National Assembly Speaker Justin Muturi has expressed his displeasure with other presidential hopefuls sympathetic to individuals facing graft charges.
Muturi who has announced intention to go for the top seat on a DP ticket come 2022 said that it’s unfortunate for some aspirants to be playing turncoat politics by declaring that they will fight corruption should they get elected yet they are inviting the corrupt into their fold.
“Voters should be wary of presidential aspirants entertaining individuals with serious graft charges because this is enough prove that theft of public resources will continue should they get elected,” Muturi said.
The Speaker said there is need to tame corruption in this county terming it as the biggest enemy to our country.
Muturi spoke today while in Kabiru-ini show grounds in Nyeri County where he and other DP party officials met with a section of grassroots leaders as he continues with his consultative forums in preparedness to launch his presidential bid.
The presidential aspirant at the same time dismissed political leaders trivialising some political parties at the expense of popularising those they lead.
The Speaker said this while defending DP, his party of choice insisting that it is one of the oldest parties in the country and has retained both national outlook and appeal since the days of retired President Mwai Kibaki.
While calling for Mt Kenya region political unity he urged people to consider DP as their party of choice for them to remain relevant at national level even after the forthcoming general elections
Muturi said that he has had experience as National Assembly’s speaker where even elected members fail to have a voice for not belonging to known and established political parties.
