Cabinet Secretary in the Ministry of ICT Innovation and Youth Dr. Joe Mucheru has lashed out at Deputy President William Ruto for celebrating Friday’s BBI loss.
”We were planning to shift more resources to mashinani through the BBI initiative but it wasn’t to be. Judicial activism took care of that. Yet we saw some leaders openly thanking God the father for the adverse court ruling,” the CS said.
Speaking in Kiambu during the launch of the NCCK youth fragility report at the national youth conference, Dr. Mucheru also hit out at the DP for hoodwinking young Kenyans with his kind of politics, which does not provide any innovative solutions.
”I am a student of economics and I do not see how the successful economic uplifting of our people can be carried on with outdated solutions. some of these far-fetched economic fantasies are anchored on falsehoods sprinkled with proclamations of sanctity by leaders who should know better,” the CS told the gathering.
Adding: ”These Bible-waving politicians have especially targeted the youth because they think – wrongly – that youth are gullible and easy to manipulate.”
