I have no time for verbal exchange with noisy opposition leaders, President Kenyatta says

President Uhuru Kenyatta has said he will not trade barbs with people who have no development agenda for the country.

In an apparent response to insults hurled at him by Mbita MP Millie Odhiambo at parliament buildings on Tuesday, the president dismissed the opposition as an outfit that has no development agenda.

The president spoke on Wednesday after officially opening the Volkswagen production line at Kenya Vehicle Manufacturing plant in Thika.

“We are reviving the industries and doing all we can to revive collapsed industries to enable our youths get jobs. The opposition has absolutely no agenda for developing Kenya apart from trading insults as you all saw yesterday (Tuesday),” the president said.


“Let them continue but macho ya chura haimzuii ng’ombe kunywa maji. They have no interest in developing the country apart from making noise,” Mr Kenyatta further said.

“Our aim is to promote peace and unity, we have absolutely no reason to trade barbs with those who have no agenda for the country,” he added.

However, speaking at the same function, Kiambu Governor William Kabogo said Jubilee leaders will not allow anyone to disrespect the president.
