Miguna: Raila has weak credentials
21 September 2012, 11:01
The former Prime minister’s advisor Miguna Miguna yesterday criticized Raila Odinga saying he is not fit to be Kenyan fourth president owing to his weak credentials.
Speaking at Kamunde Hall in Meru town, the author of book Peeling Back the Mask alleged that the PM is corrupt and unclean hence he cannot qualify to head a nation.
“My former boss has been involved in Maize scandal where KES. 3billion was pocketed and at the same time Kazi kwa Vijana which was in the budget of KES. 17billion; so how can he qualify to succeed President Kibaki unless Kenyans are blind,” noted Miguna.
He reiterated that Raila among other presidential candidates contesting for the state house seat has no remarkable track records to qualify him to be the next president of Kenya.
“Since Raila was elected as the PM, he has nothing to show since he is only good at causing conflicts. And time has come to stop him from clinching to power since he is a liar and a selfish leader,” said Miguna.
He claimed that the leadership of the country needed to change from the past corrupt to a new one that has the mercy of the people at hand where he noted that Kenyans need to bring a new face of the government that is free from corruption and abuse of power.
“Kenya has been having the worst leadership system in the world and this has been brought up by corrupt, selfish and greedy leaders elected to power. We want a Country build on values and not individuals,” he added.
Miguna urged Kenyans to vote wisely and elect leaders based on track records and not on tribal lines.
“My book will be used as the vetting tool against Raila Odinga since what it bares is the naked truth and I am warning Kenyans against voting in leaders who have stolen from the public coffers if they don’t want to plunge this nation into a financial turmoil ” Miguna said.
“Working for Raila was a nightmare that's why I opted to resign since I noticed he cannot qualify to be a leader,” he lamented.
Addressing more than 2000 residents in a heavily guarded Hall, he called on leaders and politicians to respect the constitution to enhance democracy in the country.
“Kenyans need to be tolerant of each other, not fighting in order to embrace peace ahead of the general elections.”
He added that for any country to yield stability; honesty, truth and justice must be exercised and applied by all in a bid to build a respectable nation.
