Jubilee party vice-chairman David Murathe has claimed that those who wish to succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta must first aspire to be opposition leaders.
According to Murathe, anyone who has become president in the country has once been an opposition leader.
The outspoken ruling party vice-chairman further gave an example of president Uhuru and former president Mwai Kibaki who graced the seat of opposition leader after coming in second in the 2002 and 1997 general elections respectively.
“Nobody becomes the president of this country without becoming the leader of the official opposition,” Murathe said.
Murathe further urged Kenyans to choose wisely during this electioneering period.
“We are asking Kenyans to be wise and choose either Baba (Raila) or Alibaba,” Murathe said.
On his Jamhuri day celebrations message, Murathe said he was celebrating the achievements and milestones the ruling party has implemented since 2013.
“We are celebrating the achievements of the Jubilee government, and we are proud that Jubilee party has implemented the majority of the manifestos pledges they gave in 2013,” Murathe said.
Murathe further asserted that president Uhuru-led administration has built more roads and connected water to Kenyans more than the previous governments.
“We have built more roads and connected water than all the previous governments combined,” Murathe said.
He was speaking on the sidelines of the Jamhuri day celebrations at the newly refurbished Uhuru Gardens.
The Jamhuri day holiday is meant to officially mark the date when Kenya became a republic country.
