Ngilu: Like it or not, Kenyans love me
09 February 2015, 13:58
Nairobi - Lands Cabinet Secretary Charity Ngilu says that Kenyans love her and that she wont resign from her position because she would be letting the public down.
Ngilu has been under pressure from various places to quit following the recent incidences of land grabbing in the country, as well as unresolved land cases.
The most recent call for Ngilu's resignation was from Constitution Implementation Commision CIC chair Charles Nyachae who said that the CS was sleeping on the job.
Speaking Monday though, Ngilu said that she is confident that she is doing the right job and that Kenyans love her for what she has so far done for the country.
She also says that resigning is out of the question for her and that she would have let Kenyans down by doing so.
" I will not resign. Not at all. I have no reason to," she said Monday at her office.
" I believe that I have done a good job and Kenyans have approved that. They love me and have seen the changes effected at the Ministry since I came in."
" More Kenyans have solved their land issues since I came into office and so I am happy and they are happy. Why should I resign?," she posed.
Ngilu has been accused by MPs of blockading matters at the lands ministry in a slow pace and not effectively handling land grabbing and irregular allocation of properties.
The CIC on the other hand accused Ngilu and her National Lands Commision counterpart Mohammed Swazuri of poor productivity and asked that they be sacked.
Ngilu has also in recent times been embroiled in land grabbing incidences in Karen and Lamu, both of which to date, no action has been taken on the alleged perpetrators.
" They have wasted 2 years of Kenyans time. Tell me, since they came to office, what much has been achieved by them?," Swazuri spoke of Ngilu and Swazuri.
