Kitui Governor Charity Ngilu has come out guns blazing to hit at Deputy President William Ruto for allegedly abandoning the initial Jubilee government agenda to pursue his own political interests.

Governor Ngilu told off DP Ruto for what she termed as focusing on sideshows and 2022 politics instead of helping President Uhuru Kenyatta to execute the mandate under which they were elected to office.

The former presidential candidate challenged Ruto to show Kenyans his development record during the time he has served as DP in the Jubilee government and allow them to judge him from that and not any perceived antics.

According to Ngilu, who spoke on Radio Citizen’s ‘Jambo Kenya’ show on Thursday morning, the DP needs to refocus otherwise he will only serve to derail the agenda of the very government he serves.

“Huyo Ruto hawezi saidia nchi yetu, anahitaji kutuonyesha factory ata moja ambayo ametengeza. Amekuwa Deputy President miaka tisa sai lakini amefanya nini? Unaangalia mtu na uongozi wake sio mdomo. Badala ya kumsaidia Rais Uhuru Kenyatta, kazi ni kutangatanga tu. Ukitaka kumsaidia mtu, si kumpatia samaki akule, ni kumwonyesha kufish ndio aweze kujitafutia,” said Governor Ngilu.

“DP William Ruto needs to refocus and help President Uhuru Kenyatta deliver the promises they both made together to Kenyans. His engagement in 2022 sideshows with his lieutenants within government only serves to derail government programs.”

The Kitui County chief further said there was no talk of succession politics during the recent visit to State House by leaders drawn across the Ukambani region.

She said they only paid a courtesy call to the Head of State to bring him up to speed about their development agenda as a region and ask him for help as the leader of the national government where necessary.

“Kweli tulienda ikulu na tulimsalimia rais na kusema mambo tunayofanya na mambo ambayo tungetaka atusaidie kwa sababu yeye kama national government ako na rasilimali,” stated the governor.

“Hakuna mtu anaweza kuenda State House na aanze kumwuliza rais eti ‘ukitoka hapa utamwachia nani?’ Wananchi ndio wataona mtu atakayeingia hapo State House atakuwa nani.”
