Kibera residents burn Waiguru projects for 'insulting' Raila

23 June 2015, 12:11 William Korir

Nairobi - Residents of Kibera slums burnt to the ground projects started by Devolution CS Ann Waiguru as the war of attrition between her and CORD leader Raila Odinga continued.

The residents torched down clinics and sanitary facilities put up by the National Youth Service NYS and vandalized water tanks and pipes, in what is linked to war of words between facing the Devolution CS and CORD leader Raila Odinga.

Police were forced to watch from a distance as the youths blocked major roads leading to the slum. They could also be heard chanting anti-government slogans.

" Waiguru must go, Waiguru must go!!," they chanted.

The scenes followed Monday’s street demonstrations by a group that appeared to support the CS while castigating CORD leader Raila Odinga who has been criticising Waiguru over corruption at the NYS.

Raila had called on Waiguru to resign over massive corruption at the NYS, totalling to KES 826 million, which Waiguru had claimed she actually saved the organization from losing.

The burning of the facilities, meant to help the residents of one of Africa's biggest slums though, was a sad scene, one which Kenyans on social media quickly castigated.

" This is sad. They are burning things meant to help improve their lives; politics indeed kills," Onyango Onyino, a former Kibera resident said on Facebook.

The government is yet to comment on the unrest in Kibera but Deputy President William Ruto, speaking Monday called on Kenyans to let go of divisive politics.

" The government is here to build the country. I urge Kenyans to shun leaders who are working to kill that spirit and politicize everything," he stated in Narok.

Odinga himself has yet to comment on the unrest in Kibera.
