Deputy President William Ruto has rubbished claims from a section of his critics who have accused him of failing to execute his duties as the principal assistant of president Uhuru Kenyatta.Speaking on Wednesday at his Karen residential home during a women’s empowerment, Ruto said at no point had he failed to serve the country as the principal assistant of the president.
“ No work has been given to me and I failed to execute,” Ruto said.The DP came under criticism after skipping the National covid-19 conference on Monday. The DP during a meeting with a delegation of women in business from Nairobi county said that every work and responsibilities given to him by the president had been discharged with distinction.He said those purporting to supervise him should focus on their own work of serving the people.
“ Who are they to complain about my work? Who made them my supervisors?”The DP say he knows his work and his boss president Uhuru has not complained about his performance.He said the government would continue supporting women in starting and running their own businesses as part of the grand plan to empowering them.He was also accompanied by senetors Millicent Omanga and Susan Kihika, MPs’ Nixon Korir,John Kiarie,Kimani Ngunjiri and James Gakuya among many others.
