Raila wrong to blame President for graft, Uhuru has done his part – MP Kamanda
Starehe MP Maina Kamanda hit out at Cord leader Raila Odinga over remarks that President Uhuru Kenyatta’s administration has failed to fight graft. He said Raila has failed to fight corruption in his party and does not have the moral authority to criticise Uhuru on graft. “The President has done his part. We cannot blame the President if independent agencies fail to do their work,” Kamanda said. The MP asked Nairobi Governor Evans Kidero’s administration to accommodate hawkers, saying the street vendors cannot be completely kicked out of the CBD. He said the police should not be used to harass hawkers. Kamanda spoke yesterday in the Pumwani Sports Ground during Mashujaa Day celebrations. At the same event, county secretary Robert Ayisi said Nairobi will carry out a Sh300 billion housing project to put up more than 100,000 housing units. He said the county also plans to improve water and sewerage services.
