President Uhuru Kenyatta has once again declared that he doesn't plan on retiring from active politics, despite pressure from his critics.
Uhuru has said that he will remain active even after retiring from the top seat, and will always be ready to help the incoming regime whenever he is needed to.
Speaking on Sunday, Uhuru, who has completed his second and last term, stated that the only thing that will change is his being President, and nothing more.
"If elders send me to solve a problem or send me on a task, I will still avail myself to do the work. We will all be in this country sharing the same problems and issues," he told vernacular media outlets.
Uhuru added that his new job will include giving direction to his people, in an apparent reference to the Mt Kenya region, which he said still needs him.
"We are going nowhere, we will still be working together, there is a lot of work to be done. I have only left one job and I'm going to start another one," he said.
This comes at a time when he is under pressure from allies of his deputy William Ruto to retire, after reneging on his earlier vow to endorse the DP.
