In a speech delivered yesterday on February 4th during the first death anniversary of the late President Daniel Moi, President Uhuru Kenyatta talked of how this country needs builders and not demolishers for sustained prosperity.

As heard at the end of the video in the link below, the passionately speaking President finished off in that address by saying that "wenzangu, tusiteleze tulete demolition squad badala ya wajenzi" without mentioning a specific group of people.


A day after that address, Deputy President William Ruto has come out to refer to the NASA coalition members and specifically Raila Odinga's team as the 'Demolition Squad' in what could be interpreted as the use of the President Uhuru's words.

While speaking from Kilifi North constituency of Kilifi county when he met a number of political and religious leaders for a consultative grassroots meeting, the DP said that Raila's team is still stuck at where it was four year ago because it lacks a clearly defined agenda for this country.

"Today those who were our competitors in 2017 are still plan-less, clueless, radar-less and are stuck like how they were back then.

They've been called demolition squad because they demolished NASA, have come and demolished Jubilee but still they don't understand if they are in opposition or in government," he said.

On the same note the DP used the opportunity to give NASA people and all those interested in the 2022 presidential race a free advice on how to go about the issue.

That they should prepare themselves early enough, hold seminars if that's required and do whatever it takes to avoid the embarrassment that comes with trying to do things like fake swearing in come 2022.
