Focus on facts, State House boss tells Raila

Nairobi - A State House official has told CORD leader Raila Odinga to stop just criticising all the time and offer solutions to problems faced by Kenyans.
According to State House spokesman Manoah Esipisu, Rail has formed a habit of criticising everything the government is doing, sometimes unfairly.
Speaking to Raila, Manoah Esipisu said the fact that Odinga acknowledges the meetings is an indication they are doing something positive.
“We are not reporting blue prints but facts. He should pay attention,” the spokesman said at a press briefing.
He added that President Kenyatta uses the summits to gauge the progress of various ministries and learn how to seal gaps.
“When things are right, they criticise, when they are wrong, they still do it. What do they want?” he asked.
Last month, Mr Odinga said that Jubilee leaders were meeting at State House weekly to discuss how to win the 2017 General Election at the expense of initiating development.
But Mr Esipisu said the summits are relevant because they focus on problems and issues that affect the county and find solutions.
