Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua has for the first time addressed the high fuel prices in the country urging for patience that things will get better as we move along.
The Deputy President was speaking as he landed into the country following his working tour in Colombia.
Gachagua called out a CS Moses Kuria and David Ndii over their remarks on social media as he reminded them they were appointed by the President who was elected by the people to serve them.
“While away, I keenly kept abreast discussions back home, especially on the recent spike in oil prices, which, though global, have not spared us. I have noted with concern the exchanges between public servants and the People of Kenya.
- Former Mungiki leader Maina Njenga abducted in Kiambu
- Ruto visits Starlink, advocates Grammy Africa Academy Headquarters in Nairobi
- Petrol will be 260 Ksh by February, says CS Moses Kuria
I want to call upon fellow leaders, particularly those that our President, H.E Dr William Ruto, has given the privilege to serve Kenyans to exercise caution in addressing Their Employer- the People of Kenya. It is Insensitive to talk down on The People.
I would like to remind them that although the people of Kenya did not employ them directly, they decisively elected H.E President William Ruto, who in turn appointed them Cabinet Secretaries and Advisors. And hence by virtue of this -they are employed by Kenyans.
You Do Not address your employer with arrogance. Do so with Humility and Decorum. Kenyans, like the rest of the world, are going through difficult Economic times and leaders should address them with Sensitivity and Empathy.
Responsible leaders should be sensitive and inspire Hope to the People-the Hope for a Better tomorrow. Talking down on the people and demoralising those who look up to them for solutions and a way out of the difficult situation they find themselves in is not good leadership.
Please Do Not SPITE the People of Kenya. President Ruto always encourages us to offer Servant Leadership, be humble, and serve with Humility. With deep respect, I would like to plead with the people of Kenya to appreciate that the issue of fuel prices is a worldwide challenge.
Things will get better as we move along. The Government remains aware of and is sensitive to the challenges Kenyans are facing today; the arrogant statements by a few leaders DO NOT, in Any Way, reflect the official Government position or that of President William Ruto.
The President remains committed to finding lasting and sustainable solutions to the economic challenges that face our great Nation.” said Gachagua
