Raila says jubilee’s development track record below average

By KBC Reporters 

CORD leader Raila Odinga has criticized the government’s scorecard saying there is nothing to be proud of.

Raila who was in Maralal said the development track record of the jubilee administration was below average claiming all development projects initiated by the Kibaki regime have been abandoned halfway.

Raila claimed the Jubilee government had failed to deliver on its promises and should not be trusted.

The CORD leader now wants the government to come out and tell the country what it has really done. The opposition has been accusing the government of heightening corruption, tribalism and intimidation.

The opposition has claimed that Thursday’s State of the Nation address by President Uhuru Kenyatta was a public relations exercise aimed at covering up the failures in government.

Elsewhere, Homa Bay Senator Moses Kajwang has defended the move by a section of ODM legislators to cause chaos in parliament that interrupted the state of the nation address by President Uhuru Kenyatta during a joint parliamentary sitting onThursday.

Kajwang says that the legislators decided to whistle blow after the house speaker Justine Muturi ignored their calls for a point of order to get some clarifications before the president’s speech.

Speaking to KBC Friday morning, the Homa bay senator said among the clarifications was whether Deputy president’s one and half hour session at the Kenya National Theatre where he updated the nation on the achievements of the Jubilee administration over the last  three years   was another state of nation address.

While commending the government for highlighting some issues on developments, Kajwang faulted the jubilee government for failing to meet a number of its manifesto pledges.

Kajwang further accused the president for allegedly failing to address issues of corruption especially at the national level, the high cost of living that affects the common mwananchi, as well as unemployment to the youths.

Kajwang was among the eight opposition legislators that were ejected from parliament.

Others were Fred Outa Nyando, Opiyo Wandayi Ugunja, Millie Odhiambo Mbita, Simba Arati Dagoreti North John Mbadi Suba, and Tom Kajwang Ruaraka.
