- The 94-year-old says politicians should be uniting Kenyans at this time.
- “Elections are gone, Kenya Kwanza is in place; let it follow its manifesto and let us root together and ensure the constitution is respected and all will be well,” he said.
Kenya’s ninth Vice President Moody Awori has called on politicians to stop what he calls “sideshows” and support President William Ruto’s administration deliver its manifesto.
Speaking on Monday after Prime Cabinet Secretary Musalia Mudavadi paid him a courtesy call at his home, the 94-year-old said politicians should be uniting Kenyans at this time.
“Kenya Kwanza won the elections in its manifesto and the manifesto emphasised the needs of the ordinary mwananchi. I am delighted to see that that is the direction it is going because we need unity. Sideshows; we need to leave them,” he said.
“Elections are gone, Kenya Kwanza is in place; let it follow its manifesto and let us root together and ensure the constitution is respected and all will be well.”
His comments come at a time opposition leader Raila Odinga is holding nationwide rallies to mobilise supporters to reject President Ruto’s administration.
Odinga, who lost to Ruto in the 2022 General Election, maintains the exercise was rigged and has been calling Ruto’s administration illegitimate.
According to Awuori, Ruto deserves respect and support from everyone as the Head of State, whether one voted for him or not.
“It doesn’t matter his age, he is now our father, the father of the nation. Let’s support him,” the former VP said.
