Mombasa - The Deputy President William Ruto has once again lashed at the opposition saying that lack development agenda and are only working towards divisive politics.
Ruto, who was speaking at Caltex ground in Likoni Mombasa Saturday said that the opposition has lost focus and Coastal people should work closely with the government to ensure that it realizes development agenda in the coming years.
Ruto, who also delivered the same message after he inspected various development projects at Kaloleni in Kilifi County and Lunga Lunga in Kwale County in the last two days said that Jubilee government is working towards uniting Kenyans and end tribalism.
“The opposition is always criticizing everything the government does and it very well knows that it cannot break our development record,” said Ruto.
He said that the infrastructure agenda at the Coast and other parts of the County has been given a priority by the government as well as Women and youths economic issues, urging the locals at the Coast to support the government.
The DP while attending the burial ceremony of the late Rebecca Rai, mother to Kinango Member of parliament Samuel Gonzi Rai at Kinagoni still in Kwale County, also urged the Coastal community to ensure that they do not make the mistake of voting for the opposition since they will take the Country back to the olden colonial days.

“Jubilee part has an economic and development agenda forget about the divisive politics which the opposition is always preaching to Kenyans,” said Ruto.
While hunting for the same votes at the South Coast, Cord leader Raila Odinga also criticized the Jubilee government terming it as a failure.
Raila linked the top leaders to the land problems at the Coast and urged the people to vote the incumbent President Uhuru Kenyatta out in 2017 since he cannot solve land crisis at the Coast.
“How can thieves investigate themselves? The Jubilee government is full of thieves in almost every sector; it cannot solve the land crisis neither can it put corruption to an end,” said defiant Raila.
While speaking at Bongwe in Msambweni, Kwale County, Raila also appealed to the Coastal residents to ensure that they vote for CORD in the coming general elections since it is the only political outfit that understands the plight of the Coastal residents.
Deputy President William Ruto is at the Coast to prepare the way for President Uhuru Kenyatta's tour before the end of the month at the Coast, where the President will also open the Mombasa international agricultural show which kicks off on the 31st of August at the Jomo Kenyatta ground at Mkomani in Mombasa.
