President Ruto responds to ultimatums issued by Azimio la Umoja


President of Kenya, William Ruto, has responded to the ultimatums issued by Azimio la Umoja, stating that the government would not be intimidated by them.

During the launch of the Nairobi River Commission, Ruto addressed the opposition’s demand for a reduction in the cost of living, stating that it would take time and not happen within the two-week ultimatum period set by the Azimio leader, Raila Odinga.

Odinga had warned that failure to reduce the cost of basic commodities within two weeks would result in anti-government demonstrations.

Ruto emphasized that the country would be run based on the rule of law and the constitution, where all citizens have equal rights.

He added that nobody would be allowed to threaten Kenyans with impunity, and everyone must respect the law.

He also pointed out that the Azimio leadership was responsible for the high cost of living, given they were part of the previous government through the handshake.

Ruto noted that his administration had managed to reduce the cost of unga from Sh230 to Sh180, and urged the opposition to give the government time to reduce it further to Sh140.

The Kenyan President stated that the country had moved past the election period, and urged those wishing to engage in the matter to wait until the next general election in 2027.

He emphasized that his administration’s focus was to deliver services to Kenyans and create a stable environment for economic growth.

Ruto reasserted that the government would ensure all citizens were equal and would not prioritize those who backed their presidential bid when it came to sharing opportunities in government.

Earlier DP Gachagua stated that President William Ruto would choose public servants from those who acknowledged the Bottom Up Agenda and had faith in the government’s economic transformation agenda.

In conclusion, Ruto assured all Kenyans, including those who did not vote for him, that they would benefit from the government’s development programs, and his economic transformation agenda would bring progress to the nation.

He encouraged citizens to be patient as the government worked towards making life better for all Kenyans.
