The Amani National Congress (ANC) Party leader Hon. Musalia Mudavadi has asked the government to freeze all Public-Private Partnerships (PPP), because of corruption.
The ANC leaders says that management of of public finance and assets is in dissaray and the government seems to know know what to do.
‘It is becoming increasingly clear that management of public finance and public assets in the country is in a state of disarray. These past few days alone, Kenyans have been treated to mutually contradictory official explanations of what could be happening to their finances, with regard to purported procurement to construct dams in various parts of the country,’ Mudavadi wrote
Mudavadi lamented that people in government can steal money meant for development of Kenya’s poorest areas and sit easy. In a comment that is likely directed at DP Ruto over the Kimwarer and Arror dams scandal, the ANC leader did not mince his words.
‘Those parts of the country that require facilities like water dams are – without exception – homes to some of the poorest people in the country. It requires a most stonehearted individual to sit well with his conscience after using such poor people as the excuse to plunder the country’. Worse still is that such individuals would still have the temerity to stand before the world and attempt to give comical “explanations of what happened”, he stated.
The former presidential candidate went on to list other scandals that have happened under Uhuru’s watch, warning him (Uhuru) that in the end, ‘attempts to dispose off of public assets cannot be trusted’.
Mudavadi charged that corruption at the National Government level has embolden similar corrupt characters at the counties.
On the planned merger between Kenya Airways (KQ) and Kenya Airports Authority (KAA), Mudavadi said that the Jubilee regime is not being truthful and called for the details of the merger be made public.
The press release issued yesterday (7th March, 2019), vehemently opposed the planned takeover of Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) by KQ. Mudavadi noted that KQ has been resuscitated many times ‘only for it to sink into fresh waters of plunder by later managers and their principles’.
Regretting the mistreatment of airport workers during the recent strike, Mudavadi stated that the government had ignored calls for dialogue by Kenya Aviation Workers Union (KAWU) Secretary General Moses Ndiema and instead went on to ‘brutalise’ them when they went on strike. He called for the dismissal of people involved.

The 4 paged statement brought out other issues to do with Kenya Ports Authority (KPA), Direct flights to the US (which Kenya risks losing owing to the mismanagement at the airports) and elections.

On KPA, he says the government is brewing another avenue for collapse of the public instituition. He termed the formation of the new outfit Kenya National Shipping Line as a scheme to hand over KPA to unnamed European cartels and promised to stop that from happening.
‘…this wicked goal. We are watching you. And we will stop you. We call upon all Kenyans to be vigilant as our port is about to go’, he said
The country has been treated to a litany of scandals running into billion of shillings this past weeks.
