President Uhuru Kenyatta has accused his Cabinet Secretaries and other Government officials of sleeping on the job, making it difficult for him to fulfil his promises to Kenyans. A visibly angry Uhuru said he wondered why projects commissioned a year ago had yet to start, yet funds had been released.
Uhuru, who was speaking at Strathmore University in Nairobi yesterday during the Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) Presidential Roundtable meeting, said he was determined to ensure that there was change.
“I came with a prepared speech but after listening to you, I am so ashamed that I can’t read it. I will be lying to you if I read the contents of my speech. I am ashamed after the revelations made here,” the President said.
Trade counterpart Present during the meeting were Deputy President William Ruto, Infrastructure CS James Macharia, his Trade colleague, Peter Munya, and Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko.
Uhuru said his officials had let him down.
“I am sorry that we have not fulfilled our promises. Not even one of my CSs has set foot in Gikomba Market. We have neglected SMEs that pay taxes and employ 75 per cent of our people."
