Bunge la Mwanachi says Miguna’s homecoming budget could have been used to feed the hungry
Bunge la Mwananchi has said that Miguna Miguna’s homecoming budget could have been used to feed a section of the millions of Kenyans that are sleeping on empty stomachs.
The group spokesperson Calvince Okoth Gaucho, in an interview with Nairobi News, said that a lot of money was used to facilitate the controversial lawyer.
Mr. Gaucho says that many Kenyans suffer due to the high cost of living.
“Many people are sleeping on empty stomachs, yet so much money was spent on Miguna’s homecoming.
The money could have been used to feed the millions, especially from Arid and Semi-arid areas,” said Gaucho.
On the other hand, the spokesman also notes that there was no need for the government to spend millions in building affordable houses, yet the price of Unga remains high.
Currently, over 4.35 million Kenyans across 23 counties are affected by drought.
The affected 900,000 children and 120,000 pregnant and lactating mothers require urgent nutritional support.
Mr. Gaucho also accused the Head of State of not fulfilling his promises to Kenyans during the campaign.
“The President told us during the campaign period he had a quick solution towards reducing the price of Unga. Now he has turned around and said he needs more time,” he noted.
President Ruto recently said he requires one year to reduce the price of Unga. During the campaigns, the Head of State suggested that 100 days would be enough.
Miguna has been out of the country for the past four years since he was deported by former president Uhuru Kenyatta’s regime for his involvement in Raila Odinga’s mock swearing-in as people’s president.
Miguna arrived in the country a few days ago.
Dr Miguna arrived aboard a Kenya Airways plane at the Jomo Kenyatta Kenyatta International Airport.
