President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto

Speaking in Kiambu County, Kenyatta said that Opposition leaders had been deceiving Kenyans they would provide an alternative only to spend time creating jobs for themselves. “This was never about the country. It was about giving jobs to themselves instead of the millions of Kenyan who need jobs,” the Head of State said.

The president noted that the Opposition leaders did not respect the constitution by including non-constitutional positions in their lineup.“While they are lying to each other about Prime Minister and Deputy prime Ministers positions which are not in the constitution, we in the Jubilee Party are busy committed to entrenching democracy to develop the country,” he said.Deputy President William Ruto, who had accompanied the Head of State, echoed his sentiments stating that Jubilee was focused on improving the lives of people.Ruto maintained that the Opposition was only focused on dividing positions among themselves.“There is a difference between sharing positions between the elite and creating wealth for our people.“These are people who are only interested in fake stories and lofty positions,” the DP affirmed.

The President and his deputy also thanked Jubilee supporters for turning out in large numbers to vote in the concluded primaries.
