President Uhuru Kenyatta has asked opposition to stop attacking security and other government agencies ahead of August 8 elections.

Mr Kenyatta said instead of whining Nasa leaders should instead focus on how to consolidate their votes ahead of next month’s polls.

Speaking in Adungosi, Teso South constituency where he received a rousing welcome, the head of state flaunted Jubilee government achievements in the last four years.

“My friend Raila is always complaining over some institutions and officers not at his level. He has attacked IEBC and now Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i.

“If he wants a ministerial post let him wait patient we get through with elections and we will offer him a job,” he said.

He asked Mr Odinga to keep off Mr Matiang'i and allow him undertake his duties.

“He has accused our security officers and yet there only role is to maintain law and order including his own security.”

The head of state added that he alongside his deputy William Ruto they have tackled problems affecting Kenyans with a genuine concern to find solutions.

He said his administration has expanded the country’s road infrastructure and will continue working with area leaders towards the path of development.

“We have already committed Sh800 million to upgrade Busia Referral and Kocholia hospitals to relieve our people the pain they have been going of seeking medical services in other parts of the country.”

The president who was accompanied by Teso South MP Mary Emaase and a host of Jubilee candidates for various elective posts later visited St Monica Chakol Girls High School where he dished out Sh300,000 for ‘supper’.
