Nakuru Town West MP Samuel Arama has told off Deputy President William Ruto over the bottom-up model.

Speaking in Nakuru West, Arama said the Deputy President is not genuine with Kenyans who are going through harsh economic times.

He said it was hypocritical for DP to go around the country purporting that he will transform the lives of Kenyans if elected President.

The second term serving Legislator argued that DP Ruto has been in government and that if he has not been able to transform the lives of Kenyans then he cannot purpot that he will do so in future.

“The Deputy President should be genuine with Kenyans.He has been in government and if he has not delivered, then how can he claim that he will do so in future” said Arama.

The vocal Nakuru Legislator also took issue with MPs allied to Ruto’s UDA party.

He said the Legislators who claim to have ditched Jubilee party for UDA have lost focus on development and are now busy on campaigns moving from one county to another.

Arama challenged them to start focusing on transforming the lives of their constituents first before engaging in 2022 politics.

“There are these group of MPs who every weekend they are with DP.I think it’s high time they start focusing on development in their constituencies instead of moving around aimlessly” he said.

The Nakuru Town West Legislator has on many occasions defended his development agenda in Nakuru West attributing it to good working relationship between him and President Uhuru Kenyatta and Interior CS Dr.Fred Matiang’i.
