‘Send all sitting MPs home for letting down common mwananchi’ – Jimmy Wanjigi
Businessman and presidential hopeful Jimmy Wanjigi has urged Kenyans to vote out all members of parliament for failing to protect them from the current tough economic times.
During a meeting with business leaders in Ruiru, Kiambu County, Wanjigi asked Kenyans to join forces and send the current crop of members of parliament home in the upcoming elections.
“I ask Kenyans to join forces to send all current MPs home for disappointing the common man,” he added.
Wanjigi showed his discontent with the Members of Parliament for failing to mitigate skyrocketing commodity prices.
“These are signs of government failure, and we cannot blame the Executive alone, but Parliament cannot disassociate itself from the current economic turmoil, especially on skyrocketing fuel prices,” Wanjigi said.
Wanjigi further accused lawmakers of failing to defend Kenyan rights by amending the energy act, which abolished free market.
“The parliamentarians got us in the current mess by amending the Energy Act of 2019, which abolished the free market under President Mwai Kibaki’s regime which now allows racketeering to benefit at the expense of Kenyans,” Wanjigi said.
Wanjigi further scolded the government saying it has failed Kenyans as he cited low fuel prices in neighbouring Uganda, Tanzania and Ethiopia respectively.
