Deputy President William Ruto has called on leaders to stop politicking and concentrate on steering development in the country.
“We are not in a campaign period any more. We need to work for the people who elected us. That is what we are supposed to do not keep the country on campaign mode every day.
“We need to work and maintain peace and stability for us to move forward. Divisive politics that wants to divide this country should be shunned and work to improve the lives of our people,” DP Ruto said on Saturday.
Speaking during a funds drive at Namwela Boys’ High School in Chwele, where he was accompanied by Senate Speaker Kenneth Lusaka, Ruto urged the area leaders to focus on delivering on the Jubilee’s “Big Four” agenda.
The DP pledged to work with Bungoma county government for the sake of alleviating the lives of the locals.
“The people of Kenya voted for us and it is now our time to deliver on the promises we made. We are ready to work with everyone for the development of our country,” he said.
The Jubilee luminary also asked the leaders to stop sideshows and supremacy battles to enable them focus on delivering on their mandate.
“We do not want to see or hear about who is superior, whether Governor, MP, Senator but work for the people,” he said.
The DP further pointed out that Jubilee was ready to work with leaders at the grassroots regardless of their political affiliation.
“We know there is a governor here in Bungoma. We are telling him we are ready to work with him. This is not the time to question who supported which party, it is about service delivery,” he said.
On his part, Lusaka echoed Ruto’s sentiments asking area leaders to focus on fulfilling the campaign promises they made to the people.
