Stop dragging Uhuru’s name into graft scandals, Ndile tells Raila
Former Kibwezi MP Kalembe Ndile has accused Coalitions for Reforms and Democracy (CORD) Principle Raila Odinga of being hypocritical in faulting President Uhuru Kenyatta’s government over corruption allegations.
Ndile said the Opposition chief – who has over the past few months blown the lid on numerous graft scandals involving the Jubilee administration – is accusing Uhuru of inaction, yet he did not crack the whip on corruption when he was part of government.
Ndile alleged that Raila had insider knowledge of corruption on the government because he is involved in the rot.
“Raila knows who is stealing because he was part of it before,” said Kalembe.
Ndile also faulted Raila for dragging Uhuru’s name into scandals, arguing that the president busies himself with development agendas.
“If anything happens, you blame the president. The president is the commander in chief. He is busy with Somalia and Southern Sudan in international business,” said Ndile.
Shifting the blame for rampant graft to the justice system, Ndile said the Judiciary has failed in bringing corrupt individuals to book.
“Our courts have been overwhelmed with their work. They have been unable to fight corruption,” added Ndile.
Ndile’s remarks come in the wake of the Afya House Scandal, where the government has been accuse of looting cash meant to treat the sick.
The Opposition has sensationally claimed that members of the President’s family and his close friends were beneficiaries of the scam.
Kathleen Kihanya, a cousin of President Uhuru Kenyatta whose company (Sundales International Limited) was paid 41 million shillings said the deal, has denied accusations of irregular dealings with the ministry of health.
