President-elect William Ruto has stated that he will not play blame games with regard to the country’s food shortage and economic situation.
In an interview with CNN’s Christiane Amanpour, Ruto stated that blaming each other will not help any situation improve.
“I don’t think it will help in any situation, finger pointing, blame game,” he said. “I think we just need to figure out what we need to figure out and do what we have to do.”
Ruto stated that the international community must work together to resolve the Russia-Ukraine conflict.
“We should sort out this situation and put it behind us, climate change is already a bigger problem, blame games won’t help,” he said.
On February 24, Russia invaded Ukraine.
Food insecurity and rising living costs have been blamed on the Russia-Ukraine conflict, with prices of food commodities, fuel, and other basic necessities steadily rising.
During his campaigns, Ruto promised to lower the price of unga, which is currently sold for Sh230.
Concerning the famine and food insecurity situation in Somalia, Ruto stated that he is willing to collaborate with the new leadership to address the issues.
“Somalia is a difficult land to crack; we look forward to working with Somalia’s newly elected president to square out the challenges in the country and enable Somalia to address its security concerns,” he said.
