Wednesday June 3, 2020 – President Uhuru Kenyatta told Jubilee leaders on Tuesday that he will pick someone he trusts, and a person who supports and values his legacy to replace him as President come 2022.
In a statement many will consider a veiled warning to Deputy President William Ruto, Uhuru said that he will support a candidate who will build on his agenda.
However, his remarks have attracted furious reactions from Ruto’s key ally, Soy MP Caleb Kositany, who said Kenyans have the constitutional mandate to elect their President.
“Kenyans have the votes, the winner will be the one who has the best manifesto and a track record of development.”
“The reason Kenyans are eager for the next election is to end this culture of some people attempting to manipulate systems for their own benefit,” Kositany said.
The DP’s early campaigns have been seen as disruptive to the President’s agenda to build an enduring legacy.
Affordable housing, manufacturing, food security and universal healthcare are the four key pillars of the President’s legacy projects dubbed the Big Four Agenda.
Uhuru also has another nine-point agenda with Raila to cure the country’s recurrent challenges by embracing national unity as manifested by the handshake on March 9th, 2018.
