Speaker Justin Mu­turi crit­i­cises Raila for op­pos­ing Ju­bilee de­vel­op­ment projects

The Star (Kenya) - - Politics General -

Cord leader Raila Odinga is politi­cis­ing the Itare wa­ter project in the Rift Val­ley to hood­wink the Kalen­jin into vot­ing for him, Na­tional As­sem­bly Speaker Justin Mu­turi has said. Raila is out to paint the Ju­bilee ad­min­is­tra­tion in bad light to win the com­mu­nity’s votes just be­cause he be­lieves DP Wil­liam Ruto de­serted him at the time of need in 2007, Mu­turi said. “Raila is des­per­ate and busy look­ing for loop­holes to win the vote-rich Rift Val­ley ahead of 2017 by ma­lign­ing Ju­bilee’s gov­er­nance at all costs. Oth­er­wise, why would one want to stop a project meant to ben­e­fit thou­sands of res­i­dents?” he asked. The Speaker said in­tim­i­da­tion will not stop Ju­bilee from im­ple­ment­ing projects. He spoke at the week­end at Sotik Sta­dium dur­ing a fundraiser. Mu­turi also drummed up sup­port for the Ju­bilee Party, Pres­i­dent Uhuru Keny­atta, Ruto and for Deputy Speaker Joyce La­boso, who wants to run for Bomet gov­er­nor.
