Ignore political detractors, Nakuru MP tells DP, Waiguru

A cross section of Bahati leaders in Nakuru has criticized the latest corruption rating opinion poll by IPSOS synovate.

Led by area MP Kimani Ngunjiri, the leaders say that the polls were well orchestrated politically to malign some leaders and paint them in bad light.

Ngunjiri who spoke in Nakuru town on Friday said that whereas the Uhuru-Raila hand shake was meant to bring national unity, some politicians were taking advantage of it to malign others with a view to scoring political goals.

“Tom Wolf should authenticate the interviewees in the polls if at all the research was authentic and credible” said Ngunjiri.

While calling on Deputy president William Ruto and Kirinyaga governor Anne Waiguru to forge ahead with their development agenda, Kimani said that those who think they will score politically by painting others in bad light will only have themselves to blame in 2022 as the common mwananchi will make the final decision come elections time.

On the proposed taxation of fuel products come September 1st, Kimani said that he is opposed to the move adding that it will translate to heavy burden to “Wanjiku”.

He said that there are so many economic problems affecting the common mwananchi and as such it would only be prudent to ensure that the cost of living is lowered.

And given the proposal by IMF to have banks enjoy independence on interest rates, the lawmaker said that MPs must stand by the common mwananchi and ensure that the law remains as it is since giving banks the freedom to increase and lowered interest rates at will translates to oppressing Kenyans.
