Jubilee failed in 2015, must improve, Mudavadi says

01 January 2016, 15:56 William Korir

Nairobi - The Jubilee government failed in 2015 and must seriously improve come 2016, Amani National Congress ANC leader Musalia Mudavadi has said.

Mudavadi feels that Kenyans were badly let down by the government in the just ended year and hopes that there will be bigger effort put in place to ensure that better is done in the new year.

He spoke as he relayed his new year message to Kenyans.

" The New Year, should be a period of reflection on the type of leaders required to steer the country to prosperity after 2017," he said.

" The government’s appetite for “mega-projects” as ordinary Kenyans are being hit hard in the pocket through increased taxes, was a failure as well as an avenue for corruption by a few well-connected government officials," he stated.

Mudavadi said attempts to weaken the office of the Auditor General, was one of the ways the government, through a pliant legislature, and was bent on furthering the culture of corruption.

" Lifestyle audits that are made public as a way of dealing with corruption in government," he insisted.

He also continued that there was serious need for reforms in electoral bases as well as the health sector.

" The spiraling fortunes in the health and education sectors has been hampered by government holding on to functions and resources that were meant to have been devolved and the former, to mistreatment of teachers by failure to award them a pay rise," he pointed.

He also called for an end to calls for a referendum to change the state of the Constitution, terming it needless and a vile political statement.

" There is also need for electoral reforms heading into 2017, but calls for a referendum to change the constitution will likely polarize the country ahead of the elections, since they are being driven by political competition than need to improve the existing legal framework," he finished.
