Deputy President William Ruto has told politicians pushing for constitution amendments to create more political positions to stop being greedy and instead focus on development.
The Deputy President said the move will only benefit a few individuals at the expense of Millions of Kenyans.
Ruto said the Government will focus on implementing development projects what will create jobs for millions of jobless Kenyans.
He said it would be unfair to engage Kenyans on another political contest even before Kenyans recover from last year’s politics.
Ruto said: “We are not going to change the constitution so that politicians can get positions.”
He added: “Our priority is to serve Millions of Kenyans, not to engage in an exercise that will only satisfy the needs of greedy politician.”
Speaking at Kapkatet Primary School in Buret Constituency during the thanks giving ceremony of area MP Japhet Tanui, Ruto said the Government is ready to work with all leaders for the sake of development.
He said: “We are ready to unite with all leaders for the sake of development so that we can serve the people who elected us well.”
Ruto’s sentiments were echoed by Rift Valley MPs who welcomed ongoing efforts by leaders to unite the country a move they said was creating a conducive environment for development.
The over 20 MPs welcomed the unity pact between President Uhuru Kenyatta and opposition leader Raila Odinga and the recent meeting between Raila and the former President Daniel Moi and his son Gideon.
They, however, said their support for Ruto in 2022 will not be destructed by those activities adding that they will only produce and support one presidential candidate.
