Agriculture Cabinet Secretary Peter Munya has hit hard at Deputy President William Ruto for failing to deliver during the time he has been in government and trashed the Bottom-up economic model.
Speaking during a meeting with coffee farmers drawn from Machakos County, Munya said that the Deputy President was lying to Kenyans with the bottom-up model and yet he was in the government for 8 years without helping the common mwananchi.
“You have been in the government for 8 years. This time is when you have known about mama mboga and bodaboda people, you have been an agriculture minister and during your time even the farmers could not access fertilizers because of brokers in the ministry,” CS Munya said.
“These are the people who were Attacking and beating Kenyans when we were fighting for democracy and multiparty. Those are the people promising you a new Kenya in 2022.” The CS added.
The Cabinet Secretary drummed up support for Azimio La Umoja saying that it was going to bring Kenyans together without discrimination or tribalism just like President Uhuru Kenyatta and Raila Odinga did.
“We are in Azimio La Umoja because we want to have one Kenya a unified country just like the president did with Raila Odinga so that we will not be having two Kenya one in the government and the other out of the government,” He went on.
Munya also took a swipe at the Deputy president’s Kazi ni Kazi slogan and the dishing out of wheelbarrows noting that parents Don’t take children to school to be given wheelbarrows.
Munya spoke at Tala, during the farmer sensitization meeting on the coffee farm inputs subsidy program. This stimulus program targets 82,650 farmers in the 32 coffee growing counties both smallholder coffee farmers belonging to a cooperative society and small estate coffee farmers or any other farmer belonging to an association holding less than 20 acres of land under coffee.
The overall goal of the program is to promote a sustainable increase in income among coffee growers through improved productivity.
