Deputy President William Ruto has told legislators allied to United Democratic Alliance party that they have not delivered all the promises they made to Kenyans in the Jubilee’s manifesto and should therefore stop wasting time on useless quarrels and engagements.

Speaking at Karen residency during a consultative meeting with grassroot leaders and opinion shapers from Gatanga, Muranga County on Tuesday afternoon, the second in command said that he will not tolerate such laxity in his next government as he told the legislators to move with speed to initiate laws that will benefit Kenyans before the closure of parliament.

DP Ruto claimed that they have not delivered on some of their promises like universal health coverage, delivering enough job opportunities for youths and helping the farmers get market for their produce.

The second in command said that he will only be able to argue again with members of parliament allied to him if they will take to parliament, unite and initiate NHIF amendment act so as to deliver on Universal Health Coverage. He also told the legislators to move with speed so that they pass laws on housing funds.

“Stop wasting more time with useless quarrels and engagements. We have already lost four years engaging on useless things that sabotaged the big 4 agenda. I will only argue with you if you move to parliament, unite and pass laws that will benefit the common mwananchi,” Ruto told the legislators.

Ruto’s stern lecture to his UDA team, laying blames on the legislators for not delivering to Kenyans, comes as a complete twist since the the DP and his team have been in the forefront blaming the opposition coalition, Nasa, of invading the Jubilee government and sabotaging the big four agenda.

Mps Rigathi Gachagua, Kimani Ngunjiri, George Theuri, Irungu Kang’ata and nominated senator Isac Mwaura were some of the leaders present at the time Ruto delivered the lecture at his Karen home.
