BY DPPS,VIHIGA,6TH JAN,2022-Deputy President William Ruto has said Kenyans will resist attempts to reintroduce imperial presidency through the backdoor.
He said plans were being hatched by some few individuals ‘who think they can control Kenyans’ to reintroduce imperial presidency.
Speaking in various stopovers in Vihiga County on Thursday, Dr Ruto said Kenyans voted overwhelming for the 2010 Constitution to among others get rid of imperial presidency.
“Some few rich people, out of arrogance think that they can sit in a certain hotel in Nairobi and appoint their puppet president to run the affairs of our nation and protect their interests and wealth,” said Dr Ruto.
He said Kenyans were more enlightened than before and they want a government that can transform their lives.
“Kenyans are eager and willing to vote for leaders who have plans and agenda that can transforman the lives of ordinary people, who form the majority population of this country,’ said Dr Ruto.
“The reality is that voters want a servant president who will listen to them and solve their problems unlike a puppet one who will worship and bow down to his masters,” he added.
The Deputy President noted that Kenyans in their millions will elect their president who is going to serve them equally besides creating wealth and opportunities for them.
He said the Bottom Up economic model is being embraced across the globe, saying US President Joe Biden is a proponent of the same model.
