Deputy President William Ruto has chided politicians who want to be in the game longer than necessary.

Speaking in Kitale during Mzee Samuel Thiong’o retirement service, the DP said after 10 years he will pave way for young leaders to take over.

“We were done with politics last year on who will lead who and  now we need to focus on development. We cannot do politics from January to January,” Dr. Ruto said.

He urged leaders to focus more on development and the Big Four Agenda rather than 2022 politics.

The DP further urged the Ministry of Agriculture to speed up the purchase and distribution of subsidised fertilisers.

According to him, this will engage farmers to achieve food security.

“We got one  million bags of fertiliser but we need two million more bags to distribute to  farmers to evade food shortage,” the DP said.

Dr. Ruto also directed all chiefs and their assistants to hunt for parents who are yet to take their children to school.

He maintained that the government’s policy of 100percent transition from primary to secondary schools must be achieved.
