The Nairobi Expressway has been officially opened by President Uhuru Kenyatta after been closed yesterday because the trial time had expired. 

While at the launch, President Uhuru decided to retaliate to the attacks he has been receiving from Deputy President William Ruto and his allies.

"Uza sera zako wachana na mimi. Mimi nafanya kazi yangu nimalize. Nyinyi endeni muuze sera mkipewa ni sawa mikinyinmwa twende Nyumbani pamoja," Uhuru he started.

The president said he chose to respond because they had been misleading the public. Despite the various attacks they have launched against him, he claimed that in the last 5 years as president, he has never hurt anyone.

Uhuru claimed he had the authority to take any action during that time, but he chose not to since he had no animosity toward anyone.

"Nimekujibu kwa sababu umeambia watu mambo ya uongo. Si mumenitusi karibu karibu miaka tatu. Kuna mtu amewagusa? Hiyo miaka mitatu sinimekua kwa kiti. Sinilikua na uwezo? Sasa wakati naelekea kupeana serikali na sina uwezo ndo niko na time ya kukutafuta?" 

Ruto claimed that the president had threatened him and his allies in a secret meeting.

“I want to ask Mr. President, please, you should not be the source of threats in Kenya. Stop threatening Kenyans, your work is making sure all Kenyans are united,” he said while speaking in Kapsabet, Nandi County.

“Stop saying we will know you are the president, we are the ones who elected you to the presidency. Stop threatening us, We cannot be threatened.

With a lot of respect be a decent human being, we are the ones who helped you so stop pretending now, you have started threatening me but as long as you don't harm my children, let us respect each other,”  he added.
