President William Ruto and his deputy Rigathi Gachagua assert that they inherited a failing economy, but former Treasury Cabinet Secretary Ukur Yatani has refuted this assertion today, October 27.
The country's gross domestic product increased, the outgoing cabinet secretary claimed, which they collaborated with the Central Bank of Kenya to observe.
He said that over the previous 11 and 12 years, Kenya had achieved the highest economic growth, which he put at 7.5.
"By collaborating with the CBK governor on the interest rate dynamic, Treasury worked extremely hard to ensure that there was liquidity in the economy.
"We were successful in maintaining and expanding the economy. We recorded among the highest economic growth at 7.5 GDP for the first time in 11, 12 years "He said.
President William Ruto and Rigathi Gachagua have consistently insisted that they inherited an economy that was near collapse. This declaration by the departing Cabinet Secretary refutes that assertion.
"We are inheriting a crumbling nation with Sh10 trillion in debt. Gachagua previously said, "Let all those who opposed us join us in constructing the nation.
