(KDRTV) – President Uhuru Kenyatta has said that he has done more for Kenyans in seven years than what his predecessors did in seven years.

The past Presidents include his father Mzee Jomo Kenyatta, the Late Mzee Daniel Moi and Mwai Kibaki whom he succeeded in 2013.

Uhuru said the three constructed a 11,200 Kilometers of road but he has been constructing an average of 100o Kilometers per year. That translates to four times more than his predecessors.

In his speech during the Madaraka Day celebrations on Monday, Uhuru also said that he is proud of the SGR railway. He said his administration has also embarked on reviving the Nairobi-Nanyuki Meter Gauge Railway which will traverse 6 counties and the Naivasha –  Malaba railway which will link the SGR to Uganda.

“Turning to railways now, this is where my biggest critiques reside. But that’s ok, they are not alone, they are in fellowship with the colonizers who called our railway the Lunatic Express,” Uhuru said.

Kenyans have accused the government of spending billions on the construction of the SGR only for it to end in a bush in Naivasha. This is after the Chinese Government declined to fund the construction of the Naivasha-Kisumu-Malaba phase.

The current Nairobi-Mombasa SGR is operational but it has been making billions of losses every month in cost of operations.

In a previous interview with NTV, Uhuru said that he will be remembered as the first sitting President who had his elections nullified but accepted to go back for a re-run.

The President’s critics claim he did not accept the elections. He went on a rant and promised to revisit the Judiciary for nullifying his win. He also deported lawyer Miguna Miguna.
