Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua has once again asked the people of Kenya to be patient with the economic situation in the country as the Kenya Kwanza government is working towards fixing it.
Speaking during a thanksgiving service for uniformed disciplined services at the Holy Family Basilica in Nairobi, DP Gachagua reiterated that the William Ruto-led government inherited a dilapidated economy.
Rigathi Gachagua and his boss President Ruto while unveiling his long-awaited manifesto, pledged to bring down the cost of living in his first 100 days in office if he wins the August 9 presidential election.
He therefore urged Kenyans to stop rushing the government saying Kenya Kwanza 100 days have not expired.
"Stop rushing us. The 100 days have not expired," DP Rigathi
Dr Ruto also promised to prioritise investments in agriculture to increase food production locally and wean the country off expensive food imports.
"We inherited a dilapidated nation and we have work to do to revive the economy of this nation. We will be calling upon all of you to bear with us because the 100 days have not expired," he added.
Rigathi Gachagua, told off the Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Coalition leader Raila Odinga over claims that president Ruto is peddling empty promises to Kenyans with his relief food.
He said Mr Odinga should now limit his criticism on the government of day as it tries to fix the ills perpetrated by the Jubilee administration.
