Odinga said that what matters is using the debt to invest rather than consumption.

"But the thing is, what do you do with the funds you borrow? We should borrow to invest because if you borrow for consumption, then your ability to repay becomes impaired," said Raila Odinga.Image

However, David Ndii refuted this answer. On his side he sees it different that the debt shouldn't be used to invest alone.

"My friend, if all the debt had been scrupulously invested in more mega-projects like the SGRs and Nairobi Expressways we would still be in a debt distress. In fact, it would be worse because at least consumption has a multiplier effect. I ask again who are Raila’s economists?" Wrote Ndii in his twitter page.
