President Uhuru Kenyatta has said that he will no longer send people around him to inspect projects since they have failed him.

Speaking during an extensive tour of Nyandarua County where he made several stops, a visibly agitated President said that some projects had failed to start because those he sent had started focusing on their own selfish needs.

“I no longer trust anyone…Those I used to send to represent me to ensure that development projects are on the right track started behaving like hyenas and doing their own things to enrich themselves.

“Let no one cheat you; from today, I am not sending anyone to help me. I’ll do it on my own,” he remarked.

According to some political analysts, the President’s sentiments might have been directed at DP William Ruto and his team and goes a long way to say how the relationship between them has faded over time.

The day-long tour also saw the Head of State launch a Sh4billion Stawisha SME Mashinani, a national program by the Ministry of Industry, Trade and Enterprise Development aimed at supporting small businesses in the country.

Stawisha is fashioned as on one-stop-shop to provide business advisory, asset financing, working capital, project finance and grants to SMEs either at start up, expansion or modernization stages.

Speaking in Ol’Kalou at the close of his visit, the President said the launch of projects in Nyandarua County is part of a broader government plan to implement development projects that will uplift the lives of Kenyans across the country.

“These projects we launched today are aimed at improving the lives of the residents of Nyandarua and are part of our wider plan to improve the lives of Kenyans across the country.

“We want to improve our roads. We also want every household and business to be connected to electricity to boost and also enable people to engage in small businesses that will benefit them," the President said.
