NAIROBI, Kenya, Jan 6 – State House communication directors have assured the country that all electoral promises by the Jubilee Government are firmly on course with focus on national security, economic governance, war on graft and infrastructure development.

A statement to newsrooms accuses the Opposition of turning a blind eye to the government’s achievements by their continued criticism without providing solutions.

“ODM continues to be a closed, parochial, tribal, violent, repressive cult of personality overhung with the menacing spectre of wanton chaos. Its grassroots nominations are deadly fiascos and its leaders predatory and feckless as ever. Wiper is contending with apathy in its strongholds and fatigue over its severe deficiency of vision and credible development agenda,” reads the statement.

According to the PSCU directors, the Opposition is guilty of the most accusations it has been raising against the government, more so graft, in a direct attack directed to the three CORD principals.

“The entire CORD leadership is hobbled by corruption of the past and kleptomaniac fantasies. Led by Raila Odinga, Kalonzo Musyoka and Moses Wetang’ula, they are projecting their venal proclivities and penchant for abuse of office on the Jubilee leadership,” it reads.

“All we can learn from their recent tirades is that the Opposition brigade expects public office to be an opportunity to loot, and imagines that government is doing so with official sanction.”

They challenged Odinga to address issues facing his coalition first, if he was sincere about the war against graft.

“It must never be forgotten that the Kisumu Molasses Plant was a government parastatal intended to inject economic development in Nyanza, when it was thoroughly impoverished under the Odinga dynasty’s leadership.”

Odinga had accused the Government of using embezzled funds to fundraise but the Government refutes the claims saying it’s only a show of generosity and being philanthropic.

“Odinga notoriously exploits the generosity of others, but can never be moved, by plight or might, to part with a shilling for a worthy cause.”
