Thika town MP Alice Ng’ang’a has claimed that opposition leader Raila Odinga received sh 10 billion to sabotage President William Ruto’s government through unrest.
The MP claimed that known financiers and including a renonwed leader, whom she didn’t mention, have funded Raila to cause anarchy in the country through mass protests.
Ng’ang’a spoke at AIPCA Thika Cathedral on Sunday during the thanksgiving service for Trade Cabinet Secretary Moses Kuria. Other leaders present include Kiambu Governor Kimani Wamatangi, MPs Martha Wangari (Gilgil), Jane Kihara ( Naivasha), Patrick Munene (Chuka Igamba Ngombe), John Njuguna (Kiambaa), Geoffrey Wandeto (Tetu), Maina Karobia (EALA), Rahab Mukami (Nyeri) and Anne Muratha (Kiambu).
The MP claimed that the government is aware and has evidence of the transaction and where it was carried out adding that they even have photos of the ODM leader and his financiers.
“We know those financing him [Raila] to go and destroy our people’s businesses in Nairobi. They are Kikuyus like us and they have been in government.We are aware of the money that they gave him and where they did so. We even have their photos and if they continue with this we will reveal their names,” Ng’ang’a said.
She said that the financiers should come from their hideouts and declare their interests in the destabilization of the government and the country’s economy.
Her Naivasha counterpart Jane Kihara pointed an accusing finger to former President Uhuru Kenyatta saying that he is behind the mass demonstrations held by Azimio leaders and supporters.
“Uhuru should tell us where he stands in these protests. He should tell Kenyans who is behind the efforts to distract our President [Ruto] from delivering on his promises,” Kihara said.
The lawmakers however said that the mass protests will not bar them from working and delivering to Kenyans. They said that the Kenya Kwanza government has a clear plan on developing the country and lowering the cost of living.
Last week, opposition chief Raila Odinga announced that the demonstrations will be held on Monday and Thursday every week until the government toes to the line and reduced the cost of living.
