"Tumo Mbioni" Muturi Sides With Ruto as he Differs With Uhuru's Remarks Concerning Youthful Leaders

The Speaker of the National Assembly Justin Muturi has differed with recent remarks made by President Uhuru Kenyatta concerning youthful leadership ahead of the 2022 general elections.

Uhuru while addressing thousands of Nakuru residents on Wednesday claimed that the young leaders are hungry of power and are moving at a higher speed not knowing that leadership is a marathon and not a sprint.

In what appeared to be an endorsement to the former Prime Minister Raila Odinga and a hit to Deputy President William Ruto, Uhuru argued that an older leader will move at reduced speed and is likely to overtake the young leader who started the marathon at a high speed.

Speaking in Ngong when he led a tree planting exercise on Friday, Muturi said that every leader is in a race to woo Kenyans of their votes and it does not matter the speed they use to sell their ideas.

"Tumo mbioni sisi, we will run, even in marathon people do run. There is no problem with that, others will even walk, probably those already running will work with those who are walking to stabilize the speed of who was ahead," posed Muturi.

The 2022 presidential aspirant added that the youths are at will to seek any elective post they want in 2022.
