Prime Cabinet Secretary Musalia Mudavadi has urged
President William Ruto to stay put, focused and keep his eye on the ball,
calling on him not to be destructed or swayed by the happenings being
propagated by the Azimio camp led by their leader Raila Odinga.
Mudavadi said the theatrics being orchestrated by the Azimio team are out to circumvent the rule of law, cause unnecessary anxiety and are signaling a recipe of economic instability that could result into threating national peace and unity.
“Mr President, being our captain keep your eye on the ball. As your foot soldiers we will support you fully in the quest to move Kenya to the next level of economic prosperity. We will walk with you and stick to our agenda of resuscitating the economy for it to work for all Kenyans.” said Mudavadi.
Speaking at the William Ole Ntimama Stadium in Narok County during Sunday’s Interdenominational prayer and thanksgiving ceremony, Mudavadi quickly pointed an accusing finger to the Azimio leader Raila Odinga and his brigade, for staying too long on the queue of uncertainty without accepting that the electioneering period is long gone and Kenyans have moved on.
“Any program or agenda that somebody is pursuing now to disrupt the economy in the middle of a drought is an ill-advised agenda. It is il-advised, kusema kwamba unataka uambie wakenya wasusie products, which products do you want Kenyans to boycott? Yet we want jobs created, when jobs are created more Kenyans will pay tax and when more Kenyans pay tax, the government of President Ruto will be able to do more in roads, in medicine in hospitals, in education na Kenya iende mbele.” said Mudavadi.
He said it is now evident that many of the Azimio supporters have not accepted the reality of things after the August 2022 Kenya Kwanza victory.
Mudavadi says time for engaging in political mind games is long gone where a few people want to instill political fear among citizens with an aim of disrupting normalcy by behaving and doing things in a way contrary to that which is generally accepted or expected within the set-up of the society and nation.
“If you want to believe that you don’t want to believe that William Ruto is the President that is your wish, but it is not the reality, the reality is that William Ruto is the President. Kwa hivyo utusizungushe na kusema you don’t accept, earlier ulisema you don’t accept President Moi’s government next there was co-operation, next you said you don’t accept President Kibaki’s government there was a grand coalition, you said you don’t accept President Uhuru’s government there was a handshake, now you are saying you don’t want?” said Mudavadi.
