07 June 2014, 10:29
Nairobi - Mukurwe-ini MP Kabando wa Kabando says the Jubilee government is being held captive by cartels, which is affecting its overall performance.
In a statement Friday, the MP urged president Uhuru Kenyatta to take care of the mess being created by the cartels, saying they would lead to the coalition's downfall in the next general elections.
He named the problems at hand, such as the single sourcing of tenders as well as the airlifting of presidential speeches as regrettable and urged a swift change.
" The move to advertise tenders to airlift presidential speeches is a regrettable but in the end silly move meant to defraud taxpayers, he said.
He also termed the move to hand Safaricom a KES 15 billion surveillance tender without the aid of a bidding process as untimely and unacceptable.
" Single sourcing a tender in this day and age is ridiculous and adds to the several mistakes that have blighted the government which in truth are self inflicted, he added.
He believes that if nothing is done soon, the government may struggle to gain re-election in 2017.
" The brokers and cartels that have taken charge of the government threaten to harm re-election prospects in 2017, which is unfortunate.
