  • Kiharu MP Ndindi Nyoro took a swipe at President Uhuru Kenyatta's governance on November 15, 2019.

    Nyoro, who confirmed to The Standard that he had not been invited to a meeting called by the president at Sagana State Lodge, wished retired President Mwai Kibaki a happy birthday and made a thinly veiled attack on President Kenyatta's administration. 

    He took to social media to contrast the success of the country's economy under Kibaki and Uhuru.

    "The best president of Kenya thus far, economically speaking. All action no talk. The fruits of his great planning of the economy are evident to date" a Facebook post from Nyoro read.

    "Most assets the common mwananchi have were acquired during his reign, the economy was booming and velocity of money was high," he added.

    Nyoro, in his message, commended the former president for his prowess in, public debt management, a matter President Kenyatta's administration is struggling with. 

    The Kiharu legislator further rounded up the domestic and foreign debts Kenya has incurred. According to Nyoro, in 2002, public debt was Ksh 600 billion. In 2012 when Kibaki left office, it was at Ksh 1.2 trillion and by 2019, it had risen to Ksh 6 trillion.

    "We love you President Mzee Mwai Kibaki. Wishing you a happy birthday and many more years," Nyoro concluded.
