Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua has sustained his onslaught against former president Uhuru Kenyatta this time accusing him of meddling with the affairs of the Kenya Kwanza administration.
In yet another attack on Uhuru, the Deputy President maintained that the country is in a big mess because of Uhuru’s leadership. He said the former president wasted his two terms in office by playing dirty politics which messed up the country’s food security.
“People who sabotaged farmers, undermined food security for parochial politics, have no business telling us how to work. And if they want to know how work is going, they should come here and see what’s going on,” he said.
“People are working day and night to make interventions to bring the cost of food down and they’re here trying to introduce politics of telling people how they should work. They had their own opportunity to work and they brought this country to its knees economically, let them give us time and see how we build this economy through practical interventions of increasing production in agriculture.”
The DP was speaking on Friday evening at the Mombasa Railway Terminus when he flagged off thousands of bags of cheap fertilizer destined for the country’s agricultural breadbaskets.
Other counties set to benefit from the subsidy programme are Narok, Uasin Gishu, Trans Nzoia, West Pokot, Migori, Kakamega, Bomet, Kericho, Elgeyo Marakwet and Nandi.
