Opposition too greedy for power, says Uhuru
17 March 2016, 07:59
Nakuru - President Uhuru Kenyatta has accused opposition leaders of being too hungry for power.
Speaking Wednesday evening when he addressed residents of Nakuru, Uhuru said CORD leaders are not driven by the need to serve people but pure greed to grab power.
He said that he and his deputy William Ruto are not merely interested in power but are committed to serve Kenyans.
"As for me and Ruto, we have made it clear that our interest is not power but service to the people of Kenya but our friends in the opposition are more focused on getting power," said Uhuru.

Uhuru cautioned Kenyans against electing leaders who lack vision and those who divide them along tribal lines.
"Some people are just out to fulfill their selfish egos and you must avoid such people by all means," he said.
The President said his government was ready and willing to engage the opposition in positive criticism and dialogue but not empty talk.
