President William Ruto will have it very hard convincing Kenyans to give him another term in 2027, unionist Seth Panyako has said.
He is among the prominent Kenyans who stood with Ruto in the previous election, where he defeated Azimio La Umoja boss Raila Odinga.
But he says that things might not turn out great for the Head of State in 2027, after turning against Kenyans and doing the opposite of what he vowed.
He has pointed out that Ruto has abandoned what he promised to do, and is now doing that which he was elected to save Kenyans from.
Panyako now says that those planning to campaign for Ruto will have it very hard.
“I am wondering if I were to campaign for you (Ruto) in 2027, what will I be telling people? These are not the policies of UDA, these are not policies of Kenya kwanza because I was there, I campaigned for this government,” he said on Sunday.
He was referring to Ruto’s tax policies and inability to tackle issues like the cost of living, amid fears that Ruto plans on bringing in more levies.
“We promised Kenyans that we shall lower the cost of doing business, we shall lower the eight per cent VAT on petroleum; today the VAT has been increased while the VAT for helicopters has been removed, how many Kenyans own helicopters?” he is quoted by The Star.
This comes only a day after Ruto defended his policies, terming himself a good student of former President the late Mwai Kibaki.
