"I'm Not a Prophet or a Witch, I'm Sure Ruto Will Deliver" UDA MP Says in Kirinyaga Over Ruto's Move

A section of Mount Kenya Region leaders have welcomed President William Ruto's move to task the deputy president Rigathi Gachagua with streamlining the coffee and tea sectors, saying that, it shows how he is keen to protect the interests of farmers.

Speaking in Mwea on Sunday during a thanksgiving service that was attended by Ruto, Gachagua and other Kenya Kwanza leaders, Kirinyaga Central member of Parliament Gachoki Gitari said that he is confident that Ruto will revive the economy in the next 8 months.

He went on to say that with the support of the president, Gachagua will be able to revive the coffee and tea sectors thus ensuring that farmers have money in their pockets.

The vocal UDA MP also argued that Ruto has some traits of the late and third Kenyan President Mwai Kibaki who did an amazing work in reviving the economy.

"Your Excellency, when you brought 'Riggy G' to fix coffee and tea and maybe rice, we have relaxed because we know it will be implemented. We are happy with that, and we are comfortable with how you are running this government. I have worked in three governments, and I can tell you that I can see a Kibaki in this government."

He added, "I am not a prophet, neither am I a witch, but I know this economy will be fixed in eight months," remarks that attracted cheers from the congregation.

On recent Ruto's two-day official visit to Nyanza Region, Gachoki said that it was evident that the president was out to unite the country irrespective of how Kenyans voted in the August 9th presidential polls.

The leaders who spoke during the service criticized the Azimio La Umoja One Kenya Alliance camp ahead of their planned rally at Kamukunji Grounds tomorrow.
