Speaker of the National Assembly Justin Muturi has slammed ODM leader Raila Odinga for promising to provide jobless Kenyans a monthly stipend of shillings 6,000, claiming that people in the Mount Kenya region do not believe in free money.
Muturi stated that Raila's offer to youths will not be the solution to the country's poverty. He accused Mr Odinga of failing to inform Kenyans that the funds would be raised through taxes.
The Speaker, who has proclaimed his intention to run for President in next year's election, has appealed to Kenyans for their support. He added that if elected president,he will resurrect the economy.
He also added that he is the country's best bet, noting his record as Speaker of the National Assembly, and that he is a legitimate option to other leaders who have expressed interest in the top job.
He slammed politicians who claimed the Mt Kenya area couldn't produce the next president, claiming the region wasn't tired of being in charge of the country.
