Ju­bilee’s job ‘is to steal’ from the tax­pay­ers

The Star (Kenya) - - Counties Western -

The Ju­bilee gov­ern­ment’s job is to steal from tax­pay­ers, Mt El­gon MP John Serut has said.

Serut ac­cused Pres­i­dent Uhuru Keny­atta and Deputy Pres­i­dent Wil­liam Ruto of watch­ing graft es­ca­late in gov­ern­ment as Kenyans are robbed of mil­lions of shillings.

He said the most sad­den­ing part is that the money be­ing stolen is not Ju­bilee’s, but the cit­i­zens’.

“This money be­longs to wananchi, who are over­bur­dened by pay­ing taxes in ev­ery thing they do,” Serut said in his con­stituency at the week­end.

The MP urged Mt El­gon res­i­dents not to re­elect Uhuru and Ruto be­cause they have failed Kenyans by not hon­our­ing 2013 cam­paign prom­ises.

“Kenyans are tired of graft re­ports ev­ery now and then, start­ing with Eu­robond, NYS, stan­dard gauge rail­way, and now the Health docket’s al­leged ir­reg­u­lar­i­ties,” Serut said.

“At this rate, Ju­bilee lead­ers should come out clearly and tell Kenyans they have failed Kenyans ter­ri­bly.”

The MP urged res­i­dents not to al­low Ju­bilee get away with steal­ing.
