Twelve MPs from Cen­tral have crit­i­cised Cord leader Raila Odinga and his sup­port­ers for link­ing Pres­i­dent Uhuru Keny­atta to the Sh5.2 bil­lion Mafya House saga.

Limuru MP John Ki­ragu said the op­po­si­tion should present its queries to the in­sti­tu­tions man­dated to fight cor­rup­tion or the po­lice.

He said it is un­re­al­is­tic for the op­po­si­tion to ask Uhuru to re­sign, say­ing he has shown in­ter­est in fight­ing cor­rup­tion in all min­istries.

“We have seen some of the CSs and PSs in­volved in scan­dals taken to court. Raila and his team should mind what they say,” Ki­ragu said.

He spoke at Thi­gio Pri­mary School, where he hosted 11 MPs in a thanks- giv­ing ser­vice for the com­mis­sion­ing of the Mu­tarakwa-Thigo-Kikuyu road. The MPs were Fer­di­nard Waititu (Ka­bete), Jude Njomo (Ki­ambu), Kigo Njenga (Gatundu North), Ki­mani Ichung’wa (Kikuyu), Maina Ka­manda (Sterehe), Mburu Ka­hangara (Lari), Moses Kuria ( Gaundu South) and Sa­muel Gichigi of Kip­ipiri.

Also present were Alice Ng’ang’a (Ruiru Town), Paul Koinange (Ki­ambaa) and Stephen Kar­iuki (Mathare).

MCAs Nel­son Munga (Ndeiya) and Njenga Mu­rugami (Limuru Cen­tral) were in at­ten­dance.

Roads and In­fra­struc­ture PS John Mosonik was also present.

Ka­hangara said the op­po­si­tion is only try­ing to tar­nish the Ju­bilee govern­ment’s name ahead of the gen­eral elec­tion.

“We are warn­ing Kenyans not to be mis­led,” he said.
