President Uhuru Kenyatta has rubbished claims by Coalition for Reforms and Democracy (CORD) that Jubilee has not done anything for Kenyans.
Speaking at the Jubilee Delegates meeting held in Kasarani on Friday, President Uhuru Kenyatta said that in the four years that they have been in power, they have rolled out numerous projects.
President Uhuru said that Opposition coalition CORD has resorted to name-calling and insults instead of spelling out what they would do for Kenyans if they win the August 2017 General Election.
“I was watching our competitors at Bomas of Kenya the other day and expected them to speak about their agenda for Kenyans, but what I heard was just insults,” he said.
“It is not true that we have not done anything for Kenyans, and it angers me that CORD can tell such lies. There are numerous projects that we have launched did not exist before.”
President Uhuru Kenyatta said that his government has improved maternal health, education, electricity connection and infrastructure in the country in addition to increasing the number of containers handled at the Port of Mombasa from 800,000 to 1.6 million.
President Kenyatta called on Jubilee aspirants to avoid engaging in fierce and personal attacks saying it reflects negatively to the party.
He further warned Jubilee members against engaging in exchanges with Opposition members saying instead of trading insults, they should focus on popularising the Jubilee agenda.
“The only people who engage in insults are people with no agenda; Let us not engage in exchanges with the Opposition, our focus should be on our agenda for Kenyans.”
Uhuru Kenyatta also assured the aspirants that the nomination process will be free and fair.
“I would like to assure you that the nominations will be free and fair; but for now let us focus on encouraging our constituents to register as voters to be able to win the August elections.
