Quit politicking or go home, Uhuru tells Cabinet Secretaries
President Uhuru Kenyatta on Thursday read the riot act to members of his Cabinet that he accused of politicking at the expense of service delivery.
While addressing residents of Kitengela town on his way to Arusha, Kenyatta challenged his cabinet secretaries to choose between politics and implementation of government agenda in their dockets.
“We will not be fed by politics. We will be fed by our efforts and hard work that will improve the lives of all Kenyans,” said Kenyatta.
“Today I held a Cabinet meeting and I told our Cabinet Secretaries that anyone who is not ready for service delivery they are free to leave, because I have so many young Kenyans who are willing and ready to work.”
The President also underscored the need for unity in the country, urging Kenyans not to accept to be divided by anyone.
“Raila & I used to compete politically but we are now united. We need to decide as Kenyans that we will live together peacefully and work together to develop our nation & the East Africa. Politics cannot feed us, we will be fed by our hardwork,” said Kenyatta.
The Head of State is set to attend the East African Community Heads of State Summit in Arusha, Tanzania.
Kenyatta had earlier chaired a cabinet meeting at State House Nairobi the establishment of a Counter-Improvised Explosive Device Centre (C-IED Centre) at Embakasi Garrison in Nairobi was approved.
