(KDRTV) – Deputy President William Ruto has indirectly pointed an accusing finger at his boss President Uhuru Kenyatta over the stalled development projects across the country.
Speaking in Nyamira on Thursday, the DP said the Jubilee Development Agenda has been derailed by the BBI report and the glamour to change the constitution to create positions for a few elites.
“We (Ruto and Uhuru) had the National Housing Program as one of the Big Four Agenda that was aimed at building 500,000 houses every year across the country. The program was to create jobs for plumbers, carpenters, masons, electricians and engineers. But the jobs have stalled because we have been told that there is a very important project…the project of BBI which is geared on creating three or four jobs for some few people,” Ruto said told residents at Miriri Centre in Kitutu Masaba Constituency.

They must endeavour to be forward-thinking, work together to meet the needs of the people and shun any forms of divisive politics that may provoke division in the society. pic.twitter.com/jNJJpxfIAJ

Despite these setbacks, the DP vowed to vehemently oppose any calls to change the constitution as a way to create positions.
“If they are going to want us to talk about leaders we must tell them let’s talk about you, if they tell us to talk about the Prime minister, we will tell them let’s talk about the boda boda, if they tell us to begin with them, we will tell them to begin from down here with you, we cannot eternally continue to talk of building Kenya on the quick sand of the greedy those seeking posts through the BBI,” said Ruto.
