The Kenya Kwanza brigade has called on President Uhuru Kenyatta to concentrate on lowering the cost of living and not election campaigns.
Speaking in various stop overs, the Kenya Kwanza leaders, led by Deputy President William Ruto, Amani National Congress leader Musalia Mudavadi and Ford Kenya’s Moses Wetangula, regretted that while many Kenyans are struggling with the high cost of living, the President was busy campaigning for Raila Odinga.
Mudavadi called on the President to stop playing politics with the lives of Kenyans and embark on working on policies that would help lower the cost of basic household commodities.
“Life continues to be expensive for Kenyans and instead of the President and his Cabinet working on policies to lower the cost of basic goods, he is busy on the campaign trail, looking votes for someone who has helped him kill the economy,” said the Amani leader.

Mudavadi noted that the ‘handshake’ government of President Uhuru and ODM leader Raila Odinga has been one of corruption, increased public debt, increased taxes and oppressing the poor with increased cost of basic goods.
The leaders accompanied by MPs Susan Kihika, Rigathi Gachagua, Kimani Ngunjiri, Kimani Ichungwa and a host of aspirants made stop overs in Lanet, Maili Sita, Maili Kumi, Ndondori and Gachura accused the President of being responsible for the failed economy.
The deputy president called on his boss to leave him alone to campaign in peace, now that he has deserted him despite his unwavering support in both 2013 and 2017 elections.
Ruto accused Uhuru of dumping him at a time when he needed his reciprocity the most, noting that the best the President could do is to let him fight it out with Raila instead of him (Uhuru) campaigning against him.

“I stood with the President when Raila was his biggest competitor. I went to every part of the country looking votes for him and we together formed the Jubilee government. When Uhuru wanted a man to stand by him, I was there. The person he is campaigning for now, was his political enemy. All I am asking the President is to let me meet with Raila as my competitor and not him,” said Ruto.
Ruto took a swipe at Raila accusing him of having no development record from the many years he has served in different capacities in government, adding that the ‘handshake’ government derailed the development agenda the Jubilee government had.
“Since he came into government and relegated his Opposition role, what has he done other than distracting the development agenda we had in favour of seeking to change the Constitution to create positions instead of creating jobs. What Raila wants to do as President could have done it after conspiring with Uhuru to chase me from the government I helped form,” said Ruto.
