Dr. Alfred Mutua of the Maendeleo Chap Chap Party has dared Deputy President William Ruto to resign from his post if he is unsatisfied with the Jubilee government, of which he is part of.
Mr. Mutua, who has publicly declared his interests to succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta in 2022, wondered why the Deputy President, William Ruto, was so passionate about attacking the Jubilee government when he is still part of it.
One Foot In, One Foot Out
Mutua called out Ruto for complaining about a government that he and Uhuru Kenyatta, hand in hand were voted in to form.
“Mimi napigwa na mazingaombwe, nachanganyikiwa napigwa na mstuko wakati naskia Mheshimiwa Deputy President William Ruto akinung’unika kuhusu serikali na ni yeye ako ndani, (I get perplexed and amazed, when I hear the DP, Ruto complain about the government when he is actually part of it)” remarked Mutua.
“Kenyans are getting confused about what is happening, you are in the government yet you are crying; if you don’t feel part of the government, then shift out, let the government organize itself”, he added.
Unimpeded, Rampant Corruption and Unemployment
Dr. Mutua insisted that Kenya’s focus needs to be directed at its core issues caused by unimpeded, rampant corruption and unemployment.
“What Kenyans haven’t understood is that lack of employment is caused by corruption. Corruption has led to the crumbling of our economy, closure of industries, lack of employment as well as low circulation of money,” he stated, speaking to one of the local daily’s.

If elected, he said his government will concentrate more on ensuring those involved in corruption cases are apprehended and their cases take less than six months to be determined.
Dr. Mutua also suggested a life sentence without parole for all judicial officers who are found guilty of getting involved in any kind of corruption deals.
“If given the opportunity, my government will make fighting corruption the first priority. I will allocate enough money to Judiciary as one way of ensuring all graft cases are completed. I will also ensure that the cases are determined in less than six months to give room for sentencing and acquittance,” he said.
