Friday May 15, 2020 – Amani National Congress (ANC) leader, Musalia Mudavadi, has defended President Uhuru Kenyatta’s decision to axe Deputy President William Ruto’s allies from the Senate leadership, saying it is the way to go.
According to Mudavadi, Uhuru is perfectly within his mandate to make changes in his Government if he feels that those he has appointed are not delivering to his expectations.
“Uhuru must keep his eye on the ball.”
“He is between a rock and a hard place.”
“His priorities must be absolutely right.”
“The country is faced with numerous challenges which require his attention.”
“He must remain steadfast and not allow himself to be distracted by sideshows,” Mudavadi stated.
On the current wrangles which have divided the ruling Jubilee Party, Mudavadi said that Uhuru was justified to make changes that will enable him to focus his attention on the many hurdles the country is confronted with.
“His Jubilee Party is the one in power; as its leader he has every right to drive it in the direction he thinks is most suitable for him to achieve his agenda.”
“For the President to fulfill his promises to the citizens, he must expect maximum co-operation from his party and his officers in government,” Mudavadi said.
