He appealed for patience as the government endeavors to lower the cost of living and improve the lives of the common mwananachi.

Mudavadi urged Kenyans to be patriotic and not to slander their nation.

Mudavadi at the same time defended the new loans being taken by the government from international financial institutions such as the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the World Bank, saying they are friendlier and of low interest.

He reiterated the government’s commitment to lowering the country’s debt.
