Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua has told off a section of Kenya Kwanza government officials over their public utterances on the hike in fuel prices.
In a statement on Sunday afternoon, the DP warned Trade and Investment Cabinet Secretary Moses Kuria and President Ruto’s Economic Advisor Dr. David Ndii against arrogance and insensitive talk on issues bedeviling Kenyans, especially on the recent spike in oil prices.
”I would like to remind them that although the people of Kenya did not employ them directly, they decisively elected H.E President William Ruto, who in turn appointed them Cabinet Secretaries and Advisors. And hence by virtue of this -they are employed by Kenyans. You Do Not address your employer with arrogance. Do so with Humility and Decorum,” he said.
The country’s second in command assured the country things will get better despite the current circumstances and also emphasized the importance of sensitivity in addressing the economic challenges faced by Kenyans due to the global increase in fuel prices.
”Things will get better as we move along. The Government remains aware of and is sensitive to the challenges Kenyans are facing today; the arrogant statements by a few leaders do not, in Any Way, reflect the official Government position or that of President William Ruto,” he stated.
Gachagua concluded by conveying President Ruto’s commitment to finding lasting and sustainable solutions to the economic challenges facing Kenya.
