Bungoma - Ford Kenya Party leader, Moses Wetang'ula has accused President Uhuru of using incomplete or stalled projects to campaign for his re-election.
The senate minority leader further said Uhuru, who will be visiting western region at the end of the month, had failed Kenyans with "false" development projects.
Addressing the press in Bungoma, Wetang'ula castigated Uhuru and his Deputy William Ruto for "rushing" to western launch development projects which are yet to kick off.
"They are on a charm offensive to hoodwink Kenyans that they are working yet the projects they are launching like the Chwele-Lwakhakha road have not yet taken off. How many times should the same road be launched?" he posed.
He again criticised President Uhuru Kenyatta and his Deputy William Ruto for running a government that has failed to meet expectations of Kenyans.
"Chwele-Lwakhakha road has been launched so many times. We need the working leader's and not empty rhetoric's," he stated.

At the same time Wetang'ula asked ODM leader Raila Odinga and Wiper's Kalonzo Musyoka to support his presidential bid.
"My presidential bid is unstoppable. I have experience and passion to lead this country as the president and my candidature does not translate to enmity among us; in fact we are great friends and all of us must be having ambitions for highest seat in the land," he said.
He continued: "What is important is to stick together. If Cord disintegrates now, we will have let down Kenyans badly. I have supported you and it is time you also reciprocated the same, it is time for a Luhya president."
The senate minority leader said that all principals will remain together in CORD.
"Support my presidential bid because we founded CORD together. We supported Raila and four years down the line, they should support my bid. We have stood with Kenyans and fighting for their interests. We will continue doing the same as we form the next government," said Wetang'ula.
Wetang'ula called on the Jubilee coalition to support the ongoing reforms at the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission. He insisted that people who can handle the next election with due fairness should be appointed to the commission.
"We need commissioners who will ensure that the next elections are free and fair. Let us speed up the IEBC reforms," said Wetang'ula.
