Bungoma Senator Moses Wetangula has told President Uhuru Kenyatta to stop launching new projects seven days to the election.
Speaking on Sunday, July 31, in Trans Nzoia County, Wetangula told President Uhuru Kenyatta to bid Kenyans goodbye as he moved around the Country.
The Senator instead told the Head of State to ask forgiveness from Kenyans for hiking the price of Unga and fertilizer.
"I want to advise President Uhuru Kenyatta that you only have one week remaining. There's absolutely no reason for you to roam around the country launching new projects in the last seven days of your leadership. You're making unnecessary, cumbersome, and reckless commitments that will burden the next government. Go around telling Kenyans goodbye and ask them for forgiveness for hiking the price of Unga and fertilizers," Wetangula said while in a church service.
President Kenyatta has urged Kenyans to maintain peace during the electioneering period saying he will hand over power to whoever is elected the next Head of State.
Kenyatta is backing Raila Odinga's presidential bid who is vying on Azimio la Umoja One Kenya ticket.
Kenyans will be electing a new President next week on Tuesday, August 9, 2022.
The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) has cleared four presidential candidates; William Ruto, Raila Odinga, George Wajackoyah, and David Mwaure Waihiga.
However, the main competition is expected to be between Azimio la Umoja's Odinga and UDA's William Ruto.
