DP William Ruto speaks on creation of Prime Minister’s Position

This comes after Jubilee disowned the Bill

“As leaders we should be fair to the people of Kenya who campaigned and voted for us by serving them. It’s not time for us to go round talking about changing the Constitution to create some positions and attain our selfish interests at the expense of service delivery,” said Ruto.

Ruto said it was unfair for politicians to subject Kenyans to 2022 politics when the country has not yet recovered from the prolonged 2017 politics.

He warned legislators elected on the Jubilee Party to avoid politics and be in the frontline in ensuring the Jubilee government delivers on its promise to Kenyans.

“Leaders elected in the Jubilee Party should know that we have a manifesto that needs to be effected as we promised the people during last campaigns and we must deliver on our agenda,” he said.

His sentiments come days after Jubilee party through the National Assembly majority leader Aden Duale refuted claims that the Bill was sponsored by their party so as to create a position for President Uhuru Kenyatta to serve as Prime Minister after his second term in office comes to an end in 2022.

The Bill was sponsored by Tiaty MP William Kamket who was elected on a KANU party ticket which is an affiliate of the Jubilee Party.
