The azimio la umoja campaign board Chairman Nderitu Muriithi has sought to explain to Kenyans the real reasons why most kenyans are struggling economically.
In his article appearing on the Saturday standard, the former Laikipia governor opines that the high proportion of Kenyans struggling financially isn't necessarily as a result of poor policies by the former handshake regime as critics would like to put it.
He accused the current administration of taking advantage of the bad economic situation caused by COVID19 and imported inflation to incite Mount Kenya against jubilee.
Citing financial access report of 2021 which puts the number of adults reporting a health financial situation at 15 Percent down from 40 percent in 2016, he said it is easy to explain why mount Kenya people were angry at the government but now the anger was misplaced.
He urged the policy makers within the Kenya kwanza administration to stop finger pointing and instead reignite productivity besides the introduction of hustler fund that aims at improving financial inclusion.
"Real wages have been stagnant for a decade and a half. Interest and exchange rates are prices. Inflation is a measure of movement in prices. Finance is a facilitator or medium of exchange of goods and services. Productivity is the true source of wealth", said muriithi.
His sentiments come at a time when a number of Jubilee MPs who lost in the last general election are now warming up to Ruto Government.
