Ruto’s Govt Criticized for Distributing Fertilizer While People are Starving Due to Serious Drought

During the 2022 election campaigns William Ruto toured many parts of the country while promising numerous things his government would do for the citizens in the first hundred days of the Kenya Kwanza administration.

Makueni Senator Dan Maanzo has now told Kenya Kwanza government that they (Azimio) have started counting days against the promises made. Although the Kenya Kwanza Alliance government is still young, senator Dan Maanzo feels it is high time citizens start reaping from it especially in his Ukambani region where matters water has led to food crisis for many years.

The Azimio allied legislator said they are ready to oppose what they deem as wrong and oppressive to Kenyans done by Ruto’s government but added that where the government is doing right, they will join hands for the benefit of Kenyans.

Dan Maanzo further reminded Ruto’s government that they said they will bring down the cost of living. He reiterated that Azimio leaders are counting days now, and after 100 days they will do the necessary as the opposition.

Maanzo further castigated President Ruto’s project of distributing subsidized fertilizer to Kenyans while the country is facing a severe drought in numerous places, with Ukambani not spared. Maanzo wondered how the government prioritized distributing fertilizer while people are starving.

"Our people are facing a drought, there is no food at all. The government is busy distributing fertiliser but our people have nothing to put on the table. There is a looming crisis due to drought in Kenya," Senator Dan Maanzo said.
