lie to tell. Even when he was given a position by Kibaki, he undermined him instead of working. He can never help you," he said at Chaka in Nyeri County.
Deputy President William Ruto said attempts by the opposition to divide central Kenya would fail and urged residents to re-elect President Kenyatta during next year's elections.
"He talked about Eurobond. It turned out to be false. Now he has come up with apathy talk to repress your votes. Do not fall for that propaganda," said Mr Ruto, who is accompanying the President on his tour of central Kenya.
Uhuru said Raila started spreading politics of hatred, which ultimately ruined the prosperity being witnessed in 2007.
The Head of State said the corruption scandals were narratives aimed at derailing Jubilee’s economic programme.
He pointed out that the Jubilee government is putting up systems which will spur economic growth, but the opposition chief is not happy about that.
DP Ruto dismissed the political propaganda against the Government, saying Jubilee won’t be distracted from its agenda to serve the people of Kenya.
‘’We will continue building roads, providing water, installing electricity and improving hospitals and medical care,’’ he said.
