The ODM party leader and newly elected Azimio MP John Mbadi described President William Ruto's choices to revoke a number of previous President Uhuru Kenyatta's policies and initiatives as being made in a knee-jerk reaction. He was implying that the decisions to undo Uhuru's programs were made hastily, especially in terms of the economy.
Mbadi has claimed that the current administration's populist goal and lack of sound economic reasoning are the reasons behind the reversals of Uhuru's programs.
"Some of the policy changes Uhuru is implementing have existed even when he was completely in control as Deputy President. The previous government wasn't just Uhuru's, but the two of them. So how can he suddenly wake up and declare that all of these policies are now incorrect? "John Mbadi, the chair of the National Assembly's Public Accounts Committee, reacted to Ruto's reversal of 16 political measures that the previous administration had put in place.
John Mbadi, who recently predicted that President Ruto's economic policies will fail like those of former UK Prime Minister Liz Truss, who resigned after a very brief tenure, has further spelled doom for the Ruto administration. Following weeks of criticism over the failure of her economic initiatives, Liz Truss submitted her letter of resignation.
The current administration, according to Mbadi, is governed on faith, hope, and prayer, which is a surefire prescription for disaster.
"If President Ruto is not careful, I see his economic ideas failing exactly like they did for the previous British prime minister Liz Truss. A government cannot be conducted on the basis of faith, hope, or prayer." Declared John Mbadi.
