UDA Chairperson Johnstone Muthama has weighed in on President Uhuru Kenyatta’s plans to ensure opposition outfit National Super Alliance (NASA) is united ahead of 2022, before backing one of the principals for the top seat. The former Machakos senator on Saturday afternoon said parties in the Raila-led alliance were driven by self-aggrandizement unlike them, in UDA.
”President should stop flogging dead horse. Parties involved in already buried NASA coalition are driven by self-agrandizement,unlike Ruto who has already received blueprints from various economic blocs to use in his ideological bottom-up economic module after forming the next government,” the former senator wrote.
On Friday in Makueni after inspecting ongoing construction works for Thwake Dam, President Uhuru made it clear for the first time where he would like power to go next. During his speech, the president said Kenya needed focussed leaders who knew what they were doing, and have a clear roadmap to changing the lives of wananchi.
”When you hear Raila speaking, he is focused on infrastructure, infrastructure, infrastructure, he understands what is needed, Kalonzo, too. It is not just about speaking because you want to tarnish the thoughts of the youth. You must have a plan, but you cannot have a plan without thinking the needs that will in the long term help the citizens to fend for themselves.”
”The citizens do not want to be given tokens, they should be empowered to seek for themselves and fend for themselves. That is the country that you can say has proud citizens who are happy with their country. I will not say much, today was a day of bringing development,” Uhuru said.
