President Uhuru Kenyatta now says he will leave his government in the hands of ODM leader Raila Odinga.

While addressing thousands of residents from Mt Kenya region at Sagana State Lodge in Nyeri, the Head of State said he will leave Odinga with Ksh13 trillion economy.

"Whoever I will leave the government to…. (attendants chanting Baba Raila Odinga), "that is the person I will give the government and I will leave him with Ksh13 trillion economy.

The Head of State, without mentioning, said Odinga was his best successor owing to his experience and commitment to continue with his development agenda.

"Let us support this man ( referring to Raila). When my deputy gets back on track, we can allow him to lead after this man," the President said.

In a scathing statement that was seemingly directed to his Deputy William Ruto, President Kenyatta accused him of failing to support his government agenda.

Instead, President Kenyatta said his deputy has been crisscrossing the country lying to Kenyans about failures of the government he is serving.

The Head of State said he entered a unity pact with Odinga for peace and tranquillity of the country and that Odinga has committed to continuing with his agenda.
