President Uhuru Kenyatta on Friday bashed his deputy William Ruto daring him to resign from the government if he has problems with it instead of constantly bashing it.

President Kenyatta faulted DP Ruto for criticising his government from within while taking credit for its development projects while dividing Kenyans for selfish gains.

He said his administration will continue focusing on national unity and development.

“There’s no need to incite Kenyans. On one side, you say the government is bad and on the other you take credit for things the government has done. How many governments are there? Is it not one? If you want the good side then stay in, if you want to focus on the bad side then resign and allow us to proceed,” Kenyatta said.

The Head of State continued angrily, “You cannot be saying one thing about the government then on the other side you hurl insults at those you say you are working with. Let’s respect each other.”

President Kenyatta was addressing residents of Kabete in Kiambu County after he officially opened the Uthiru-Muthua Health Centre and Muthua Community Water Supply Project.

The health centre one among 24 such amenities that have been developed by the Nairobi Metropolitan Service in Nairobi and the larger Nairobi Metropolitan Area.

He appealed to Kiambu residents to support the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) Bill, saying it will ensure all Kenyans have equal access to government finances.
