President Uhuru Kenyatta has been told to resign and relinquish his seat over the high cost of living in the country.
South Mugirango MP Manson Nyamweya says that the head of state has failed to address the skyrocketing prices of basic commodities such as sugar, milk and flour and thus should resign.
Nyamweya says Kenyan families are finding it hard to put a single meal on the table since the government has failed to provide measures to ensure that prices of basic food go down. “It is high time President Uhuru Kenyatta quits office because he has failed to address the high cost of living,” Nyamweya told the Star.
The Kenya National Congress leader added that the president’s advisors have been in deep sleep and have failed to predict and prevent the crisis that has affected Kenyans. “The President has all the experts who should advise him beforehand on challenges the country is facing before crises occur,” Nyamweya noted.
“It is so bad to task experts to come up with good policies but they are not implemented,” he added.
President Uhuru Kenyatta has attributed the high prices for commodities to the recent drought that hit several parts of the country affecting the food supply. In the Budget estimate proposed in Parliament in March, Treasury scrapped taxes on flour and bread in an effort to bring their prices down.
