"Stop Being Silly" Furious Uhuru Tells Opposers Day After Ruto Hinted at Prosecuting Him

President Uhuru Kenyatta was today at the Kenyatta International Convention Center, KICC presiding over the 100th anniversary of Cooperatives in Kenya.

The Head of State, in his speech, found the opportunity to respond to his estranged deputy William Ruto just a day after he unveiled his manifesto at Kasarani.

Uhuru seemingly took issue with Ruto's manifesto saying that he failed to fulfil his promises to Kenyans in the eight years he has been in government and described him as a leader who issues empty promises.

"I am saddened when I see other leaders just talking every time instead of doing the job they have been assigned. They are always saying 'we will do it,' why did you not do it in the eight years you have been in government? This issue of making noise should stop. Your head is just full of noise. Stop being silly," infuriated Uhuru said without mentioning the DP's name.

Ruto had hinted at prosecuting Uhuru once he clinches power in his manifesto where he noted that he would order a judicial committee to look into state capture and cronyism that has engulfed the Jubilee administration and bring the perpetrators to book.

It's your own decision

Uhuru added that Kenyans should make a wise decision and elect leaders who are going to steer the country forward noting that he will not force anyone to vote a certain way.

"As I have said before, it is your own decision. Think about the leader you want. I will not force you. It's your own problem. Think think think," he said as quoted by the Star.

Uhuru's reaction comes less than forty days to the election that is pitting the Deputy President against Azimio La Umoja One Kenya coalition presidential candidate Raila Odinga whose party Uhuru chairs.
