Opiyo Wandayi Reacts to Ruto's Latest Remarks on GMOs as he Reveals What Azimio Has Planned in 2023

The Minority Leader in the National Assembly Opiyo Wandayi has criticized President William Ruto over his yesterday's remarks concerning the government's decision to lift the ban on GMOs.

Ruto in his interview with journalists from different media houses at State House said that the decision to do away with the ban on GMOs was taken since there is no evidence to show that the genetically modified products have negative impact on human health.

He added that he cannot make a decision that will harm Kenyans who voted for him, with a section of leaders welcoming the idea, saying that Kenyans should not die of hunger.

The president also termed reports that men will grow breasts, women will grow beards, and others might have extra limbs if they consume GMOs, saying that those are propaganda.

Taking to his Twitter account on Thursday evening, Wandayi said that the president was inconsiderate with his remarks.

"Like most Kenyans, Azimio is disappointed with the President for reducing the food security concern to that of jokes about GMOs and breasts. We're asking the President not to mock the dignity of Kenyans struggling to put food on the table. This humiliation must stop."

He went on to add that the Azimio La Umoja One Kenya Alliance camp is prepared to put Ruto and his government on toes, saying that the Raila Odinga led camp will not pretty and will advocate for issues affecting Kenyans.

"I assure Kenyans that in 2023, their uncertainties are of concern to Azimio, and will be the core of our agenda in the legislature. We will be calling for reversal of the changes the UDA government made in 2022 which resulted to the increase of the prices of basic commodities."
