Kenya needs divine lead­er­ship and I’m the man to tackle graft, says Ab­dudba

The Star (Kenya) - - Counties Western -

Pres­i­den­tial hope­ful Ab­duba Dida yes­ter­day said he is best placed to end cor­rup­tion.

The for­mer pres­i­den­tial can­di­date said Kenya’s big­gest prob­lem is cor­rup­tion. Dida spoke on Mon­day in Mu­mias town af­ter open­ing the Al­liance for Real Change of­fice at Bulimbo in Matungu, Kakamega county.

Dida is a for­mer teacher of English lit­er­a­ture and re­li­gion. He plans to tour the coun­try to drum up sup­port. “The coun­try lacks divine lead­er­ship. Those en­trusted with lead­er­ship do not value hu­man­ity and lack ca­pac­ity to ad­just to the think­ing en­vi­sioned in the Con­sti­tu­tion. They don’t un­der­stand what God wants from them,” Dida said.

He said money meant to ben­e­fit all Kenyans is stolen un­der the purview of highly con­nected in­di­vid­u­als. “It is shame­ful peo­ple still die for lack of med­i­ca­tion and equip­ment in health fa­cil­i­ties,” Dida said.
