A section of political leaders allied to the Kenya Kwanza Alliance camp have come out to defend President William Ruto's 30 days in office, saying that he had done much compared to his predecessors.
Speaking in Embu County after attending a goat-eating ceremony of leaders who supported Ruto's presidential bid, the leaders led by Governor Cecily Mbarire urged the Azimio La Umoja One Kenya Alliance camp led by Raila Odinga, and Wiper boss Kalonzo Musyoka to give the KKA government time to lay their foundation.
Mbarire argued that Raila should not complain about the cost of living when he was part of the mess that saw Kenya lose Sh50 Billion that funded BBI, and Sh200 Billion which funded the Azimio campaigns.
"Raila is speaking as though he was not part of the team that made life this unbearable. He supported the misuse of Sh50 Billion and Sh200 Billion on BBI and his campaigns respectively. That money would have been used to buy fertilizers and seeds so that farmers can produce enough food for the country. Let Azimio give us more time because we have a plan."
Raila had few days ago claimed that citizens are hurting since the cost of living has increased after Ruto took power, remarks that came after Kalonzo also urged the government to reduce the prices of basic commodities after Ruto did away with food and fuel subsidies.
