Ruto ally Kimani Ichung’wah attacks Former President Uhuru Kenyatta alleging that he’s sabotaging the Affordable Housing Programme.
Kimani Ichung’wah, the leader of the National Assembly Majority and Member of Parliament (MP) for Kikuyu Town, attacked former President Uhuru Kenyatta once more on Friday, accusing him of undermining the government’s development plan.
The former president was accused of being the architect behind those undermining the government’s Affordable Housing program.
Ichung’wah went on to say that Uhuru did not want the scheme to move forward in Kiambu because he believed it posed a danger to a Ksh500 billion private city associated with the previous President.
This was because Uhuru had 2000 affordable housing units in Northlands City.
”Some Chinese contractor courtesy of state capture developed 2000 affordable housing units in a private city within Kiambu. Was the sabotage informed by the desire to make the private city the only affordable housing site in Kiambu?” Ichungwah posed.
The Kikuyu MP further accused him of sponsoring bloggers who spread propaganda on the affordable housing project.
”My reflections on how one who has been honoured to serve in high office, sabotaged the nation through state capture takes time to mobilize bloggers and political rejects to attempt a second sabotage of the Housing agenda in Kenya with particular focus on Kiambu using baseless propaganda,” he stated.
Ichung’wah went on to state that despite the setbacks, the affordable housing programme will progress even as a court order stands prohibiting the government from collecting the housing levy introduced in the 2023 Finance Act.
This comes after President William Ruto recently claimed that saboteurs of his affordable housing agenda were the forces behind a conservatory order issued by the high court that stipped the collection of the housing levy.
In another defence of Ruto’s housing project, Kimani Ichung’wah among other Kiambu county leaders had earlier alleged that Kiambu Governor Kimani Wamatangi was reluctant to embrace the affordable housing project among other government projects.
Led by Kimani Ichungwah, the leaders accused Kimani Wamatangi of not relinquishing land to the national government to set up affordable housing units.
”You may have already noticed the uncooperative character of our County Governor in this matter plus his deliberate attempts to sabotage most of the National Government Projects,” a letter signed by Kiambu leaders directed to Trade Cabinet Secretary Rebecca Miano partly stated.
