LUGARI Mp Cyrus Jirongo has lashed out at Prime-Minister Raila Odinga following contents spilled out in a book published by a former adviser to the PM Miguna Miguna.
Jirongo said that following the revelations made in the book, Raila can no longer claim to be as clean as he claims and challenged the PM to respond to the allegations leveled against him by his former adviser.
Addressing teachers from Bungoma County during the homecoming party for Bungoma Central Kenya National Union of Teachers [KNUT] Executive-Secretary Fredrick Sichangi at Sikusi village, Jirongo urged Kenyans to critically look into the past of all those who have declared their interest to lead this country.
“I am shocked that while some of the presidential contenders have claimed of the coming race being a two-horse race, they still have a lot of explanations to make because they are not as clean as they would want us to believe,” said Jirongo.
He added that Miguna’s book that has been serialized in the press has exposed the real culprits behind the maize theft and other scandals that have been reported from the PM’s office yet Raila has been calling himself a reformist.
Jirongo said that his presidency will ensure fairness for all Kenyans and urged Kenyans to support his bid as it is meant to ensure people at the grassroots easily access state resources.
The Mp reiterated his earlier claims that some of those aspiring for the presidency of this country are merely being prepared by those who are already in power to ensure that the status quo is maintained.
Without mentioning names, Jirongo urged Kenyans to vote for leaders who will be accountable to them instead of electing those who will end up being answerable to powerful people in the current government.
“Elect a president whom you have prepared yourself but not one who has been prepared for you because that will not be a people’s president,” charged the Mp.
Jirongo has of late been at loggerheads with Deputy Prime-Minister Musalia Mudavadi and State House with claims that Mudavadi is a state house project, claims that the latter has vehemently denied.
