Not all Kalenjins and Kikuyus are eating meat, says Ruto

26 September 2016, 13:34

Nairobi - The Jubilee party is a coalition of selfish meat eaters who have betrayed Kenyans, Bomet Governor Isaac Ruto has said.

Ruto said that the Jubilee party does not hold the interests of common Kenyans at heart but is more focused on fulfilling the interests of a few selfish individuals while poor Kenyan continue to languish in poverty.

The Chama Cha Mashinani (CCM) leader said that Jubilee has no agenda for Kenyans and its priorities are upside down.

Ruto who spoke Monday morning during an interview in a local radio station, said that the projects being initiated by Jubilee have no direct impact on the lives of poor Kenyans.

“Why are they giving Kenyans a rail from China?” posed Ruto.

“Kenyans don’t need a modern rail because it will not help them. They need basic things like good hospitals and schools but not laptops for children in class one,” he said.

“Jubilee is a collection of meat eaters who have come together with the common interest of eating meat while millions of Kenyans watch,” he added.

The fiery Governor disputed the notion that the jubilee government is for the Kikuyu and Kalenjin saying that there are millions of Kalenjins and Kikuyus who are languishing in poverty and suffering just like other Kenyans.

“This notion that the Jubilee government is for the Kikuyu and Kalenjin is wrong because not all Kalenjins and Kikuyus are eating meat. The meat is being eaten by a few greedy individuals who are using the name of their tribes,” he said.

“The way a poor Luo in Kisumu is suffering is the same way a poor Kikuyu in Nyeri is suffering, same to the poor Kalenjin in Bomet,” said Ruto.

He further said that he is not in competition with the deputy President William Ruto because they are not seeking the same seat.
