The head of the opposition, Raila Odinga, has said that the government has broken some of the commitments made to Kenyans during the election campaign.
Odinga drew attention to the fact that the government has yet to reduce the cost of petrol and other necessities that President Ruo had promised to do so as soon as he took office.
Odinga claims that the government has also altered its mind over the funds that were promised to the “hustlers” at no interest.
“A Ksh.50 billion interest-free fund and an additional Ksh.100 billion for women were promised. However, they are presently modifying their language. No money will be released without paying interest, they are now saying. They promised to lower the price of fuel and unga as soon as they took office, but now they’re asking for a year “Odinga remarked.
Speaking at Mama Philemona Mutelwa, mother of Kakamega Governor Fernandes Barasa, in Mumias, the leader of the Azimio coalition party.
He also criticized the administration for what he described as acting unilaterally on taxation issues without consulting the public.
