Fireworks As Unbowed President Uhuru Takes A Shot At Dp Ruto Alleges What Might Happen In 2022

Uhuru Kenyatta said yesterday that commencing campaigns earlier does not mean you will win the president, comparing the state house election to a marathon in which vision is required rather than just sprinting.

He was contrasting the two candidates for the presidency, William Ruto and Raila Odinga. It is apparent from his statements that he backs the ODM party leader as his successor.

"Vijana punguzeni speed, uongozi sio sprint, ni marathon. Mzee atakanyaga pole pole akupite ukiwa bado kwa barabara. Ukiambiwa huyu ni mzee tunahitaji kijana... mtu anachagua na ubongo wake... Uongozi sio mpira wa kuchezwa kwa uwanja, uongozi ni marathon sio sprint. Wewe kijana utakimbia speed ufike pale pumzi iishe....mzee akuje pole pole akupite mos mos," he said.

The President warned the chief Hustler that he can get votes but go nowhere.


He went on to say that with opposition support, his government was able to complete the majority of projects, and that the economy had improved since the handshake brought peace, which created a favorable atmosphere for many investors.
