Kalonzo plays down Uhuru’s project launches

Mr Musyoka, who was accompanied by National Super Alliance leaders Musalia Mudavadi, Mr Moses Wetang’ula, Machakos gubernatorial candidate Wavinya Ndeti, her running mate Peter Mathuki and Mavoko MP Patrick Makau, also dismissed the launch of a water project at Kyuso Market in Mwingi last week.

Wiper deputy presidential candidate Kalonzo Musyoka has played down the launch of projects by President Uhuru Kenyatta and Deputy President William Ruto in Ukambani, dismissing them as “insincere”.

At a rally in Matuu a day after the President and the DP campaigned in the same area after launching construction of Matuu-Ekalakala road, Mr Musyoka said some of the projects had not been factored in the national budget.

‘INITIATED PROJECT’

He said he was the one who initiated the project after negotiations with the Italian Government.

“Let Jubilee commission projects instead of launching them because some are not even factored in the budget,” he said.

“The rehabilitation of Yatta canal and Yatta Dam were conceived by the grand coalition government, in which I was vice-president.”

He laughed off calls by the Jubilee leadership to abandon Nasa.

Mr Musyoka said Jubilee was planning to rig the August 8 elections and urged residents to turn up early at voting stations “to guard against ballot stuffing”.

Mr Mudavadi said Nasa was determined to transform the country’s economy, adding that there was no dignity for a man who could not feed his family because food prices were out of reach.
