Uhuru speaks on his relationship with Raila Odinga
President Uhuru Kenyatta has revealed unknown details to the public about ODM leader Raila Odinga...
Speaking in an interview on Monday with Citizen TV's Lulu Hassan and Kanze Dena, Kenyatta stated that he did not have enemies including Odinga.
“I do not hate anyone. I refer to him as ndugu yangu (my brother) each time we meet. Political differences is not enmity.
“We are friends. I consider him my friend unless he wants to say he is not,” the President stated.
The Opposition leader has been a fierce critic of Kenyatta and his administration stating that he had not achieved the promises they made in 2013.
Kenyatta and the opposition leader have clashed on numerous occasions and have come to be known as sworn enemies by the public.
The Head of state also distanced himself from the ongoing wrangles pitting Nairobi gubernatorial aspirants Senator Mike Sonko and Peter Kenneth,
“I cannot transcend on Kenyans’ rights to elect their leaders, especially in the Jubilee Party. It is upon the electorates to choose their preferred leaders.
“I want our party to win the Nairobi gubernatorial race but I cannot say who will vie and who will not. No. Kenyans will choose,” Kenyatta affirmed.
The president spoke on a wide range of issues and highlighted some of the developmental projects Jubilee had initiated.
Kenyatta stated that he had doubled power connectivity that existed in the country before 2013 after he assumed office.
“With electricity young men in the villages could be welding doors and windows for a local school. That is what we are targeting,” the President said.
