Stop fighting the President, Kamanda tells legislators against lifestyle audit

Nominated MP Maina Kamanda has warned legislators who are against President Uhuru Kenyatta’s directive on a lifestyle audit for all public officers .

Kamanda, who is a former Starehe MP said that the MPs who are against the lifestyle audit are busy engaged in 2022 politics trying to deviate from the war against corruption.

The legislator divulged that there are Jubilee MPs who are trying to fight back the president in his effort to eradicate corruption which has marred various government agencies and departments.

Mistrust in the Jubilee Party he noted is posed by politicians who are against the President’s order on a lifestyle audit to all civil servants.

We know those who are trying to object to the directive on a lifestyle audit and we will not hesitate to name them if they will not change, noted Kamanda when he attended a burial in Mathioya Murang’a on Friday.

The country’s economy; he said is going down due to numerous scandals authored by public officers who end up looting public funds budgeted for the provision of services.

The MP said the corruption which has rocked the country is worrying and all leaders should back the president in his war against the vice.

Kamanda castigated politicians engaged in 2022 politics saying the campaigns may put the country into electioneering mood thus denying Kenyans conducive environment to venture in economic activities.

After the famed handshake between President Kenyatta and opposition leader Raila Odinga, we have experienced peace and calm making people to embark on their daily activities, he added.

In Nairobi, Kamanda who was accompanied by Mathioya MP Peter Kimari said they are totally against early campaigns.

Nairobians are always tensed during times of campaigns and let those busy engaging in 2022 politics stop and first work for the people who elected them, added the nominated MP.

He supported the call to change the constitution saying there is need to have an all inclusive government.

The constitution can be audited and changes be done where necessary especially in propagating for an all inclusive government, he noted adding that the law should direct all party primaries be conducted by Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC).

Kamanda said political party nominations in the country have been a big sham where the will of people is not respected thus the need the primaries to be conducted by IEBC.
