The DP blamed Handshake politics for the current food crisis in some parts of the country. He said that the Jubilee government was distracted from its agenda on food security by the Handshake politics, which bred the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI).
“We had the Big Four agenda and food security was one of the the priority areas, but 'that man of riddles' came in and destroyed the plans. That is why we are suffering,” said Ruto. He said that the Jubilee government’s food security agenda was shelved and replaced with BBI.
“Kenyans want seeds, fertiliser, water and a market for their produce. We must eradicate hunger and put money in the pockets of farmers,” he added.
“I have slept hungry before. There are leaders who have never slept hungry. That is why hunger problem doesn’t end in Kenya,” Ruto lamented.
“In our next government, we will emphasise food security that was disrupted by reggae when the Opposition joined the government.” added the angry Hustler Nation chief.
The DP donated 1,000 bales of maize to the residents of Vitengeni area in Ganze.
