The Money Should Have Been Used For Agriculture, Kithure Kindiki Talks About Nairobi Expressway

Tharaka Nithi senator Kithure Kindiki has said that the Nairobi Expressway was an unfortunate expenditure. First, Kithure Kindiki decried the amount spent on the project. He said that Mwai Kibaki had earlier projected that the road would cost Sh 16 billion. Kindiki could not understand why the project ended up costing Sh 87 billion.

Kinduke went ahead to call the project a corruption pit. He said that from an economic standpoint it is a useless trickle down vanity project. Kindiki alluded that the extended cost was meant for corruption kickbacks.

According to Kindiki, the road could never have been constructed in the first place. He said that money should have been invested in agriculture. He says that an injection of Sh 87 billion to the agricultural sector would have seen the country's GDP grow by 10%. Kindiki added that the money was enough to eradicate poverty in Kenya in just 3 years.
