After months of silence retired President Uhuru emerged in Mwingi today where he blasted his successor William Ruto for constantly blaming him for his current failures.
Uhuru who was warmly received at the Full Gospel Church of Kenya in Mwingi town, in Kitui County said it has become the annoying habit of President’s Ruto’s government to blame all their failures on his former regime.
Amid laughter, Uhuru said today, even when man and wife disagree, it is all being blamed on him and his former government.
He said he has learnt to ignore being blamed for the failures of the current regime saying the people will be the ultimate judge when the time comes.
Uhuru who said he had retired from politics but was a member of Azimio La Umoja said it if the business of President Ruto to deliver what he promised Kenyans and should now end the blame game.
He said he has been threatened and accused of all manner of things, but his prayer was for Kenya to remain united devoid of tribalism and class divisions of dynasties and hustlers.
Uhuru has heard a rough retirement that forced him to drop out of the political limelight after goons said to have been sponsored by elements within the government raided his Northlands Farm on the outskirts of Nairobi and stole prized livestock, destroyed trees and caused wanton damage.
Few weeks later people alleged to be police officers raided his son’s home in Karen alleging that he had unlicensed firearms something Uhuru dismissed as intimidation and harassment..
But the harassment appears to have toned down with one of his harshest critics former friend turned foe, Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua asked Kenya Kwanza MPs and supporters to stop attacking the former president describing him as “our son.”
Gachagua went ahead to say that he will look for Uhuru and they have a dialogue as he (Gachagua) seeks to “unite” Mt Kenya ahead of the 2027 general elections.
During today’s event, Uhuru had been invited to the fundraiser by Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka, and who was joined by several leaders from Ukambani and the opposition Azimio La Umoja coalition.
He said he was still part of the Azimio Coalition warning that the current regime should focus on the common people instead of their own “stomachs”.
Uhuru said the people should be treated with respect because they elected the leaders in office, and they will meet again at the ballot when the time comes.
