Deputy President William Ruto has slammed leaders agitating for a power sharing deal through constitutional amendment.

Speaking at Tabuga PCEA Church in Bahati, Nakuru on Sunday, Ruto rubbished the amendment talks saying they were insensitive to the general expectations of the people of Kenya.

The DP added that the country “cannot be in electioneering mood all the time while the lives of Kenyans demands total focus and delivery of services that can transform their lives.”

“We can’t have a discussion about who takes what, and how by amending the law, when will the 45 million Kenyans have a discussion about their plight?”

The Deputy President further added that the Jubilee administration was only interested in delivering their promises to Kenyans at the moment and, as such, would not engage in the politics of power sharing.

Ruto’s sentiments were echoed by Nakuru Senator Susan Kihika who said that the leaders were barely months into office and as such a lot of work was yet to be delivered “including provision of water, issuance of title deeds, carpeting of roads and many other capital projects.”
