Ruto says he will complete and launch all Uhuru projects

President Ruto has declared that he will complete and launch all the projects started by his predecessor retired President Uhuru Kenyatta.

Speaking during a late night television interview from Sagana State Lodge, President Ruto assured concerned Kenyans that all projects especially roads started by the previous regime would be completed.

He said he had spoken with members of parliament to the effect that priority should be given to the projects already started.

Ruto said it would be ridiculous to abandon the projects saying even though they were started by the previous regimes, they were meant to serve the public.

“Uhuru or Ruto does not own these projects. A project like Kiamabara road when will Uhuru use the road or myself. It is the people of Kiamabara who will use it daily. It is their road,” Ruto said.

He said he had also advised governors and MPs not to abandon projects started by their predecessors saying that would be a big failure as a leader.

Ruto who is on a 5-day development tour was responding to criticism that he had adopted retired President Uhuru’s projects and was launching them as his own.

He said the first years of his rule would to ensure he completes all the stalled projects including Mau Mau roads saying he was part of their conceptualisation.

“We planned these roads with Uhuru before the handshake came and disrupted everything,” said Ruto.
