Deputy President William Ruto has asked leaders pushing for constitutional change to give priority to the needs of the people.

He said calls for amendments to the constitution should not be informed by political and personal interests.

DP Ruto further said the COVID-19 crisis had led to many Kenyans suffering, an issue he explained needed urgent attention from the country’s leadership.

“Those of us who have been privileged as leaders should be selfless and focus on offering solutions to the problems bedeviling our country,” he said.

The Deputy President spoke on Sunday during a church service at African Inland Church (AIC) Pipeline in Embakasi South, Nairobi County.

At the same time, Dr Ruto said the Government would only reopen learning institutions after extensive consultation with health experts.

“No decision would be made until we are sure as Government that our children are safe.”

Kikuyu MP Kimani Ichungwa asked public servants mentioned in the COVID-19 corruption scandal to step aside and pave way for investigation.

He said it was unfortunate that some individuals were taking advantage of the outbreak to loot public resources.
