Your time is up so don’t provoke us, Sudi warns Uhuru

Oscar Sudi has asked President Uhuru Kenyatta to ‘start packing up’ and prepare to leave office as his ten-year term draws to a close.

The vocal lawmaker, a close ally of Deputy President William Ruto, made the statement in response to President Kenyatta’s claim that his Deputy has been politicking on top of cars for the past five years instead of working in the office.

“I asked some people to help us work and improve the lives of Kenyans and they said you have no right to stop us from politicking. I told them that was fine. But you cannot work on top of cars, you need to work from an office or hospital,” said President Kenyatta during a working visit in Mombasa.

But Sudi, the Kapsaret lawmaker, also reminded the retiring President, via a video message posted on his social media pages, that his political career was also formed while addressing political rallies on top of cars.

“From 2002, you were helped ( to get political office) on top of cars. Some people had to stand on those cars to enable you to become President,” claimed Sudi.

“Please start packing. Your time is up. If you have projects to launch, launch them as you prepare to leave office. And please don’t provoke us because we have a lot to say.”

Sudi’s sentiments further indicate the broken relationship between the President and his Deputy ahead of the August 2022 polls.

Ruto is gunning to inherit his boss’s office while President Kenyatta appears to be warming up to Raila Odinga as his successor.
