Friday May 8, 2020 – Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) leaders have joined other Kenyans in asking President Uhuru Kenyatta to account for coronavirus funds.

On Thursday, Senate Minority Leader, James Orengo, and Minority Whip Junet Mohamed, separately, but in what looked like a coordinated message, asked State House and the Ministry of Health to account for Covid billions.

“If it was in democracies that have matured, this government would have resigned.”

“We would have had a general election now.”

“If you cannot defend your people from floods, and you cannot buy them masks, you don’t even deserve to be called government,” Mr Mohamed said in reference to Uhuru.

“This government has not done anything, except announcing numbers every day at 3 o’clock.”

“It cannot be business as usual and we keep quiet.”

“This is a government that could not even bother to give its citizens masks, let alone food.”

“We were told there will be free hand sanitisers, where are they?” Junet asked.

At the Senate, Mr Orengo, another key Odinga confidant, had one message for President Kenyatta’s Government: wake up!.

“The Jubilee government must wake up! You should get together.”

“You got only two years to go. Wake up!” a passionate Mr Orengo said.

The Siaya Senator said it is unacceptable that Kenya had not quite figured out how to address the perennial floods in western Kenya, especially in Nyando, Kisumu County, and Budalang’i in Busia County.
