BY LEONARD LIGAI,30TH JAN,2022-Speaker of the National Assembly Justin Muturi has challenged presidential aspirants to scrutinise their past and stop labelling their rivals thieves, noting that few can pass the test of integrity.
Muturi said some aspirants who are known to have bad track records in public office have been the ones shouting loudest, calling their competitors thieves.
Said Muturi: “We know them, we know what they did when they were in office, yet now they are shouting loudest calling others thieves.”
Muturi, who has declared his presidential ambition through the Democratic Party, told his fellow competitors to stop acting clean, yet Kenyans know their past.
He was addressing mourners at Mwenyenyi village in Nyamira County, where he attended the burial of Ben Momanyi, the brother of Borabu MP Benson Momanyi.
Muturi asked residents to vote for him in the presidential contest, noting that most of the competitors had tainted pasts.
Without naming any candidate, Muturi said: “We know those who were involved in the Kenya Embassy scandal in Tokyo, we know those who were in the cemetery scandal in Kajiado. All of them have serious issues so you may as well settle for Muturi.”
Muturi caused laughter as he said that even his original campaign slogan, Kenya Kwanza had been taken by a political rival.
“They even took my slogan, Kenya Kwanza. I will come up with Wakenya Mbele as my new slogan.”
The speaker also called on the government to improve the education sector and implement free edition at all levels of public institutions.
