In his new year's address to Kenyans,president William Ruto highlighted various measured that he had taken to stabilise the economy.He gave examples of the various subsidies he had done away with,revealing that his intention was to make a good foundation for the country's economy since the subsidies offered no long-term solutions to the economic problems facing the country.
At the same time he seemed to be chiding his predecessor Uhuru Kenyatta when he said that when he came to power,he had to do away with the subsidies since they made no economic sense and that they were put for political reasons.
However Dennis Onyango who is the current communciations director for the Raila Odinga Secretariat lashes at the president for undoing what president Uhuru had initiated.He alleged the president was doing exactly what former American president Donald Trump did when he reversed earlier decisions his predecessor Barack Obama had made.Dennis Onyango has opined that Ruto's rush to reverse what Uhuru did will make him be like Trump who was defeated after just one term.
"Donald Trump spent his four years in the White House trying to undo everything Obama did in 8 years. In the end, it’s Trump who got undone and had to try hanging on by force. If we continue like this, the rush to undo what Uhuru did will be our Trump moment in 2027," he opined.
