State House Defends Top Civil Servants Campaigning for Jubilee

State House Spokesman Manoah Esipisu at a press briefing on Sunday defended Cabinet and Principal Secretaries campaigning for President Uhuru’s re-election, saying it is their duty to explain to Kenyans the progress the Jubilee administration has made.

“They have to account for the trillions of shillings in taxes collected from the Kenyan people and invested in infrastructure development and other services; and they have to account for the confidence invested in them by the Kenyan people…For us, it is really a question of accountability. It is precisely because public officers are speaking more that the country acknowledges that Kenya is irreversibly transforming,” Esipisu said.

Esipisu was responding to complaints from the opposition that top civil servants were engaging in active politics contrary to the law.

State House spokesman Dr. Manoa Esipisu at a press briefing on Sunday defended Cabinet and Principal Secretaries campaigning
for President Uhuru's re-election, saying, "...It is their duty to explain to Kenyans the progress the Jubilee administration has made."

Dr. Esipisu, Waswahili husema, "...Kizuri chajiuza, kibaya chajitembeza." The people of Kenya are smart enough to see for themselves what the Jubilee Alliance has done and they don't want to see more of their money being used simply for propaganda purposes! We know what Jubilee said they were going to do! Uhuru has himself admitted that he is totally unable to stop more of the corruption going on in Kenya right now. Does he need more time? Does he want to clean every penny in our treasury before he leaves office?

It is against the law for government employees to do what you have said. Since you don't respect the law, then the desperate and helpless people of Kenya will have another five years of massive looting as the Jubilee Alliance has done since they came to power.
As the Wakamba people say, "Mbaka nzeo yuumaa utuini." We are in again for another five years of shock as we witness more lawlessness and massive looting.
