Kiharu MP Ndindi Nyoro has told off President Uhuru Kenyatta over what he terms as intimidation and harassment to Deputy President William Ruto’s supporters.
The MP, a harsh critic of the President and a front ally of Dr Ruto said if he (the President) is tired of Dr Ruto, he should ensure he gives back the votes he convinced electorates to give to Uhuru during the 2013 and 2017 general elections.
He said it was unfair, wrong and unrealistic for the President to use Dr Ruto as a bridge to clinch the Presidency and then later dump him saying he is ready to loose the Parliamentary Committee position rather than betraying his people who he said are backing Dr Ruto’s 2022 Presidential ambitions.
‘If they are tired of Dr Ruto let them give him back all the votes he looked for the President rather than intimidating and harassing him and the leaders who are affiliated with him,” the furious Nyoro said.
He added that it was sorry and unfortunate for the President to shortchange Dr Ruto with Raila Amollo Odinga when he knew too well that should they formed an alliance with him he would not be in State House and even if he (Uhuru) sought the Presidency alone without Dr Ruto he would not be the President of the Republic of Kenya,” he added.
He advised the President to concentrate on service delivery to Kenyans instead of engaging in side shows saying those he calls detractors will not be remembered for his failure and that he will solely carry the blame game.
“Even if we look back at Moi and Kibaki regimes no one remembers those who used to detract them from implementing the development projects to Kenyans, they carry the blame or the congratulatory messages at individual capacity, the President should focus on service delivery,” he said.
Mr Nyoro claimed that when some powerful sources within Jubilee government plan how they will punish Dr Ruto allied leaders, they consume a very expensive whisky that can pay the school fees of a poor students but he said his team will not be moved or bow to intimidations.
He said although he respected the President who he said he is like his father he has differed with his leadership style.
