President Uhuru Kenyatta attacks his deputy William Ruto saying the Kenyan youth need jobs and not wheelbarrows.


The head of state addressed leaders at the Sagana State Lodge hosting Mt. Kenya region leaders, youth leaders, on Sunday.


The President described it as ill-informed, the decision by “certain leaders” to give handouts to the youth.


“Then you say we know the problem of Kenyan youth, that you want to help them by giving them wheelbarrows, who told you that the youth need wheelbarrows? What they need are jobs; they want to be independent,” Uhuru said.


“If you are truly deliberate about helping the youth, how about you ensure that funds from the government get to the ground?” he added.


The head of state also dismissed those rejecting the BBI citing pushed by ODM leader Raila Odinga as his in-road for the 2022 State House race.


“Those who say BBI is for Raila, do you think Raila needs a HELB loan? He is approaching 70 something, is Raila in charge of the Ruiru ward? If Ruiru ward gets more money, does Raila benefit from that? Is this not propaganda?

His opinions come just days after 41 MPs allied to DP Ruto’s ‘Tanga Tanga’ wing wrote him a letter, openly saying: we cannot sell Raila Odinga in our region.
