Written By: Muraya Kamunde


Deputy President William Ruto now says the Jubilee administration is well on course to fulfill its pre-election pledges.

In an apparent reference to complaints by a section of leaders over lack of development projects in Central Kenya, the Deputy President said President Uhuru Kenyatta’s administration had successfully “rolled out a comprehensive development agenda to transform Kenya since 2013, citing the SGR, tarmacking of roads, NHIF roll out, electricity connections, and establishment of TVET institutions country wide.

While responding to the ongoing rumbles in the ruling Jubilee party, the Deputy President through his twitter handle said that its members should use the appropriate channel to voice out their concerns.

“Jubilee members must use appropriate mechanism to channel matters concerning the party’s leadership and avoid unnecessary negative debate that only undermine the party, the party leadership and the President,” said Ruto.
