Uhuru said the disharmony in the Coalition Government indicated it was not a good system.
He said Kenyans should be allowed to elect a president of their choice, who will make independent decisions.
“You have seen what happened after 2007, we are always talking about half a loaf of bread. Will this loaf assist Kenyans solve their problems,” posed Uhuru.
The DPM was speaking at Kathwana in Nithi, when he started a tour of Tharaka Nithi and Embu counties.
MPs Kareke Mbiuki, Mwangi Kiunjuri, Gidion Mbuvi and Mithika Linturi accompanied him.
Reiterating that he would not drop out of the presidential race due to the pending case at The Hague, Uhuru said Kenyans should be left to choose their leaders.
Emphasised on unity
“I vied in 2002 and conceded defeat, in 2007 I supported President Kibaki, and am now ready to go back to the ring to fight it out,” he said.
Uhuru emphasised the need for Mt Kenya to remain united. “We need to approach the elections united and we should speak in one voice,” said the Gatundu South MP.
MPs at the meeting chided Energy Minister Kiraitu Murungi for insisting that Mt Kenya east region was in the Alliance Party of Kenya.
Mbiuki and Linturi said Mt Kenya east residents were solidly behind Uhuru in The National Alliance, and those against him are going to fail miserably in the General Election.
“We in Tharaka Nithi are solidly behind Uhuru in TNA and no one should mislead the country that the Meru region is in APK, which is commonly referred to as ‘Bus’,” said Mbiuki.
In an apparent reference to Kiraitu’s announcements that APK was still shopping for a presidential candidate, Mbiuki described the party as a grounded vehicle.
