'Economic crisis reports a creation of opposition'

05 November 2015, 13:30 Joseph Njung'eh

Nyeri - Members of Parliament affiliated to Jubilee coalition have been warned against castigating President Uhuru Kenyatta and his Deputy William Ruto in public.

Nyeri Governor, Nderitu Gachagua has said President Kenyatta should not be blamed for all malpractices and irregularities happening in government departments.

“Jubilee MPs should be defending the President not teaming up with opposition to criticize him,” said Gachagua.

However, Gachagua urged the President to sack non-performing and scandalous Cabinet Secretaries.

Recently, Mukurweini MP Kabando wa Kabando launched scathing attacks on President Kenyatta saying his Cabinet was made of corrupt and incompetent officials and ought to be dissolved.

Kabando added that the Jubilee government was a captive of graft merchants.

Speaking in Nyeri town, however, Gachagua stated that the President was working for development of the country adding that he has shown zero tolerance to graft.

“The President is doing his best and he cannot be blamed. Cabinet Secretaries facing various allegations should carry the blame. We have constitutional institutions which should deal some issues like corruption,” he explained.

He further accused the media of creating a perception that Kenya’s economy was at standstill.

Gachagua said Kenya’s economy was growing and that the economic crisis reports were a creation of the opposition.

“We have economic challenges like any other country but the media is exaggerating it. Development projects are going on as expected. Devolution is in good pace. No indications of economic crisis in Kenya,” Gachagua stated.
