ANC leader pledges to heal economy if elected president

Amani National Congress leader Musalia Mudavadi and his Chama Cha Mashinani party counterpart Isaac Ruto took their vote-seeking forays to Narok County where they hit out at the Jubilee government for bringing the economy to its knees.

Both leaders criticised the Uhuru Kenyatta administration, saying it has borrowed more than what President Kibaki borrowed in 10 years but it had nothing to show for it.

Mr Musalia said one of Nasa government’s first priorities would be to mitigate the financial crisis caused by Jubilee.

The two, who held separate rallies in Narok town, accused the government of plotting to increase taxes to bridge a possible financing gap of sh1 trillion in its proposed 2.6 trillion budget.

Mr Ruto accused President Kenyatta’s administration of dictatorship and “looting of the economy”.

Mr Mudavadi was accompanied by his deputy Kipruto arap Kirwa, while Mr Ruto was with Emurua Dikirr MP Johana Ngeno and his Narok West counterpart Patrick Ntutu.
