President Kenyatta is a liar, says Raila Odinga

09 April 2016, 17:44 Arap Yego

Nairobi - Opposition Chief, Raila Odinga has rubbished Jubilee government track record for the last three years and accused President Uhuru Kenyatta of misleading Kenyans on his governments achievements.

The Cord leader on Saturday said President Kenyatta’s government has let down Kenyans and pointed out that the head of state has been lying to the public that he has kept his promises and that all is well.

Raila, who was speaking at a Nairobi Hotel, poked holes at the alleged government achievements for the last three years, noting that the public have been fed on lies about the state’s performances in various sectors.

“Since 2013 when Uhuru took power, everything that can go bad has gone bad. The happily ever after image that Jubilee is trying to portray is a plain lie,” said Raila, who was flanked by co-principals Kalonzo Musyoka and Senator Moses Wetang’ula.

Among the areas where Raila claimed the nation has been misled by President Kenyatta is on infrastructure, cost of living and food security.

On the KES 14 B Galana-Kulalu Food Security irrigation scheme project that is among the flagship projects of the administration he said the following:

“The project is now officially a scandal. It was launched even after experts questioned the wisdom of growing maize under irrigation. In the end the project produced only 10 bags per acre rather than the targeted 40, 90kgs per acre. After KES 7B was sunk in the project, it is now a failure.”

Concerning the Promise to improve the rail network to upgrade the links between major cities and building a new standard Gauge Railway (SGR) from Mombasa, Raila termed the project a fraud.

“The only rail infrastructure project Jubilee has to show is the SGR. The only thing it has done to the SGR project is to increase its cost from KES 220 B to KES 327B after locomotives, passenger cabins and wagons were included. The cost later rose to KES 447B to cater for land acquisition, loan insurance and processing fees," said Raila.
