Activists call for Ndung’u resignation

Human rights activists took to the streets in Nairobi’s Central Business District calling for the resignation of the Central Bank governor, Dr. Njuguna Ndung’u.

The activists assembled at CFC Stanbic Bank, Kimathi branch, blocked the street as they chanted anti- Ndung’u slogans, and demanded for the closure of the bank. They alleged that, Dr. Ndung’u had collaborated with the bank to steal money from Kenyans.

Their spokesperson Mr. Sidi Ouma said that, CFC Stanbic Bank had made 70 billion shillings within two months by hiding the dollar, making the shilling to lose value, when this was discovered; it was fined 1 billion only. They also accused the government of neglecting public participation in economic matters, quoting Article 201 of the Constitution which allows the public to participate in such matters.

“The President re-appointed Ndung’u as the governor of the Central Bank without consulting the public. Ndung’u told a Parliamentary Committee that he did not ask for the job, thinking that he is the only Kenyan who qualifies for this position, time has come for him to leave.”  Ouma said.
From CFC Stanbic Bank, the activists matched to Co-operative Bank House, preaching the anti-Ndung’u gospel.

They accused Co-operative Bank of stealing from Kenyans by making 60 billion shillings in a month from high lending rates while they pay little or no interest to big sums of money deposited by Kenyans in the bank.

Election date

As they passed the President and the Prime Minister’s office, along Harambee Avenue, and the Parliament towards the Freedom Corner, they called for a 17, December 2012 election saying that they were tired of the Coalition Government, and that, more will be stolen from Kenyans by the time the alleged date of election reaches.

Mr. Cliford Ouma, an activist, said, “If Ndung’u does not resign and the election date changed to 17, December 2012, we will return to the ground and call for mass action this time.”
