WILLIAM RUTO says those pushing referendum are idle and foolish leaders like RAILA ODINGA

Saturday October 13, 2010-Deputy President William Ruto has once again lashed at those who are pushing for a referendum saying they are idle leaders who have no agenda for Kenyans.

Speaking in Bungoma County on Friday, Ruto said leaders should focus on development instead of being preoccupied with succession politics and 2022 elections.

 Ruto said some leaders said some leaders are more focused on changing the constitution than delivering their election manifestos.

“We need to focus on service delivery to the people. This ongoing rhetoric is idle talk and it should not be allowed to continue. The public is waiting for improved services,” Ruto said.

 Ruto’s statement is opposite of what he said in Tharaka Nithi a week ago when he told those agitating for changes to the Constitution to agree on what they wanted included or removed and bring to the table because Jubilee was focused on implementing the Big Four agenda.

“We are not opposed to the referendum. Those calling for the change of Constitution through a referendum should agree on what to reduce or add and why, give us the date and assure Kenyans that they will accept the outcome of the referendum as they always oppose the results of every election,” said Ruto.
