Deputy President Wiliam Ruto has said that Kenya has lost four precious years pushing for the retrogressive constitutional review.
The DP said that BBI was wasting public resources calling on leaders behind it to focus their energies and resources on issues that can improve the lives of millions of Kenyans.
“I want to assure them that the journey to the liberation of this country so that we can first attend and plan for the ordinary citizen, the jobless, people who run small businesses, the many farmers who are struggling; that journey to ensure Kenya is changed and millions of citizens have an opportunity to climb the economic ladder, there is no retreat and there’s no surrender,” Ruto said today during a consultative meeting with grassroots leaders and opinion shapers from Gatanga, Murang’a County at Karen residence, Nairobi.
The DP said that he will not lose momentum or retreat in his quest to unite the country under one political party.
“We are marching forward. We will not lose the momentum. We will not retreat,” Ruto said.
He said that the country requires a stronger plan to improve the lives of millions of ordinary Kenyans so that they can climb up the economic ladder.
“This will only be achieved through the bottom-up economic model,” Ruto said.
He said that he will continue implementing the unity project of transforming Kenya which he started with President Uhuru Kenyatta in 2013.
“The togetherness of the people and its leadership will ease the implementation of the country’s development agenda,” Ruto said.
Ruto called on legislators allied to Tanga tanga to urgently put in place laws, which will unlock the implementation of the Big Four development agenda in the country.
“We are committed to getting Kenya back to serious work by opening opportunities for all and nurturing a pro-business environment that will unleash the power of enterprises,” Ruto said.
“This radical and progressive tack will create jobs and generate income, helping millions of ordinary people ascend the economic ladder.”
MPs present at the meeting were Rigathi Gachagua (Mathira), Kimani Ichung’wah (Kikuyu), George Theuri (Embakasi West), Irungu Kang’ata (Murang’a Senator), Isaac Mwaura and Gatanga parliamentary aspirant Edward Muriu.
