Raila wrong to blame Pres­i­dent for graft, Uhuru has done his part – MP Ka­manda

The Star (Kenya) - - Counties -

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.
