Pres­i­dent Uhuru ad­dresses res­i­dents of Kan­duyi in Bun­goma

‘Any­one who can­not see any­thing good for his coun­try is not sup­posed to be in the coun­try or alive. I ask op­po­si­tion lead­ers to put our dif­fer­ences aside and work to­gether’

Pres­i­dent Uhuru Keny­atta has once again lashed out at op­po­si­tion lead­ers for “mis­lead­ing wananchi with ret­ro­gres­sive pol­i­tics”.

He said the coun­try will never move ahead with lead­ers spread­ing ha­tred, lies and pro­pa­ganda about his ad­min­is­tra­tion.

Uhuru spoke in Kan­duyi, Bun­goma town, when he made a stopover on his way to the first grad­u­a­tion cer­e­mony of Kibabii Univer­sity Col­lege.

He said the Ju­bilee ad­min­is­tra­tion has been try­ing to im­prove the lives of Kenyans since 2013. “I’m shocked and sur­prised to see to­day in the pa­pers some­one say­ing that [Chief of Staff Joseph] Kinyua went home be­cause we gave Bun­goma county Sh100 mil­lion meant for the health sec­tor,” Uhuru said. “I’m ask­ing, is the money sup­posed to come to Bun­goma hos­pi­tals for res­i­dents to ac­quire proper health­care or is it sup­posed to go back to Nairobi?”

He said there are some elected lead­ers who “spe­cialise in mak­ing noise ev­ery time the gov­ern­ment does a good thing for the cit­i­zens”.

Uhuru told the op­po­si­tion lead­ers to tell Kenyans what they have achieved in the years they have served in pre­vi­ous gov­ern­ments.

He said Bun­goma has re­ceived a char­ter for Kibabii Univer­sity Col­lege, which they had been de­nied for years.

The Pres­i­dent also said Pan Pa­per Mills is be­ing re­vived and many roads are be­ing con­structed in the area.

Uhuru said some lead­ers are con­stantly nag­ging the gov­ern­ment with pol­i­tics that might di­vide the coun­try. “Any­one who can­not see any­thing good for his coun­try is not sup­posed to be in the coun­try or alive,” he said. “I want to ask my fel­low op­po­si­tion lead­ers to put our dif­fer­ences aside and work to­gether for the sake of our coun­try.”

Uhuru said the Ju­bilee ad­min­is­tra­tion wants a coun­try where peo­ple should not worry about some­one’s tribe, re­li­gion or sta­tus.
