President Uhuru Kenyatta has told off a section of Jubilee leaders who have been critical of his administration’s development record in his home turf of Central Kenya.
Speaking in Mombasa on Monday, President Kenyatta condemned politicians accusing him of neglecting the Mt. Kenya region despite the area overwhelmingly voting for him in the last elections.
The Head of State asserted that he would not be swayed by the criticism, asking the leaders to leave him alone as he is focused on ensuring that every part of the country benefits from the government’s development agenda.
“I am not a person who is easily scared… Those going around playing petty politics I want to tell them this. We will not launch development projects based on which region a leader comes from. We want all 45 million Kenyans to benefit, we want all corners of this country to grow,” said Kenyatta during the commissioning of the Mama Ngina waterfront regeneration project. Citizen Digital
“We want a country where every single citizen is entitled to development regardless of where the leader comes from. Kwa hivyo hao washenzi waachane na mimi…(Let those stupid people leave me alone).”
He added: “We want a country where every Kenyan feels they are part of this nation.”
