Ruto pledges to deliver Jubilee promises in 2014

03 January 2014, 11:00 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - Deputy president William Ruto has pledged that the Jubilee government will deliver on its pre-election promises to Kenyans in 2014.

Ruto acknowledged that 2013 was a trying year for the country and that there were steep challenges faced but dismissed the notion that the government was a failure.

He further insisted that there are lots to look forward to in the new year and urged Kenyans to support government initiatives to achieve growth and success.

" We cannot afford to keep walking into the same pitfalls, snares and mazes that have denied us our rightful destiny and possible primacy of place in the community of world nations,” he said.

“As a country, we have lost the true meaning of dreaming. The rhetoric of dreaming over the last 50 years has been an increasingly sonorous chorus to which only a few paid real attention,” he said urging Kenyans to look into the future with optimism.

Ruto, speaking in his new year address to Kenyans also stated that issues such as insecurity and food security would be dealt with conclusively in the new year.

" Without sufficient food and stable security, the country will struggle to achieve its basic goals, he added.

He further reiterated that women and the youth will benefit from various government initiatives including the Uwezo fund to enhance personal and economic growth.
