Speaking in an interview with Citizen TV, Nairobi County Senator Hon Edwin Sifuna has rubbished the claims that subsidies that were introduced by the former president Uhuru Kenyatta to help kenyans against the hard life was meant to benefit the cartels. He alleged that kenyans were relieved unlike now they are experiencing very tough times. Edwin Sifuna went ahead to reveal that a person at Mukuru kwa njenga will not know whether there were cartels but knows that the price of unga was low. He alleged that the government should stop the slideshow and help kenyans to fight the high cost of living.

He added that the Kenya Kwanza government promised kenyans that they will first deal with economic crisis but instead they subjected them to very tough situation. He accused them of increasing tax and cost of basic commodities instead of helping Kenyans against them despite promising.

He also accused them of increasing borrowing despite them criticizing the former regime for excessive borrowing. He added that they should stick to their earlier position of reducing borrowing and high cost of living.
