Musyimi says health sector is a failure
13 June 2012, 00:03
Presidential candidate Mutava Musyimi has blamed the Government over the total failure of the ailing health sector in the country.
Musyimi lamented that despite the health ministry being held by two cabinet ministers (Public Health Ministry of Beth Mugo) and Medical Services of Anyang’ Nyong’o), the sector is still not benefiting Kenyans as many expected.
The Gachoka MP who was speaking in Nyeri County said many women and children are still suffering for lack of medication.
“There is still a big problem in the health sector despite having two ministries in charge of health sector. Mothers and children are still suffering,” he said.
Musyimi promised that once elected as the Head of State, he will help improve the sector.
The presidential hopeful who was accompanied by DP party Nyeri County branch chairman Esau Kioni was speaking at Green Hills hotel in Nyeri town where he met 45 DP party delegates from Nyeri and Laikipia Counties ahead of the August 10 National Delegates Conference.
“I’m ready to take over the mantle from President Kibaki so that I can ensure good governance and improve infrastructure. Kenyans want tribe of actions and not empty talk’s tribe,” added Musyimi who is the parliamentary committee chairman of Natural Resources.
Musyimi who was the former Secretary General of NCCK said the country also needs stronger economy, strong security, strong tourism and strong infrastructure among others which he will emphasize on if elected.
‘Kibaki has taught us politics of strong economy, strong governorship and what is left is to develop more universities, colleges and technical institutions,” he added.
He added that Youth Enterprise Funds must be channeled through the youth saccos and not commercial banks in order for the youth to create more jobs for themselves.
Musyimi is eyeing the party which he intend to use as a vehicle to State House.
He is expected to be endorsed as a presidential candidate during the National delegate’s conference to be held in August.
Kioni maintained that DP will field all candidates in the county levels.
