Deputy President William Ruto has said there are no camps in Jubilee, observing that the party is one without any groupings.
Addressing different leaders at the home of Bahati Constituency MP Kimani Ngunjiri today, the Deputy President said what President Uhuru Kenyatta says is final, and is on behalf of the ruling party.
“Those who are claiming that there are camps in Jubilee are day-dreamers. This is why what President Kenyatta says is always final and on behalf of the Jubilee Party,” said Mr Ruto.
He said that those in opposition were used to groupings because NASA comprise of different political parties with different ideologies.
Earlier on, while addressing a congregation at the PCEA Tabuga Church in Bahati Constituency, the Deputy President called on the leaders to embrace the politics of empowering Kenyans.
Speaking today at the, Nakuru County, Mr Ruto observed that the country was tired of the politics of power sharing, having come from the General Elections only a few months ago.
The Deputy President said that it was time leaders realized that Kenya is greater than the politicians and the political class. “Millions of Kenyans want universal healthcare, decent housing, high-quality education and proper infrastructure.”
Twelve Jubilee MPs who accompanied the Deputy President also dismissed calls for a referendum. They said Kenyans were just from an election and it was time to develop the country.
Kenyans, the MPs said, cannot be on a perpetual campaign.
Mr Ruto said the government was keen on pushing for further development in the country, observing that within a year, the extension of the standard gauge railway would have reached Nakuru Country.
Coupled with the construction of one of Kenya’s largest industrial parks in Kenya that would be based in Naivasha, Mr Ruto said that these developments would create thousands of employment opportunities to the youths.
He announced that at least 400-kilometers-long of roads were being worked on in Nakuru in an ambitious plan that seeks to boost the investment climate of the county. An additional Sh700 million, he said, would also be put into power connection in the region to boost connectivity.
“We have to work together as a nation. Even those who were in opposition are joining our efforts in bringing the country together to help address the needs of the people,” said Mr. Ruto.
Nakuru County Senator Susan Kihika noted that the country cannot afford to go for a referendum now.
“We have just started working for the people who elected us. We want more development and less politics,” she said.
Her sentiments were supported by the Bahati Constituency MP Kimani Ngunjiri, who said that there should be no debate on who would be Kenya’s President in 2022.
Present during the function were Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen, Kuresoi MP and Deputy Speaker Moses Cheboi, Naivasha MP Jayne Kihara, Nakuru Town East MP David Gikaria and Subukia MP Kinuthia Gachobe.
