Rift Valley youth are asking leaders to focus their energies on helping the President implement his agenda for Kenyans, instead of focusing on 2032 succession politics.
The youths drawn from Elgeyo Marakwet, West Pokot, Trans Nzoia, Uasin Gishu, and Baringo counties have thrown their weight behind DP Rigathi Gachagua, backing his calls for all leaders to support President Ruto fulfill his election pledges to Kenyans.
“We fully support calls by the Deputy President to these leaders to stop premature succession politics and help President Ruto implement his agenda for the country,” Kimaiyo Kirop from Elgeyo Marakwet said.
The youths praised Gachagua for being steadfast in ensuring leaders embraced teamwork and unity in accelerating the development initiatives by the government.
Barmao Lojado from Baringo told the MPs to borrow a leaf from Gachagua and help President Ruto transform Kenya.
He said it was encouraging that the DP was working round the clock to ensure the successful implementation of President Ruto’s development agenda for the country.
“It is too early for some leaders to talk about succession politics when we have not even reached halfway of our first term in office. Leaders should stop this and deliver,” Barmao said.
Joseph Loyarem from West Pokot said it is too early for anyone to talk about 2032 succession politics when Kenya Kwanza is struggling to fix the country’s economy.
“What these leaders should be doing is to help the president in his efforts to fix our economy instead of focusing on premature succession politics,” Loyarem said.
The youths said the government under the leadership of President Ruto has done a lot to Kenyans but information dissemination is the biggest challenge facing the regime.
They urged MPs to help in telling Kenyans the truth about the progress toward economic recovery so that they become patient knowing that they have a bright future.
“Kenyans are becoming impatient because few leaders are telling them the truth. MPs should stop premature succession politics and join hands with the Deputy President and the President in giving Kenyans facts about what they expect in the next two to three years about the economy,” Kirop said.
