Miguna Miguna Rubbishes President Uhuru’s “No Mercy” Warning to Public Fund Looters

April 25, 2018

President Uhuru Kenyatta on Tuesday vowed to support devolution in a speech delivered to the devolution conference in Kakamega through a video link.

In his speech, the President warned that he will have no mercy on officials who loot public funds.

“The only way to ensure the ‘Big Four’ agenda succeeds is through leadership, not politics and corruption,” he said.

The President said corruption is an individual act that knows no tribe, religion or class or and declared his government will deal firmly with those who steal.

“There is no collective guilt. Those who steal should be ready to carry their individual crosses. There will be no hiding behind cocoons, whether religious or tribal because you stole alone,” said the Head of State.

The President further called on governors to work together with his administration to ensure the ‘Big Four’ agenda succeeds.

But hours after Uhuru’s address, self-styled NRM General Miguna Miguna downplayed the President’s warning.

Taking to his Twitter page on Tuesday evening, Miguna implied that Uhuru’s father, the late Mzee Jomo Kenyatta, gained his wealth through corruption.

“When your father Jomo left Kapenguria, he didn’t even have a bachelor’s apartment in Dagoretti Corner, where he was born. His first vehicle was bought by Tom Mboya. Yet in 15 years he had become a Land Mogul and wealth. @UKenyatta, try another one,” read Miguna’s Tweet.

The tweet attracted mixed reactions from Kenyans on Twitter, with some praising Miguna for telling the “truth.”
