President Uhuru Kenyatta reportedly had some few words for the Members of Parliament allied to Deputy President William Ruto in an intense Parliamentary Group meeting at State House on Tuesday.
Reports indicate that the president went on a 30-minute rant highlighting how the Tanga Tanga MPs were clashing with his agenda. He also asked them to give him the respect he deserves.
If you don’t respect me, why don’t you at the very least just respect the office I occupy. You have branded me all sorts of names, but at least give honour to my office.President Uhuru Kenyatta
The president was visibly angry and warned the MPs not to undermine him nor his silence for weakness.
You will know me, I will be so hard on you. I know what you have been doing and how you have been referring to me. I am always given intelligence on each of you when you are still asleepPresident Uhuru Kenyatta
He, however, reassured them that he will keep his promise of having a successor after his term as the Jubilee agenda is far from over.
I still have two years, just respect me for the remaining period. Jubilee agenda is not going to be completed in 10 years, and as I said, I will keep my word and ensure we have another 10 years to complete the railways, Lamu port and other key infrastructure projects that I will not have completed in the remaining two yearsPresident Uhuru Kenyatta
The meeting only saw the president, his deputy, and Jubilee party Secretary-General Raphael Tuju speaking at the function. This saw some changes in the parliamentary committee with Mumias East MP Benjamin Washiali losing his role as the Majority Whip and was replaced by Navakholo MP Emmanuel Wangwe.
Igembe North MP Maoka Maore took over the Deputy Minority Whip’s role from Nominated MP Cecil Mbarire.
