Show Kenyans what you have done, Uhuru challenges Ruto

President Uhuru Kenyatta (pictured) has told off his deputy William Ruto for claiming credit for government projects while campaigning for his presidential bid.

Speaking in Mombasa, the President said proper work can only be done in offices and not in political rallies.

"Some are saying we have done this and that while being on top of vehicles. Work is not done on top of the car, but in the offices and in theatres, ICU and wards where nurses work," Uhuru said.

The President further asked those criticising his government to give better ideas on how services can be delivered to the people of Kenya.

He called for less talk and more service delivery among elected politicians, hitting out at leaders who spend time criticising the Government.

The President without mentioning names said there is a section of politicians moving round the country telling Kenyans what they have done.

But Speaking in Swahili, President Uhuru said Kenya has made great strides in achieving Universal Healthcare for all saying the country is heading in the right direction.

He spoke as he presided over the official opening of this year’s Health Workforce Conference in Mombasa.
“The reason why United Kingdom, Canada and Australia are coming for our nurses, is because they are qualified. We are producing a quality workforce,” he said.

He lauded the management of Kenyatta University Teaching and Referral Hospital saying the Molecular Centre has already treated over 200 patients months after it was commissioned.

The three-day conference seeks to provide stakeholders the opportunity to harmonise the curriculum and training of healthcare professionals in the country in support of the Universal Health Coverage (UHC) pillar of the Government’s Big 4 Agenda.
