President Uhuru Kenyatta on Tuesday, November 10 hit out at leaders engaging in premature campaign at the expense of focusing on development in a move that was targeted at Deputy President William Ruto.
Speaking while opening the cargo transit shed linking the Embakasi Inland Container Depot to other counties, Uhuru wants politicians to stop incitement and early politics.
The President said that there is no need of politicians going around making noise instead of bringing development to Kenyans.
“The people I am talking about know themselves. Let us facilitate our people and make their lives easier not complicated.”
“This was not a big issue. It is just a matter of taking up a problem and finding out a way. We must reform the way we provide services to our people,” President Uhuru said.
The Head of State sated that the new cargo transit she Uhuru will help in creating employment for the youth and ease the cost of doing business for SMEs.
President Uhuru also directed Nairobi Metropolitan Services (NMS) boss General Mohammed Badi to ensure that he installs CCTV cameras at the railway station.
“If any public servant is not content with the salary he is receiving from the government, he can leave it and start his own business….so that I can see if you are harassing people. We are here for the people.”
“We started this cargo shed so as to find a way in which business people will be equal before the eyes of the government.”
“The containers which are now consolidated will be brought here and traders will now have easy access to them.” President Uhuru added.
