DP Ruto Fires Salvos At Uhuru, Raila Hours After Attending Prayers Breakfast

Several hours after urging President Uhuru Kenyatta to consider forgiving him if he had fallen short of his expectations while in office, Deputy President William Ruto has criticized Uhuru and Raila.

Ruto attacked the handshake brothers on Thursday while attending a political rally in Likoni, Mombasa County. He claimed that the handshake brothers had taken port operations away from Mombasa residents and had directed them to Naivasha and Nairobi, respectively for own gains.

Ruto stated that he will consider reversing the port's operations back to Mombasa so that the coastal residents can profit, adding that the two have no agenda for Kenyans.

He stated that they intend to reintroduce BBI reggae and establish a few roles should they assume control of the government in August.

"These men have informed us that they will add positions and reinstate BBI reggae; is this what you desire? Our first priority is to plan for the employment of our youth. We would use 100 billion Kenyan shillings from the government's coffers to create work for these youths. We have sang about this for years, but we will finally make it a reality after August "said Ruto.

"When these men took away my employment, they also terminated port activities in Naivasha and Nairobi to benefit their own families. I will ensure that Mombasa is reinstated because this is contrary to what we agreed upon while launching SGR,,"he remarked.

"They heard me promise to reclaim port operations, and they came here to make the same claim. You have led the government of handshake for four years. You never saw the necessity to reinstate Mombasa's port operations; what will you do after August? Let them not consider us to be stupid, "said Ruto.
