Show us what you have done while in office, Uhuru slams Ruto

With only 38 days till the elections on August 9th, President Uhuru Kenyatta has once again poked fun at his running mate, William Ruto.

Speaking at a gathering in the KICC on Saturday, the President criticized his deputy for making a number of promises while he had the chance to make one in person.

Uhuru claimed that the DP had an entire 8 years to carry out the majority of the development pledges he is now making, but he was unable to.

"Nasikitika nikiona wengine huko ng'we ng'we ng'we. Mtu amepewa kazi, badala ya kazi ni mdomo, mdomo, mdomo tu. Alafu anaanza kusema tutafanya na tutafanya," he said.

"Kwa nini haukufanya ukiwa na kazi.Hii maneno ya makelele huko, huko, watu wawache upuzi... Munya hapa amefanya kazi kwa miaka mitatu. Hao walikua miaka nane walifanya nini?"

Which translates as "I find it distressing to hear some of the folks conversing outside. Someone has a job, but instead of doing it, he just talks about doing it. The same person then begins to promise to do various things ".

"Why didn't you take advantage of the opportunity to accomplish that? People ought to stop saying such things... There should be an end to this excessive noise problem. CS Munya has accomplished a lot during his three years of service here. What have they been doing for the past eight years?"

He stated, "Wakiona mtu na shida wanasema watatatua. Kwa nini hamkutatua mkiwa ofisi?" which translates to; " when they see someone with a problem they claim they will sort it out. Why didn't they sort it while in office?"

Prior to the August elections, the President urged Kenyans to exercise good judgment by reminding them that their future was at stake.

Uhuru emphasized that he has not forced anyone to support a specific camp, but that it is the responsibility of Kenyans to assess their leaders before electing them.
