Kibaki backs Uhuru, admonishes Raila

03 August 2015, 18:31 William Korir

Nairobi - In a rare show of political opinion, retired President Mwai Kibaki has backed President Uhuru Kenyatta and at the same time told off CORD leader Raila Odinga.

Speaking that the Starehe Boys Centre over the weekend, Kibaki told off Raila and other opposition leaders for engaging in empty talk to try derail the current government.

" Time for empty talk is gone. They should let the President continue with the good job he is doing and let those who are speaking speak till eternity," he said.

Uhuru who was at the event ignored political talk and instead focused on the theme of the day, the Starehe Founders Day.

Kibaki stated that he was satisfied with the current government and urged Kenyans to support it.

" I ask Kenyans to cooperate where needed and show support to the government as it seeks to deliver on its goals," he added.

The opposition has in recent times raised issues over a report by the Auditor General asking to be informed on the existence of a KES 66 billion hole in government spending.

The money has yet to be accounted for and according to opposition chiefs, needs to.

" No one is asking for gold. All we want is for the government to declare where the money is," CORD co-principal Kalonzo Musyoka said over the weekend.

Also under pressure has been the government over the issues related to national carried Kenya Airways which last week declared losses of KES 25.6 billion for the year 2014.
